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.
We are delighted to announce we are now welcoming nominations for the 2017 PCCP Emerging Investigator Lectureship.
Recognizing and supporting the significant contribution of early career researchers in physical chemistry, chemical physics and biophysical chemistry, the lectureship is a platform for an early career physical chemist to showcase their research to the wider scientific community.
The recipient will receive £1000 to cover travel and accommodation costs to attend and present at a leading international meeting hosted by a PCCP Owner society. The recipient will also be invited to contribute a Perspective article to PCCP.
To be eligible for the lectureship, candidates must:
• Have completed their PhD
• Be actively pursuing an independent research career within physical chemistry, chemical physics or biophysical chemistry.
• Be at an early stage of their independent career (typically this will be within 10 years of completing their PhD, but appropriate consideration will be given to those who have taken a career break or followed a different study path.)
Selection criteria, nomination and judging process
• Nominations must be made via email to email@example.com using the PCCP Emerging Investigator Lectureship nomination form and a letter of recommendation.
• Individuals cannot nominate themselves for consideration.
• Selection will be made by the PCCP Editorial Board at the 2017 PCCP Editorial Board meeting.
• The winner will be selected based on their nomination, with due consideration given to the letter of recommendation, candidate biography, research achievements, previous PCCP publications and overall publication history.
Submission deadline: 15th August 2017

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.
The 2017 International Meeting on Atomic and Molecular Physics and Chemistry (IMAMPC) will be held in the city of Toruń, Poland at Nicolaus Copernicus University, 19 – 22 June 2017.

The German Bunsen Society of Physical Chemistry (DBG) will be hosting the 116th General Assembly of the German Bunsen Society for Physical Chemistry from 25th to 27th May 2017 at the TU Kaiserslautern, Germany. PCCP Executive Editor Dr Anna Simpson will be attending and looks forward to meeting you there. The assembly will also include an industrial symposium with accompanying exhibition and career forum.
- Main Topic: Physical Chemistry for Life Sciences
- Opening Lecture: Development of Proteomics Technologies and their Application to Life Sciences
- Industrial Symposium: Physical Chemistry for Life Sciences in Industry and Industrial Exhibition
The tremendous progress in Life Sciences that brought this discipline into the public spotlight in the last decades has been spurred by the development and refinement of methods from both experimental and theoretical physical chemistry. The contribution of physical chemistry to Life Sciences as a key technology of the 21st century has enabled the analysis of biologically relevant processes on a molecular level. This has been vital for medical science to design drugs and therapeutic approaches.
Physical chemistry concepts and methods branch out into the fields of biochemistry, molecular biology, and molecular medicine. This meeting shall bring together outstanding scientists to discuss cutting-edge results and push the frontiers of these fields further. The strong interdisciplinary focus of the 2017 Bunsentagung should foster discussions and spawn new collaborations across the boundaries of scientific disciplines.
