Quantum effects in complex systems – Oral deadline 19 December 2018

We are delighted to highlight some excellent research recently published in a range of Royal Society of Chemistry journals covering exciting developments in the area of quantum effects in complex systems.

You can get involved in discussing the latest developments in this exciting area with speakers including Helen Fielding (UCL), Greg Scholes (Princeton University), Sharon Hammes-Schiffer (Yale University), David Manolopoulos (University of Oxford) and many more. Submit your abstract for Quantum effects in complex system: Faraday Discussion.

This event in Coventry, UK on 11–13 September 2019 will address the challenge of understanding nuclear quantum effects in complex, many-particle systems, and the insights this can provide into photosynthesis, proton and electron transport in materials, tunnelling in enzyme-catalysed reactions etc.


Submit your abstract by 19 December and get involved!
