The Fourth International Conference on Laser Spectroscopy (FICOLS) was held in the Hotel Oberfahrt in Rottach-Egern, Tegernsee, June 11-15, 1979. Rottach-Egern is a well-known health resort situated on the southern end of Lake Tegernsee. As with the previous laser spectroscopy conferences in Vail, Megeve, and Jackson, the purpose of FICOLS was to provide <_n20_informal20_setting20_where20_an20_international20_group20_of20_scientists20_active20_in20_laser20_spectroscopy20_could20_discuss20_current20_problems20_and20_developments20_in20_the20_field.20_the20_program20_consisted20_essenc2ad_20_tially20_of20_invited20_lectures20_with20_appropriate20_time20_provided20_for20_the20_latest20_postdeadline20_results.20_the20_conference20_was20_attended20_by20_34020_scientists20_representing20_2520_countries3a_20_austria2c_20_australia2c_20_brazil2c_20_canada2c_-20_peoples20_rec2ad_20_public20_of20_china2c_20_denmark2c_20_finland2c_20_france2c_20_germany20_28_frg29_2c_20_germany20_28_gdr29_2c_20_great20_britain2c_20_india2c_20_italy2c_20_japan2c_20_netherc2ad_20_lands2c_20_new20_zealand2c_20_norway2c_20_pakistan2c_20_poland2c_20_spain2c_20_sweden2c_20_switzerland2c_20_u.s.k2c_2c_20_u.s.s.r.2c_20_and20_yugoslavia.20_unfortunately20_five20_of20_our20_colleagues20_from20_japan20_who20_planned20_to20_attend20_the20_meeting20_could20_not20_come20_due20_to20_an20_interruption20_of20_airline20_schedules2c_20_their20_absence20_was20_a20_distinct20_loss20_to20_the20_conference.20_however2c_20_their20_papers20_will20_be20_published20_in20_one20_of20_the20_forthcoming20_issues20_of20_the20_journal20_applied20_physics.20_numerous20_people20_have20_contributed20_to20_making20_the20_conference20_a20_success.20_especially20_we20_would20_like20_to20_thank20_the20_members20_of20_the20_steering20_committee20_for20_their20_advice20_concerning20_the20_program. informal="" setting="" where="" an="" international="" group="" of="" scientists="" active="" in="" laser="" spectroscopy="" could="" discuss="" current="" problems="" and="" developments="" the="" field.="" program="" consisted="" _essenc2ad_="" tially="" invited="" lectures="" with="" appropriate="" time="" provided="" for="" latest="" postdeadline="" results.="" conference="" was="" attended="" by="" 340="" representing="" 25="" _countries3a_="" _austria2c_="" _australia2c_="" _brazil2c_="" _canada2c_-="" peoples="" _rec2ad_="" public="" _china2c_="" _denmark2c_="" _finland2c_="" _france2c_="" germany="" _28_frg29_2c_="" _28_gdr29_2c_="" great="" _britain2c_="" _india2c_="" _italy2c_="" _japan2c_="" _netherc2ad_="" _lands2c_="" new="" _zealand2c_="" _norway2c_="" _pakistan2c_="" _poland2c_="" _spain2c_="" _sweden2c_="" _switzerland2c_="" _u.s.k2c_2c_="" _u.s.s.r.2c_="" yugoslavia.="" unfortunately="" five="" our="" colleagues="" from="" japan="" who="" planned="" to="" attend="" meeting="" not="" come="" due="" interruption="" airline="" _schedules2c_="" their="" absence="" a="" distinct="" loss="" conference.="" _however2c_="" papers="" will="" be="" published="" one="" forthcoming="" issues="" journal="" applied="" physics.="" numerous="" people="" have="" contributed="" making="" success.="" especially="" we="" would="" like="" thank="" members="" steering="" committee="" advice="" concerning="">
