1st XLIC Work Group 1 (Ultrafast electron dynamics in molecules) meeting @ University College London | London | United Kingdom

The 1st XLIC Work Group 1 (Ultrafast electron dynamics in molecules) meeting will take place on July 3-4, 2014. It will be co-located with the workshop Free Electron Lasers and Attosecond Sources (  at UCL London.

PROGRAM: The WG1 meeting will be organized in a format similar to Faraday discussions.

The FINAL meeting program including poster contributions and discussion points formulated by Discussion leaders is now available here.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS (about 200 words) is closed. They should address discussion points raised by the discussion leaders. Submitted abstracts will serve to organize the sessions, promoting discussions on most challenging aspects of ultrafast laser-matter interaction. The deadline for abstract submission was April 28.

The abstracts should be sent to The name of the files should contain the number of the topic and your name, e.g. “3_smirnova.doc” means the contribution by Olga Smirnova to the topic “High harmonic spectroscopy”.

  • Topic 1: XFEL and X-ray spectroscopy: experiment (Discussion leader: Jon Marangos)
  • Topic 2: Theory of atoms and molecules under intense short wavelength radiation  (Discussion leader: Peter Lambropoulos)
  • Topic 3:  High harmonic spectroscopy (Discussion leader: Yann Mairesse)
  • Topic 4: Time-dependent computational methods for multielectron systems in external fields   (Discussion leader: Alejandro Saenz)
  • Topic 5: Multielectron ionization & coupled electron-nuclear dynamics (Discussion leader:  Agapi Emmanouilidou )

In addition there will be two “Work in groups” sessions:

  • Group 1: TDDFT and applications to attosecond spectroscopy
    Discussion leaders: Francoise Remacle  and Franck Lepine
  • Group 2: Electron dynamics in strong IR fields
    Discussion leader: Bernard Piraux
