Scope and venue:

ReisensburgStudying chemical reactions requires a detailed knowledge of the underlying potential-energy surfaces (PESs) that govern the nuclear motion. There is growing experimental evidence that many dynamic processes at surfaces are non-adiabatic, i.e., excited states of the system play an important role and the process can no longer be described by the Born-Oppenheimer ground state PES alone. The aim of the proposed workshop is to bring together scientists working on different approaches for excited state PESs and distinguished experimentalists to discuss and promote advances in this field.

With 40-50 participants and Schloss Reisensburg's picturesque setting on a hill close to GŁnzburg, the workshop will provide a stimulating atmosphere for deep, informal discussions between the experts from hitherto somehow separate communities.
