Ion traps are used as a basic tool in various experiments today, and ion trappers with different applications often deal with very similar problematics. In the course of the last years, it has become evident, that a training school/workshop devoted to the applications of ion trapping would be useful to the concerned community.

The workshop adresses researchers interested in the various experimental and theoretical aspects of ion trapping, including atomic and molecular spectroscopy, metrology, quantum information, high-precision determination of atomic ground state properties, cavity QED experiments as well as the production of cold molecules. Emphasis is given to tutorial courses on basic issues of ion trapping for young researchers. A large time-window will be devoted to scientific discussions in the beautiful environment.
