Interstellar space as a 'laboratory' in extreme conditions has stimulated
many new researches in the fields of physics and chemistry. At the same time,
physical and chemical points of view are becoming indispensable for the study of
astronomy and astrophysics. This workshop is proposed to offer an opportunity to
communicate and exchange research results among researchers who are interested
in physics and chemistry in space from the various points of view. In
particular, we focus on experimental and theoretical developments in studies of
bulk, atomic, and molecular processes relevant to astrophysics, and we discuss
applications to present and future astronomical observations. Participants from
wide fields: chemistry, planetary sciences, physics, and astronomy are welcome
to this workshop.
