This workshop brings together experimentalists and theorists working on strong-field, ultrafast laser interactions with atoms and molecules.  In particular, the workshop will focus on attosecond, few-cycle, and ultra-broadband pulses --- all rather broadly interpreted --- emphasizing what can be measured or controlled with them rather than their production.

This workshop also brings together a diverse group of researchers, including attophysicists, femtochemists, multidimensional spectroscopists, x-ray and FEL physicists, and those who have used half-cycle and shaped pulses on Rydberg systems. We aim for cross-fertilization from the more established of these disciplines to the newer ones to build on the hard won expertise already developed.
