The CHIANTI database, a consistency check on the accuracy of the stored cross-section values in He I to O I isoelectronic sequence ions
U Feldman Artep, Inc., Ellicott City, MD 21042, USA (firstname.lastname@example.org) CHIANTI is an atomic database with software for calculating emission properties. It is extensively used in deriving the atomic properties of spectra recorded from astrophysical and low density laboratory plasmas. … Continue reading
Dubernet, M. L.; et al. The Virtual Atomic and Molecular Data Centre (VAMDC) Consortium is a worldwide consortium which federates atomic and molecular databases through an e-science infrastructure and an organisation to support this activity. About 90% of the inter-connected databases handle … Continue reading

Christophe Morisset (Instituto de Astronomia-UNAM, Mexico) In this talk I will present a review on the determination of oxygen abundance from photoionization models of nebulae. I will first describe the way models are performed using photoionization codes, explaining the necessary … Continue reading
Claudio Mendoza (IVIC, Caracas, and CeCalCULA, CPTM, Mérida, Venezuela) The reliability of the atomic data required in astrophysical applications, in particular in abundance determinations, has been a perennial concern to the few research groups that cater for this well-established data demand. In … Continue reading
