AtomDB Work week and Workshop 2014

The fourth AtomDB Workshop was held at the Tokyo Metropolitan University in Tokyo, Japan from Saturday September 6th to Tuesday September 9th 2014.

The four day workshop brought together producers of atomic data, both theoretical and experimental, with the users of atomic data relevant to X-ray astronomy. Thank you to all who attended. We have posted the talks and posters below.
