Recent years have witnessed the rapid and extensive development of a variety of experimental tools and of the corresponding theoretical models for the analysis of the structure, properties and dynamics of nuclear, atomic, molecular, biological and complex cluster systems. Frequently, these systems are studied by means of photonic, electronic, heavy particle and atomic collisions. Both experimental and theoretical aspects of cluster physics uniquely placed between nuclear physics on one hand, and atomic, molecular and solid state physics, on the other hand, were the subject of investigation.
The EPJD topical issue “Atomic Cluster Collisions” intends to gather the most recent experimental and theoretical results, both at the fundamental level of elementary mechanisms and at the more applied level, produced in this research area by the international community. The topical issue thus aims to provide a state-of-the-art description of what is being done in the field of structure-formation and dynamics of atomic and molecular clusters (free and deposited), nano-objects, ensembles of nanoparticles, nanostructures, biomolecules and biomolecular systems. This field covers many different types of nanosystems and processes therein, which include weakly bound van der Waals clusters, metallic clusters, nanodroplets, fullerenes, hydrocarbons, and water clusters; spectroscopic and collisional processes of excited molecules and clusters in the gas phase; collective electron excitations, plasmons; atomic and molecular processes in a medium; production of charged cluster ions; electron impact ionization of clusters; Coulomb explosion; fission and multi-fragmentation; high harmonic generation; photon/electron/ion irradiation and subsequent electron emission from clusters; collision-induced fragmentation/multi-fragmentation and phase transitions involving atomic clusters, nanoparticles and biomolecules. These topics have been presented at the recent ISACC 2017 meeting (held in October 02-06, Varadero, Cuba, Spain). Participants of this meetings are expected to contribute their reports to this topical issue. However, submission to this EPJD issue is open to the entire research community working in the aforementioned areas and all the interested teams and individual researchers are welcome to participate in the publication of this topical issue.
The Editorial Office of the European Physical Journal D therefore launches a call for submission for such papers. Authors are asked to submit their work, which has to be in the usual form of an original contribution to this Journal, directly to the Editorial Office at https://articlestatus.edpsciences.org/is/epjd, indicating their wish to appear in the topical issue on “Atomic Cluster Collisions”, and also which of the editors in charge they wish to handle their contribution.
Deadline for manuscript submission: March 31, 2018

Submissions are invited for a Special Issue of EPJD dedicated to low energy positron and electron interactions, associated with the POSMOL2017 conference, to be held on Magnetic Island, Australia.
POSMOL2017 incorporates the XIX International Workshop on Low-Energy Positron and Positronium Physics and the XX International Symposium on Electron-Molecule Collisions and Swarms, and while papers are primarily expected to be based on presentations at the meeting, the issue is open to all relevant work in the field. All submissions will be subject to the usual peer review standards of the journal.
The deadline for submissions will be 30 September, 2017.
We invite the contributors to submit their manuscripts before the deadline directly to the EPJD Editorial Office at https://articlestatus.edpsciences.org/is/epjd/. If you are a first-time author with EPJD, you will first be invited to register on the same web site. Submissions should be clearly identified as intended for the Special Issue "Low energy positron and electron interactions". Papers will be published continuously and will appear (as soon as accepted) on the journal website. The electronic version of the Special Issue will contain all accepted papers in the order of publication. More general information about EPJD including instructions for authors is available at http://epjd.epj.org/.

Submissions are invited for a Special Issue of EPJD dedicated to advances in plasma chemistry. The core content of this Special Issue will be based on the papers presented at the 7th Central European Symposium on Plasma Chemistry (CESPC-7), Sv. Martin na Muri, Croatia, from September 3rd to September7th, 2017. The CESPC conference was initiated 11 years ago and is supported by the Central European Initiative (CEI) and attended by scientists from all over the world.
The scope of this issue extends on major areas of fundamental studies and applications of plasma, and includes: fundamentals, modelling and diagnostics, new materials, energy technologies, environmental protection, bio- and medical-plasma technologies, surface processes, food and agriculture plasma technologies and related topics.
The submission is open to everyone working in the field. We invite contributors to communicate their intention to submit manuscripts for this Special Issue to the Guest Editors as soon as possible. Please provide the tentative title of the paper and a short abstract. The full manuscripts should be submitted before the deadline directly to the EPJD Editorial Office at https://articlestatus.edpsciences.org/is/epjd/.
Deadline for submission: September 1st, 2017.
