The Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, the Universidad de Castilla la Mancha, the APQTC (Asociación para la Promoción de la Química Teórica y Computacional), and the organizers of this conference are delighted and honored to host this ESPA conference in the historic city of Toledo, World Heritage Site, during the summer of 2018.
With a theme of ‘Physical Chemistry and Functional Materials’, the PCFM 2018 conference features three days of scientific sessions, keynote & invited lectures, oral and poster communications, as well as exceptional networking opportunities, an exhibition and a unique social programme. The PCFM 2018 conference reflects the outstanding research being done in Europe and around the world by bringing together scientists from different countries and professional backgrounds to exchange ideas, advance knowledge and discuss key issues for physical chemistry and material science.
First prize was awarded to Marta Patricia Alejandra Mendez for her contribution “Inelastic collision calculations of heavy targets”.
Joint second prize was awarded to Szabolcs Goger for “Theoretical studies on the dynamics of the HO + HBr → H2O + Br reaction” and Francisco Ramirez for “Real time electron dynamics using TDDFT”.
Joint third prize was awarded to Jerome Deprince for “Plasma environment effects on K-lines of astrophysical interest”, Chuanguo Zhang for “Long-term evolution of cascades in bcc tungsten: effects of size distribution of interstitial clusters” and Suvam Singh for “Electron and positron induced scattering from propene”.
We are delighted to announce the winner of the PCCP Tulip2018 award that was given at the Tulip VII Summer School on Modern Developments in Spectroscopy, 3–6 April 2018 in Noordwijk, the Netherlands. The winner for the best presentation was Meissa Diouf of the Free University Amsterdam with a poster on HIGH-RESOLUTION CARS STUDY OF THE FUNDAMENTAL VIBRATION IN T2 AND DT. The winner received a certificate and a cash prize.

The Theoretical Chemistry Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry is pleased to announce the TCG conference 2018, which will be held at the University of Sheffield between 16 – 18 July.
The meeting will cover a broad spectrum of theoretical and computational chemistry, including talks by leading international and UK scientists. It will also incorporate the TCG Graduate Student Meeting, where final-year graduate students compete for the Coulson prize for the best graduate student talk.

Recently, groups from different fields have been making significant advances in creating the printing tools, chemical reactions, and analytical approaches for developing and studying 3D nanostructures composed of glycans and glycomimetics. This Faraday Discussion aims to bring these communities together in a single symposium to create a new language for approaching the challenge of carbohydrate-based biointerfaces ranging from researchers who focus entirely on printing tools, surface chemistry, binding thermodynamics, and glycobiology, and others whose nascent efforts to combine these are leading to groundbreaking new materials and a revolutionary understanding of these unconventional surface interactions, where multivalency and cooperativity have an outsized role. This symposium will show how chemistry, particularly the combination of physical and organic chemistry, will continue to drive advances in the field, and provide new approaches to understanding, and in turn, creating biomimetic materials with precisely controlled nanoscale structure in three dimensions.
The themes of this Faraday Discussion will be:
Multidimensional Micro- and Nano-printing Technologies
Preparation of Multivalent Glycan Micro- and Nano-Arrays
Glycan Interactions on Glycocalyx Mimetic Surfaces
New Directions in Surface Functionalization and Characterization
