Special Sessions

For the 68th Symposium, Wim Ubachs, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and Tim Steimle, Arizona State University, are organizing a mini-symposium entitled, "Spectroscopy Tests of Fundamental Physics". This mini-symposium will focus on experimental and theoretical efforts to characterize shifts in molecular quantum levels brought about by physics beyond the principles of General Relativity and the Standard Model. Invited speakers will include Peter Schwerdtfeger, Massey University, and Wim Ubachs, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. A second mini-symposium is being organized by Vincent Boudon, CNRS / Universite de Bourgogne and Peter Bernath, Old Dominion University on the subject of "Spectroscopy of Planetary Atmospheres." This mini-symposium is dedicated to the spectroscopy of planetary atmospheres including observations, laboratory measurements and modeling for the Earth, planets of the Solar System, exoplanets and brown dwarfs. Invited talks for this mini-symposium will be given by Pierre-Francois Coheur, Universite Libre de Bruxelles; Glenn Orton, JPL-California Institute of Technology; Jonathan Tennyson, University College London. A third mini-symposium is being organized by John Stanton, University of Texas at Austin entitled "Theory and Spectroscopy." This symposium will focus on the development, and use of, theoretical tools for addressing spectroscopic problems. Invited speakers include Jon Hougen, NIST; Horst Koeppel, Universitaet Heidelberg; Timothy Lee, NASA; and Cristina Puzzarini, Universita di Bologna.
