A principal goal in chemistry and physics is to fully map the dynamics on electronic timescales thereby “making a molecular movie” of the chemical processes. This can be applied to a wide range of species from the complex such as how a protein unfolds essential in molecular biology to the simple such as proton transfer in water important for radical formation in atmospheric chemistry. Spatially, one must attain subangstrom resolution in order to structurally image the molecule while controlling the various degrees of rotational and vibrational freedom. Temporally, femtosecond to subfemtosecond resolution is needed to resolve the nuclear and electronic dynamics.

However, to study coherent effects, amplitude and phase information of quantum states has to be retrieved of which the latter is not directly captured in diffraction imaging techniques. Thus, complementary methods with high phase sensitivity are required which are commonly developed in the ultrafast spectroscopy community. For this conference, we wish to bring together the leading scientists working in the fields of spatial and temporal imaging of molecular dynamics to discuss the recent developments and possible outlooks in the field. We invite especially young researchers and students with interest in this topic to participate.

Registration and abstract submission for posters, talks and "application issues" is closed.

Important dates and conference fee

The conference fee is 100€ and includes catering. Please register as early as possible. The number of participants is limited to 50.

If there are more requests for talks than time slots, then the organizers will decide based on the topic and submission date (early submission are preferred).

  • The registration for participation ended on Aug 15th, 2017.
