Scientific Scope
This symposium is organized by the Stored Particles Atomic physics Research Collaboration (SPARC) and the Atomic and Molecular Physics Division of the Portuguese Physical Society (Sociedade Portuguesa de Física). The SPARC collaboration has been formed to organize atomic physics experiments at the (FAIR) - Darmstadt, Germany, and aims to join expertise on atomic physics with highly charged ions at an international level.

This workshop will review the present status of the scientific, technical and financial issues of the SPARC collaboration and establish the forthcoming activities.

Review talks with special emphasis on critical and super-critical atomic fields, ion-laser and ion-surface interactions will be presented along with hot topics and new ideas recently proposed for the SPARC research program.
