REGISTRATION

We kindly ask you to consider early registration. Please note that the deadline for a poster registration is *15 December 2014*.

BURSARIES

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.

IBER2017
Sep 12 – Sep 14 all-day

The next Joint Iberian Meeting on Atomic and Molecular Physics IBER 2017 will take place in Barcelona, Spain from September 12 to 14, 2017.

IBER is the biannual conference organised jointly by the Atomic and Molecular Physics Specialised Group (GEFAM) of the Spanish Royal Society of Physics and the Portuguese Society of Physics.

The main purpose of this series of IBER conferences is to bring together scientists of Iberian community dedicated to Atomic and Molecular Physics and related areas of to facilitate the interaction and exchange of knowledge between their research groups. Researchers and scientists from all over Europe and the world are invited to attend this conference and share knowledge. The conference will be structured in three days with plenary lectures, invited lectures, oral presentations and a poster session.

For detailed information and registration please visit:

Specific topics of IBER include:

  • Quantum Physics and Chemistry
  • Experimental Techniques and Applied Physics
  • Atomic and Molecular Spectroscopy and Structure
  • Biomolecules and Biophysics
  • Clusters, Nanoparticles
  • Surfaces and Condensed Phases
  • Dynamical Studies of Elementary Processes
  • Femtochemistry and Laser Control

CECAM School: School on Kinetics and Dynamics of Chemical Reactions @ CECAM ES

CECAM School: School on Kinetics and Dynamics of Chemical Reactions @ CECAM ES | Zaragoza | Aragon | Spain

Molecular reaction dynamics has become an integral part of modern chemistry and is set to become a cornerstone for much of the natural sciences. Molecular reaction dynamics is the study of elementary processes and the means of probing them, understanding them, and controlling them. It can be applied to reactions in solution and to reactions on surfaces, exploring the elementary steps in catalysis. Nowadays chemistry requires a molecular level understanding of the reactivity. Moreover, chemical kinetics in an old discipline (born in 1850) that deals with the rates of chemical reaction and how these rates depend on factors such as concentration and temperature. Although it in principle presents a macroscopic point of view, this can be directly related with the molecular point of view. Thus, kinetic or dynamic Monte Carlo simulations allow us to bridge the gap of many orders of magnitude in length and time scales between the processes on the molecular scale and the macroscopic kinetics.
The present school is open to European master and PhD students and postdocs with interest to understand chemical reactions at molecular level and to apply the theoretical and computational chemistry to this matter. First-year students of the Erasmus+ Master European in Theoretical Chemistry and Molecular Modelling will attend to this school as a part of their mandatory subjects although second-year students of this Master but from the rest of Europe it is expected that can attend too. Last year (2017) we made by first time this school and it was very successful.

The school will cover the principal aspects of the kinetics and dynamics of chemical reactions, centred mainly in the theoretical and computational approaches, although some experimental techniques will also be explained.

Registration deadline: March 9, 2018
