Conference Scope

We cordially invite you to participate in the first Mediterranean Conference on the Applications of the Mössbauer Effect (MECAME 2015) to be held in the Conference Hall of Hotel Donat, Zadar, Croatia, from 7–10 June 2015.

The conference is organized in honour of Dr. Svetozar Musić (Ruđer Bošković Institute, Zagreb, Croatia) on the occasion of his 70th birthday and to celebrate his life-long scientific contribution, particularly for his introduction of Mössbauer spectroscopy as a research technique in Croatia. With this Conference, we wish to acknowledge his contribution to science in Croatia and to the development of Mössbauer spectroscopy, in particular.

The Mössbauer spectroscopic technique has enabled scientists to solve problems in physics, chemistry, biomedicine, mineralogy, materials science and environmental research. The development of Synchrotron Mössbauer spectroscopy has further opened the possibilities for investigating the fundamental properties of matter.

The aims of MECAME 2015 are to present new investigations and reviews of the applications of Mössbauer effect, to exchange ideas and to promote collaboration among scientists concerning the future potential of Mössbauer spectroscopy. One of the aims of MECAME 2015 is also to enhance the development of Mössbauer spectroscopic research in Mediterranean countries, stimulating closer interaction among scientists in this region of the world.

Past regional meetings of the Mössbauer community have been very successful, and we hope that the establishment of MECAME will further the development of the method in Mediterranean countries.  

We would also like to extend this invitation to scientists who are experts in other spectroscopic techniques to participate at MECAME 2015.
