FINANCIAL SUPPORT:
The participation of all XLIC MC members and speakers will be supported with Action budget. COST will also fully reimburse those young researchers selected for oral contributions in the Young Scientist Forum and depending on the budget we will try to cover also expenses from other young participants.
Participants entitled for reimbursement will receive an official notification and a message highligting some of the COST rules for reimbursement which should, in any case, be carefully examined before incurring any expense in:

Accommodation and meal expenses will be reimbursed on the basis of flat rates. This means that participants should look for their own accommodation.
A reduction on maximum flate rates allowed for this particular meeting has been agreed by XLIC MC. The applicble rates are 80 EUR for accomodation and 15 EUR for meal expenses. For participants staying in student dormitories or other cheap accomodation, less money can be claimed if so desired by requesting the reimbursement for a smaller number of nights.
For travel expenses actual costs can be claimed on the basis of the receipts provided. (Any restriction applying to travel expenses will be notified to each participant entitled for reimbursement)

IMPORTANT: Participants selected for reimbursement are kindly asked to keep their expenses as low as possible to ensure a wide distribution of the Action budget.

The submission of claims shall be done after the meeting, but, for any non-regular expense or doubt you may have, please, better ask in advance (info@xlic.eu). E.g. fligths departure/arrivals from/to places other than where the eligible participant is working/residing, extra meals, nights, taxi expenses, etc. shall not be reimbursed if permission is not requested before the meeting.

CECAM School: Quantum and Mixed Quantum Classical Dynamics in photochemistry @ CECAM HQ
May 14 – May 18 all-day
CECAM School: Quantum and Mixed Quantum Classical Dynamics in photochemistry @ CECAM HQ | Lausanne | Vaud | Switzerland

Photoinitiated processes are not only important for understanding natural phenomena but they also play an undeniable role in the booming fields of renewable energy, material design and medicine. Excited state processes have traditionally been explained from a static point of view, delivering in some cases a biased, incorrect or even incomplete description of the former. The simulation of the dynamics of such processes is therefore fundamental for the quest to understand the chemical and physical mechanisms.
The purpose of this school is to introduce its participants to state-of-the-art methodologies for the simulation of the dynamics of processes in the excited state, following the evolution in time of photoinitiated reactions, one of the priority topics of this call.

The school will be focused in simulating the dynamics of complex molecules. Electronic ab initio or TD-DFT methods would be sketched for obtaining the electronic wavefunctions or densities, that would be afterwards quantum-mechanically propagated. Moreover, several approaches for the treatment of the nuclei will be also provided, from full quantum dynamics to mixed quantum-classical dynamics.

The course is directed at PhD students, and young researchers, beginners in the field, working in theoretical chemistry and molecular physics.

CECAM workshop: Non-adiabatic quantum dynamics: From Theory to Experiments @ CECAM HQ
Jul 2 – Jul 6 all-day

The CECAM workshop entitled ‘Non-adiabatic quantum dynamics: From Theory to Experiments’ (https://www.cecam.org/workshop-0-1638.html) will be held at CECAM HQ in Lausanne, Switzerland from 2nd-6th July 2018.

This workshop aims to consolidate the rapid development in the field of molecular quantum dynamics and increase the synergy between experimentalists and theoreticians in this area. The program features a number of invited presentations from leading theoreticians and experimentalists and will be supplemented by a number of talks selected from submitted abstracts.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Lausanne.
