FEMTO 14 – Second Announcement
We are pleased to continue to announce The 14th Femtochemistry Conference (FEMTO 14) – Dynamics of the Complexity in Chemistry, Biology, and Physics – which will be jointly organized by Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) and East China Normal University (ECNU), to take place in Shanghai, China from July 28 to August 2, 2019. The venue is at the Jin Jiang Grand Hall of Jin Jiang Hotel in the center of Shanghai city.
We invite you to register and submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations. Abstract submission closes on May 15. Hotel reservation is open as well. You can find further information and updates on the conference website: http://femto14.htcis.net/.
FEMTO 14 will celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the Nobel Prize to Femtochemistry in memory of the late Nobel Laureate Ahmed H. Zewail. The conference will bring together scientists from all over the world to present and discuss the most recent advances in understanding the dynamics of the complexity using ultrafast photons and electrons, including various complex processes in chemistry, biology, materials, and physics with contributions from both theory and experiment. The topics include:
1. Reaction Dynamics of Complex Molecules in Gas Phase and in Solution
2. Structural Dynamics of Molecules, Solids, and Biological Systems in Space and Time
3. Biological Dynamics in DNA/RNA and Proteins
4. Chemical Dynamics at Surfaces, Interfaces, and Nanostructures
5. Dynamics of Strongly Correlated Materials and Energy Conversion
6. Strong Laser Field and Optical Control of Light-Matter Interactions
The confirmed invited speakers are as follows:
Biman Bagchi (India); Lin X. Chen (USA); Majed Chergui (Switzerland);
Marcos Dantus (USA/Mexico); Thomas Elsaesser (Germany); Weihai Fang (China);
Graham Fleming (USA); Qihuang Gong (China); Tony Heinz (USA);
Henry Kapteyn (USA); Ferenc Krausz (Germany); Ruxin Li (China)
Hiroshi Miyasaka (Japan); Kenji Ohmori (Japan); Ilme Schlichting (Germany);
George Schatz (USA); Albert Stolow (Canada); Martin Wolf (Germany);
Xueming Yang (China); Jie Zhang (China); ……
The series of biennial FEMTO meetings started in 1993 and the first conference was held in Berlin, Germany. Previous editions of this meeting have been held in eleven different countries, and after 10 years, the meeting is coming back to China again. Therefore, FEMTO 14 builds on the very rich history of previous Femtochemistry meetings.
On behalf of the organizing committee, we are looking forward to welcoming you in Shanghai on July 28, 2019. We very much appreciate if you can spread this conference to your colleagues and students. If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
