The 11th International Conference on Cryocrystals and Quantum Crystals (CC11) is organized in Turku, Finland by the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Wihuri Physical Laboratory, and Congress Office of the University of Turku. Conference Chairs are Prof. Kalle-Antti Suominen, Dr. Simo Jaakkola and Dr. Sergey Vasiliev.
The Conference on Cryocrystals and Quantum Crystals (CC) dates back to 1979, when the first national USSR meeting dealing with cryocrystals and quantum crystals was organized in Viljandi, Estonia by V.G. Manzhelii (Verkin Institute for Low Temperature Physics and Engineering NASU) and A.F. Prikhot’ko (Institute of Physics NASU). The subsequent biannual meetings were held in Kharkov (Ukraine), Almaty (Kazakhstan), Donetsk (Ukraine) and Odessa (Ukraine).
Since the Almaty meeting in 1995 the CC Conference had acquired international status becoming an important international forum for presenting new results on physics and chemistry of atomic and molecular solids. The great merit in achieving of this goal belongs to Prof. Vadim Manzhelii and Prof. Horst Meyer, the co-chairs of the first International CC-1995.
The next two CC conferences were held in Poland, in Polanica Zdrój (September 1997) and in Szklarska Poręba (August 2000). The venues of the next CC conferences were Freising (Germany) in 2002, Wrocław (Poland) in 2004, Kharkov (Ukraine) in 2006, Wrocław (Poland) in 2008, Chernogolovka (Russia) in 2010, Odessa (Ukraine) in 2012 and the last meeting was held in the city of Almaty (Kazakhstan).
The scope of CC is wide, including, but not limited to:
- thermodynamic and mechanical properties of cryocrystals and quantum crystals
- order-disorder phenomena
- optical and neutron spectroscopy of cryocrystals
- high-pressure studies of cryocrystals and quantum crystals
- charged species in cryocrystals and quantum crystals
- phenomena at the surface of quantum fluids and solids
- impurity-helium condensates
- matrix isolation in cryocrystals
- ultrafast dynamics in crystals
- crystalline and amorphous films, nanoscale systems
- supersolid state
- new emerging materials
- technological applications and instrumentation
CC11 will be a forum where ideas on various aspects of the physical, chemical and technological properties of solidified gases and other relevant materials can be exchanged and where top experts in the field can meet.
CC11 conference is a satellite of the International Conference on Quantum Fluids and Solids (QFS2016) which will be organized in Prague one week before. The time lag between these events and close locations of the conference venues allows convenient travel from Prague to Turku. Further information about QFS2016 can be found on the conference web site: http://www.qfs2016.org/index.php.
