The International school on “The Frontiers of Attosecond and Ultrafast X-ray Science” was held from 19th to 28th March 2017 in Ettore Majorana Foundation and Centre for Scientific Culture, Erice, Sicily, Italy: The School was organized by Louis Di Mauro, Alicja Domaracka and Mauro Nisoli.

The main topics of the School were dedicated to attosecond science (generation and application of attosecond pulses to the investigation of electronic dynamics in atoms, molecules, nanostructures and condensed phases) and  fundamentals, methods and applications of free electron lasers, synchrotron radiation, ion collisions in atomic and molecular science. The school hosted 76 trainees and 21 lecturers form 9 countries who gave 53 hours of teaching.

During coffees breaks participants presented their research in the form of posters. Scientific discussions took place till late nights during evening parties and during two half-day excursions.

Position: Early Stage Researcher (PhD) in the framework of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Innovative Training Networks (ITN) H2020-MSCA-ITN-2014 MEDEA 641789


Institution: Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg, Germany

Duration: four years (from 01.01.2017)

Synthetic description of the project:

The project is focused on experiments to be performed at Free Electron Lasers (FELs), and, in particular at the FEL FERMI, that delivers tunable XUV pulses with a bandwidth between 30 and 90 meV. Coherent control schemes in the XUV spectral range exploiting the unique properties of the FEL FERMI will be investigated. In particular, the ESR will investigate how the combination of multi-color coherent XUV radiation can be used to control the photoionization process and electronic dynamics in inner valence shells of atoms and molecules. Finally, she/he will also investigate novel approaches for the generation of attosecond pulse trains using XUV FELs.

The work will be conducted in close collaboration with the atomic/molecular/ and optical physics group of the Elettra Sincrotrone led by Dr. Kevin Prince and Dr. Carlo Callegari.

The 3rd XLIC General Meeting will include also the 2nd Young Scientist Forum (YSF) – a special half-day with talks given by young researchers (PhD students and post-docs). The talk format will be 15 minutes + 5 minutes of discussion.

Seven young speakers will be selected by the young scientific committee on the basis of the submitted abstracts. The presenting author should attach also a short CV (including information about education, oral presentations and publications). For YSF talk, an abstract has to be submitted before September 15th, 2015.

Moreover, during the meeting, two special poster sessions are foreseen in order to exchange views and stimulate discussion on research topics, and to support interdisciplinary communication between the researchers. All young researchers participating in the XLIC General Meeting are encouraged to present a talk and/or poster.

The length of the abstract is limited to one A4 page, including figures and tables (see

The selection of young speakers will be announced on September 25th, 2015.

The 1st XLIC Young Scientist Forum has been held during the 2nd  XLIC General Meeting in Gdansk University of Technology (Gdansk, Poland).

It was a special half-day with talks given by  young researchers (PhD students and post-docs). The committee of young researchers selected, on the basis of submitted abstracts, the following young speakers to give a talk at the YSF. The list is given in  alphabetical order:

  • Cedric Bomme, FLASH, Germany
  • Michael Capron, Univerty of Rennes, France
  • Aurélie Chenel, Université Paris-Sud, France
  • Simone De Camilis, Queen’s University Belfast, UK
  • Ewa Erdmann, Gdansk University of Technology, Poland
  • Tor Kjellsson, Stockholm University, Sweden
  • Sylvain Maclot, Université de Caen Basse-Normandie, France
  • Ana Martín Sómer, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain
  • Lihi Musbat, Bar Ilan universityk, Israel
  • Geert Reitsma, University of Groningen, Netherlands
  • Estefania Rossich Molina, Université Evry Val d’Essonne, France
  • Janne Solanpää, Tampere University of Technology, Finland

jangiYoung researchers participating at XLIC General Meeting also had the opportunity to present their results as a poster. Two poster sessions were foreseen in order to exchange views and stimulate discussions on research topics, and to support interdisciplinary communication between the researchers.


The 2nd General Meeting of the COST Action CM1204 “XUV/X-ray light and fast ions for ultrafast chemistry (XLIC)” was held from 10th to 12th of September, 2014 in Poland. Gdansk University of Technology hosted 91 guests from 22 countries. It is important to note that almost half of participants where PhD Students or Early Stage Researchers.

This three-day meeting was divided into nine speaking sessions, two of them taken by young researchers. This two sessions composed the 1st Young Scientists Forum of COST Action, where young scientists presented 12 talks selected from a set of send proposals. Other 24 lectures were given by invited speakers. From scientific point of view our meeting was very fruitful and many talks were provided by experimentalists. Some new collaborations have been set.

DSC_8573_fullAt the end of the first day, there was the XLIC Management Committee meeting and there were two  poster sessions with 84 poster contributions.
