The 3rd XLIC WG2 Expert meeting (July 22-28, 2016) was focused on Delocalized Electrons in Atomic and Molecular Nanoclusters. It was organized by Klavs Hansen and took place at the Ettore Majorana Center for Scientific Culture, Erice, Sicily, Italy.
It was aimed at scientists, postdocs and graduate students who work with the effects of delocalized electrons with focus on free nanoclusters. Subjects such as quantum size effects, novel materials, and reaction pathways exhibit a range of phenomena which are highly sensitive to delocalized electrons’ mobility, screening, response, direct and exchange interactions, correlations, etc. The aim of the workshop was to bring together researchers in adjacent fields to examine recent and future developments.
The structure was workshop format of a week’s duration and included invited talks, selected oral presentations, a poster session, as well as time for individual discussions, as can be seen in the program below. The number of participants was 58.
The workshop was organized locally by the Ettore Majorana Center for Scientific Culture. The center, with the president Prof. Antonino Zichichiby, has a long and illustrious history of organizing such types of meetings. The workshop was in the framework of the International School of Solid State Physics, directed by Prof. Giorgio Benedek.Klavs Hansen (Gothenburg, Sweden)
