Royal Society Discussion Meeting
Astronomy, Physics And Chemistry Of H3+
Organized by E. Herbst, S. Miller, T. Oka and J.K.G. Watson
This Discussion Meeting was a new attempt to assemble researchers from different fields in which H3+ plays a major role and to discuss the most fundamental molecular ion from a variety of perspectives. Recent discoveries of H3+ both in molecular clouds and in the diffuse interstellar medium made this discussion meeting particularly timely.
This meeting was accompanied by a one-day meeting entitled "Molecules and Dust in Regions of High Excitation" on February 8th at University College London organized by D.A. Williams, D. Clary, and J. Tennyson, as well as a one-day meeting entitled "H3+ Further Developments and Future Directions" on the 11th, also at University College London, organized by us. All interested attendees of the Royal Society Meeting were welcome at both of these meetings.
