Dear Colleagues,

despite our motivation and efforts, the recent COST application for a new network has not been selected in the actual call. Our project has achieved a very good score, but competiton is rude with only 25 successful Actions covering all topics and domains. But as you will see in this newsletter there are however plenty of activities, events, and an impressive job offer list !

In memory of Professor Danny Segal, a special issue of the Journal of Modern Optics will be dedicated to his research interests and short reminiscences of him. Selected papers from the 2016 European Conference on Trapped Ions, with which Danny was closely associated, will form part of this special issue. More info
