This Workshop ran over two weeks in Spring 2015. The Advanced School in the first week brought together experts in experimental and theoretical plasma spectroscopy to train early-career plasma scientists in the most recent developments and results in the field. The Workshop in the second week provided opportunities for participants to present their work, discuss current needs in plasma diagnostics, and motivate further developments.
For the Advanced School the desired participants by application were young researchers at about the post-doc level working in the field of radiative processes of atomic ions in fusion, astrophysical and industrial plasma or warm and hot dense matter and with a good background in theoretical plasma spectroscopy already. The Workshop in the second week was directed at more senior scientists in the field and was largely filled by invitation. A scientific contribution (talk or poster) was invited from each participant in the Advanced School or the Workshop.
