The rapidly emerging field of atomic cluster collisions attracts strong research interest of many experimental and theoretical groups worldwide. Being a highly interdisciplinary field, it has numerous links with atomic, molecular and optical physics, astrophysics, plasma physics, biophysics, physical chemistry, solid state physics and even molecular biology. This Topical Issue presents a state-of-the-art description of current research activities in the field of atomic cluster collisions and atomic cluster science. The contributions to this Issue represent experimental, theoretical and computational studies both at the fundamental level of elementary mechanisms and at a more applied level which is necessary in numerous applications of nano- and biotechnology, materials science and medicine.
