Joint ICTP-IAEA School and Workshop on Fundamental Methods for Atomic, Molecular and Materials Properties in Plasma Environments

PCCP is pleased to support the 2018 Joint ICTP-IAEA School and Workshop on Fundamental Methods for Atomic, Molecular and Materials Properties in Plasma Environments which will be held on 16-20 April 2018, at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Miramare, Trieste, Italy.

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will jointly organize this school and workshop on Fundamental Methods for Atomic, Molecular and Materials Properties in Plasma Environments. The one-week event at ICTP will provide training and information exchange for computational scientists working on models and data for atomic, molecular and materials processes relevant to fusion energy research, industrial plasmas, laser-produced plasmas, astrophysical plasmas, and warm and hot dense matter. The training is aimed at advanced PhD students, postdocs and other young researchers. The information exchange will span several disciplines from molecules to materials and from method developments to data treatments. Topics related to energetic events and electronically excited states are emphasized throughout the programme.

The schedule features lectures by international experts, invited and contributed research talks, posters and discussion sessions, with ample time available for interaction and discussions.

Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics is delighted to sponsor the prizes for the best posters at the meeting.

Submit your abstract before 20 November 2017.

10th Liblice Conference on the Statistical Mechanics of Liquids

The 10th Liblice Conference on the Statistical Mechanics of Liquids will be taking place at the Šumava National Park in Srní, Czech Republic between the 17-22 June 2018.

The upcoming 10th conference will follow the spirit of the previous meetings to provide an effective forum for contacts and for the exchange of ideas, with an emphasis on discussions rather than on formal presentations, highlighting achievements and challenges in both theoretical and applied aspects of the discipline. The program will include recent developments in the fields of:

  • Liquid-state theories
  • Molecular simulation: methodology and force field development
  • Fluid interfaces and confined fluids
  • Aqueous systems, including electrolytes
  • Soft matter
  • Nucleation; supercooled/glassy states
  • Active matter

The deadline for registration and abstract submission is 17 December 2017.

Chemical Bonding and Reactivity Spanning the Periodic Table: A Symposium in Honor of Roald Hoffmann

PCCP recently sponsored the symposium “Chemical Bonding and Reactivity Spanning the Periodic Table: A Symposium in Honor of Roald Hoffmann”, which was held at the 254th American Chemical Society meeting in Washington DC, August 20-24, 2017.

This symposium honored distinguished American Chemist and Nobel Prize winner, Prof. Hoffmann, who turned 80 years old this summer. Prof. Hoffmann has been influential in shaping the thinking of chemists working in a plethora of different fields – as evidenced by the talks given in the symposium by around 75 Hoffmann alumni, collaborators and friends, which showcased research in theoretical approaches to organic, organometallic, inorganic, biological and materials chemistry, as well as how matter responds to conditions of extreme external pressure.

Primarily experimental work was also featured in the symposium, and a historical lecture about Hoffmann’s role in the development of the “Woodward-Hoffmann” rules was given. Many of the speakers also highlighted Hoffmann’s role as a wonderful mentor, patient teacher and inspiring collaborator, as well as his artistic and humanistic endeavors.

PCCP was delighted to be involved with the meeting, and support our authors in discussing and advance their fields by participating at the symposium.
