The 2nd European Conference on Physical Chemistry (ECPC-2017) will be held during September 24-27 2017 at Borgo, Corsica (France). The objective of this conference is to bring together researchers form countries all over Europe and keep abreast with the recent developments in this highly interdisciplinary field and will be of crucial importance for shaping the European scientific community. Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) is pleased to be supporting the event.
Femtochemistry Conference (FEMTO13) will take place in Cancún, México between 12-17 August 2017. FEMTO13 will bring together scientists from all over the world to present and discuss the most recent advances in femtoscience, including reaction dynamics; solvation phenomena; dynamics at interfaces; dynamics in biological systems; attosecond electron dynamics; and strong-field science and control of laser matter interactions; with contributions from both theory and experiment.
Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) will be supporting the event, contributing prizes for the best poster submissions, while PCCP Advisory Board member Dan Neumark will be present at FEMTO13 as an invited speaker.
The 116th General Assembly of the German Bunsen Society for Physical Chemistry took place between 25-27 May 2017, at the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern in Germany.

Congratulations to each of the winners!
The Gordon F. Kirkbright bursary award is a prestigious annual award that enables a promising student/non-tenured young scientist of any nation to attend a recognised scientific meeting or visit a place of learning. See previous winners here.
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.
Applications are invited for the 2018 Gordon Kirkbright Bursary.
The closing date for entries is 31 December 2017.
