In the spring of 1970 Peter Farago organised a three-day convention on Polarised Electron Beams at Carberry Tower, close to Edinburgh. even supposing the advance of the gallium arsenide resource, which was once to revolutionise the area of experimental polarised electron physics, used to be nonetheless a few years sooner or later, the assembly supplied an enormous discussion board for the trade of rules between theoreticians and experimentalists engaged in either low and high power electron collision reports. once the choice have been taken to carry the fifth eu convention on Atomic and Molecular Physics in Edinburgh in 1995, it happened to the editors of the current quantity that it might be hugely acceptable to mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Carberry Tower convention through setting up an ECAMP satellite tv for pc assembly in honour of Peter Farago. the chance to pay tribute to Peter's many very important contributions within the vast box of electron physics attracted colleagues from allover the realm to the symposium, which used to be held within the rooms of the Royal Society of Edinburgh on thirty first March and 1st April 1995. Peter himself, now Professor Emeritus on the collage of Edinburgh, used to be current during the assembly. We have been relatively satisfied to welcome again to Edinburgh many individuals within the unique Carberry Tower convention; those incorporated Professor P. G. Burke, Professor J. Kessler, Professor E. Reichert and Professor H. C. Siegmann, whose evaluate papers were highlights of the 1970 meeting.
