2nd WG1 Meeting “Ultrafast electron dynamics in molecules” (COST Action CM1204)
Edinburgh, UK.
29-30 August 2016

The second WG1 meeting of COST CM1204 Action was organized by Prof. Olga Smirnova and Dr. Adam Kirrander. It was aimed at presenting advances of all the nodes participating in the WG1 of the action, as well as to discuss problems and promote collaborations between all partners.

The meeting was organized into 6 sessions. Each session was moderated by a discussion leader. Each session opens with 10 min introduction to the field, presented by a discussion leader. The introduction was followed by 3 or 4 talks,  20 minutes each (without the questions). Each session was concluded by a 30 minutes general discussion involving 3 or 4 speakers (altogether at the stage, see pictures below) on the topics of their talks and topics suggested by the the discussion leader, who guided this discussion. The audience participated very actively in these discussions.  3 hot-topics were selected from contributed abstracts. The meeting also included 2 poster-sessions.

The number of participants was 78.
The final program of the meeting can be found below.

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

The 3rd General Meeting of COST Action CM1204 was organized by K. Tőkési at Centrum Hotel, Debrecen as chair and A. Csehi at University of Debrecen as co-chair.

The site of the Workshop, Debrecen – town since the 14th century – located in the North-Eastern part of Hungary, in the middle of the Hungarian Great Plain at a distance of 220 km (130 miles) from Budapest, is the second largest Hungarian city (with ca. 210,000 inhabitants).

The workshop was an annual meeting of CM1204 action, which deals with physical and chemical phenomena induced by electromagnetic fields and charged particles.

The objectives of workshop were to assess the state of the art in the current understanding of a variety of basic phenomena in the electron and atom dynamics such as charge-exchange processes collective as well as single-particle excitation and ionization, energy loss, and photon emission processes, collision induced physical, chemical and biological reactions radiation damage and materials modification.

The meeting included the following activities: 24 invited talks, 12 oral presentations by early stage scientists and 2 poster sessions. During the poster section 43 posters were presented. The XLIC MC meeting took place on November 2nd. The number of participants was 89.

The final program of the meeting can be found below with the photo of the participants.

The conference was very successful and useful for all participants. The oral lectures satisfied the high standard. During the free times between the sections we had fruitful discussions about the future plans. We have very positive feedbacks from the conference.

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.

Ultrafast electron dynamics in molecules: Working Group 1 Meeting of COST Action CM1204
London, UK.
Thu. 3rd – Fri. 4th July 2014

The first WG1 meeting of COST CM1204 Action was organized by Dr. Olga Smirnova  at University College London. It was aimed at discussing forefront problems and promoting collaborations between the partners.

The meeting was organized in the style similar to Faraday discussions. Five discussion leaders together with the Core groups of participants  formulated discussion materials that were available on-line since early April:

  • 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 were 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

Other participants of WG1 read these discussion materials and responded, by sending the abstracts of their contributions. All abstracts were accepted. The program was created on the basis of those materials.

The number of participants was 85, with 13 Action countries represented.
The final program of the meeting can be found below.
