The first meeting of the Working Group 3 will take place in Birmingham Apr. 14th – 16th 2014.
The Working group focuses on the control of chemical reactivity using laser light. There will be 5 sessions covering control strategies, strong field control, measuring the evolving system, control in the condensed phase and applications. Contributions from young scientists are encouraged: as a talk or as a poster.
Registration will be open Feb. 15th.

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 (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/phys/amopp/atto-fel-conference) at UCL London.
PROGRAM: The WG1 meeting will be organized in a format similar to Faraday discussions.
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 email@example.com. 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
The program for each session/topic can be checked following the links above.
BUDGET ACCOMMODATION: Single rooms at UCL dorms are still available for booking either at “Schafer House” for 36.5 pounds per night or at “Ifor Evans” house for 32.5 pounds per night.
Book your room by sending e-mail to Ms Cherril Fontaine firstname.lastname@example.org
WG1 MEETING REGISTRATION (NEW DEADLINE: April 11th, 2014 at midnight):No more submissions accepted at this time.
The European XFEL Users’ Meeting 2015 will be held at DESY Hamburg on 28 – 30 January 2015. The meeting will be organized jointly with the DESY Photon Science Users’ Meeting 2015.
The programme of the meeting and other details, including registration, can be found at www.xfel.eu/2015-users-meeting
We kindly ask you to consider early registration. Please note that the deadline for a poster registration is *15 December 2014*.
We are pleased to announce that we are again able to offer to a limited number of young scientists a financial contribution, depending on distance, towards travel and living expenses. All current PhD students, as well as scientists who obtained their doctoral degree after 1 January 2013 are eligible. We encourage you to forward this information to science graduate students or recent PhD’s who might be interested. Deadline for application is *Thursday, 11 December 2014*.
HOTEL ACCOMMODATION / TOURISM TAX
When booking your hotel accommodation, you should mention that you are a visitor to European XFEL / DESY. Otherwise you might be asked to pay a tourism tax on your hotel bill. A list of hotels can be found on the meeting website.
The first MOLIM WG3 Meeting (CMST COST Action CM1405) “Algorithm Development and High Performance Computing in Chemistry and Physics 2016” will be held on March 21 and 22, 2016 in Bratislava, Slovakia.
This two-day meeting is aimed at bringing together theoretical and experimental researchers working in high-profile algorithms and high-performance computing to treat efficiently the nuclear motions in molecular systems and at molecule/surface interfaces. The meeting is organized within the COST Action CM1405 “Molecules in Motion” (MOLIM) led by Prof. Attila G. Császár (Action Chair) and Prof. Majdi Hochlaf (Action Vice-Chair). The action’s website is http://cost-molim.eu.
The number of participants is limited to 50 and the early deadline for registration is November 30, 2015.
The invited speakers include:
Chiara Cappelli, Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, Italy Klaus von Haeften, University of Leicester, United Kingdom Lauri Halonen, University of Helsinki, Finland Shimshon Kallush, The Hebrew University, Israel Kari Laasonen, Aalto University, Finland Vincent Liegeois, Université de Namur, Belgium Jorge M.
