55th Symposium on Theoretical Chemistry' (STC2019)

Date So, 22.09.2019 - Do, 26.09.2019
Location University of Rostock (Germany)
Program The STC will be one of the highlight events during this year's celebration of the 600th anniversary of the foundation of the University of Rostock in 1419.

With its long tradition the STC serves as a yearly meeting for theoretical chemists to exchange ideas and discuss latest results. Being broad in scope, every STC in general features a main topic. The focus of the STC2019 in Rostock will be 'Spectroscopy and Photoinduced Dynamics'.

Spectroscopy in time- and frequency-domain provides a primary tool for the detailed investigation of molecular processes ranging from simple gas phase reactions to biomolecular catalysis. With the advent of novel techniques such as two-dimensional spectroscopy and light sources in the X-ray regime, spectroscopy is pushing the borders, not only in terms of applications but also as far as theoretical methods are concerned. The challenge is open for Theoretical Chemistry and the STC2019 will reflect the current status, covering techniques and applications from the infrared to the X-ray regime.

This Rostock STC will feature about 11 invited speakers. About 25 oral presentations will be selected from the submissions. Two poster sessions will provide the platform for intense discussions. On September 25th, the Hellmann Prize will be awarded to an early career theoretical chemist. In addition to the scientific program, there will be a joint boat trip and a conference dinner on the Warnemünde beach.

Invited Speakers:

Sonia Coriani, Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby (DEN)
Bernd Engels, Universität Würzburg (GER)
Marco Garavelli, Université degli Studi di Bologna (ITA)
Stefanie Gräfe, Universität Jena (GER)
Stephan Kümmel, Universität Bayreuth (GER)
