Control of Chemical Reactivity: Working Group 3 Meeting of COST Action CM1204
Mon. 14th – Wed. 16th April 2014
The meeting was a short workshop aimed at theoreticians and experimentalists interested in using light fields to control molecular reactions. Invited speakers covered a range of topics in the field, such as control in condensed phases, strong field control, polyatomic light-matter interactions, attosecond pulse control. The idea was to bring together people from the different areas to exchange ideas and identify the present state-of-the-art and problems to be solved.
The structure was based on oral presentations including overview seminars from leading researchers, state-of-the-art research talks and presentations by young researchers. Posters were also presented throughout the meeting and at a focused poster session. There were long discussion time amongst participants.
The number of participants was 39 from 11 countries with a mix of ages and career stages. There was a good atmosphere of discussion at the meeting. The final program of the meeting can be found below.
