3rd Announcement

Quantum Atomic and Molecular Tunneling in Solids 2003

The XIIth International Workshop on "Quantum Atomic and Molecular Tunneling in Solids" 
will be dedicated to  the memory  of Mik Pintar who  passed away on February 9, 2003,  
and was a leading figure in this international series.   The workshop will held at the 
University of Florida in Gainesville,   Florida,  June 22-25, 2003.	

We are still accepting abstracts  for a limited number of oral presentations  
(20 minutes plus 5 for discussion) to accompany  the invited lectures (45 minutes) as 
well as poster submissions by the participants.  For questions  concerning  the scientific 
program  you may contact Juergen Eckert  (juergen at lanl.gov   or  juergen at mrl.ucsb.edu ) 
or Neil Sullivan  (neil at phys.ufl.edu)	
Prospective  attendees should  email Carol Binello  at  cbinello at clas.ufl.edu  
and indicate  if you wish to present  a talk or poster and include  the  title of your 

Please register via the Web,
