The controlled interaction of electron beams with matter enables a multitude of possibilities for either analytical characterization techniques such as cathodoluminescence or electron energy-loss spectroscopy, or advanced applications in acceleration science as well as fundamental quantum optical research. The stimulated processes made available by the so-called photon-induced near-field electron microscopy technique in contrast with the spontaneous processes are intensively studied by our community, allowing us to understand the intimate quantum processes of the nanoworld. Thus, topics such as coupling to quantum objects and decoherence are becoming more and more tractable and applicable. Our workshop aims at bringing together experts from both experiment and theory and from this field and related fields, including Smith Purcell radiation generation, electron beam shaping, ultrahigh brightness electron sources, strongfield physics and well-matching parts from the large field of nanophotonics. Our organization team as well reflects these diverse and at the same time complementary scientific approaches. Invited speakers include a well-balanced mixture spanning from world-leading senior experts to younger colleagues just starting their labs, from all over the world, including colleagues from Israel, Germany, Austria, Canada,  France, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, and the United States. We hope and are confident that experienced as well as young researchers will participate and enjoy flourishing discussions and interactions - in a beautiful setting at the Mediterranean Sea. The poster prize winners will be given the opportunity to present a hot topic talk.

The conference language will be English.
