F3.Hydrogen diffusion, tunneling, trapping
F4.Crystal structures, H-induced material transformations
F5.Thermodynamics, phase diagrams
F6.Optical, magnetic, and electronic properties
F7.Isotopic phenomena including muons
M1.New absorbers - properties and phenomena
M2.Thin films, nanocrystalline, amorphous, cluster, and composite materials
M3.H in non-metal materials
A1.Ni/MH batteries, fuel cells
A2.H2 gaseous, thermal, and catalytic applications
