9th International Meeting on Atomic and Molecular Physics and Chemistry

The 9th International Meeting on Atomic and Molecular Physics and Chemistry (IMAMPC) will be taking place in Berlin, Germany between 5-8 June 2018.

This interdisciplinary meeting was conceived to encourage the assistance and active participation of young theoreticians and experimentalists in the field of atomic and molecular physics. Keeping with this tradition, the 9th edition of the IMAMPC will promote innovative research by young scientists, in order to highlight their important contributions to the field.

The meeting will be divided in 11 topical sessions, each opened by a renowned speaker. As element of novelty, a general animated discussion will be held at the end of each session to summarize the findings. We strongly encourage early-career independent researchers, postdocs, and students to submit abstracts, among which we will select 23 high-quality contributions for oral presentation. A non-exhaustive list of topics covered by the conference is

  • Macromolecules and biologically-relevant systems
  • Reactive collision, scattering, ultracold chemistry
  • Photochemistry/Photodynamics
  • Spectroscopy and electronic structure theory
  • Electron dynamics

Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) is pleased to support the event.

2nd European Symposium on Chemical Bonding

The 2nd European Symposium on Chemical Bonding will be taking place in Oviedo, Spain from 3-7 September 2018. Following the spirit of the ESCB1, the conference will be devoted to showing new developments as well as relevant applications in the field of chemical bonding. Besides a set of invited lectures by leaders in the field, ESCB2 expects gather a number of younger researchers, for whom there will be shorter oral communications.

In keeping with the tradition of ESCB1, a practical school on methods, applications and computational tecniques, this time focused on quantum chemical topology tools in chemical bonding will take place before the beginning of the meeting, from September 2 to September 3.

Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) and Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry are delighted to be supporting the event.

Submissions for poster abstracts close on 30 June 2018.

Gordon F. Kirkbright Bursary Award, 2019

The Gordon F. Kirkbright bursary award is a prestigious annual award that assists a promising early career scientist of any nation to attend a recognised scientific meeting or visit a place of learning. (We define early career as being either a student, or an employee in a non-tenured academic post or in industry, within 7 years of award of PhD excluding career breaks).

The fund for this bursary was established in 1985 as a memorial to Professor Gordon Kirkbright in recognition of his contributions to analytical spectroscopy and to science in general. Although the fund is administered by the Association of British Spectroscopists (ABS) Trust, the award is not restricted to spectroscopists, but is open to all involved with or utilising analytical science-based techniques.

Applications are invited for the 2019 Gordon Kirkbright Bursary.

An Application Form can be downloaded from:

www.abstrust.org/kirkirkbright-bursary-award-application-form

or for further information visit:

www.abstrust.org or contact abstrustuk@gmail.com

The closing date for entries is 30 November 2018.
