The papers in this volume focus on the changes in our understanding of the behaviour of atomic and molecular few body systems. The diversity of research areas represented at the meeting, coupled to a common focal point, reveals different perspectives on basic questions of interest, and exposes a new conceptual approach to the dynamics of few body problems. Special emphasis on topics such as collisional behaviour, threshold phenomena, recombination and photoionizations provides a broad overview of the field.
