XIVth Latin American Conference on the Applications of the Mössbauer Effect(LACAME 2014),10-14 November


LACAMEs are special scientific events. They are regional meetings that aim at stimulating the development of Mössbauer Spectroscopy (MS) in Latin American countries, all of them with unparallel common cultural roots, but most of them with limited resources. MS is a particular technique suitable for promoting the scientific development in these societies. The organization of a conference like LACAME gives the young scientists of the region who do not have many chances to visit other laboratories or attend the ICAME meetings the opportunity to improve their scientific progress, and brings to the scientific communities and young researchers the feeling of how experimental physics can be performed at a high level.

As a consequence of these meetings, the Mössbauer community is growing in Latin America. New laboratories have been set up and the improvement of the existing ones has been observed. The collaboration, interchange and scientific agreements between laboratories, some of them isolated prior to the LACAME conferences, have been greatly enhanced.

The XIVth Latin American Conference on the Applications of the Mössbauer Effect - LACAME 2014 will be held from November 10th to 14th, 2014 in Mexico. LACAME started in 1988 in Rio de Janeiro and has grown steadily since then, changing the venue every two years from different nations where Mössbauer research laboratories exist.

We do believe that the special ingredient added by LACAME will help flourish the development of science and MS in this part of the world; let us hope this trend continues growing.

We welcome you all to LACAME-2014, and we are looking forward to seeing you in Mexico in November 2014.

The official language of the Conference is English.
