Are you an early career researcher working in the field of ultrafast science and attosecond chemistry? Then the Young Scientist Symposium, 2021 is the right platform for you to disseminate your work and to find out what the experts of this research area have in mind!

The Young Scientist Symposium, 2021 is organized by the AttoChem Network for fostering experimental and theoretical efforts to exploit the enormous potential of attosecond techniques in chemistry. The focus will be on the recent works of emerging early career scientists related to ultrafast chemistry. This will be accompanied by plenary talks and panel discussions on the state- of-the-art developments and challenges of this area and the intersection of experiment and theory by leading scientists.

There is both the possibility to give an oral presentation or to present a poster.

The conference will be held completely online during 14th-17th September, 2021. Registration is free of cost.

Conference topics

  • Theoretical treatment of photoionization processes
  • Ultrafast light sources from the THz to the X-ray wavelength range
  • Ultrafast dynamics in molecular gases, liquids and solids
  • Theory and Applications of Quantum Chemistry methods
  • Correlated methods for ultrafast spectroscopies
  • Applications of attosecond techniques in chemical problems
