Welcome to the Stereodynamics 2018 conference website

The Stereodynamics Conference has a history of success, starting from 1986 in Jerusalem (Israel). Since then, there has been a conference every other year: 1988 in Bad Honnef (Germany), 1990 in Santa Cruz (USA), 1992 in Assisi (Italy), 1994 in Gif sur Yvette (France), 1996 in Bielefeld (Germany), 1998 in Leeds (United Kingdom), 2000 in Escorial (Spain), 2002 in Schoorl (Netherlands), 2004 in Osaka (Japan), 2006 in Arcachon (France), 2008 in Dalian (China), 2010 in San Cruz (USA), 2012 in Paris (France), 2014 in St. Petersburg (Russia), and 2016 in Taipei (Taiwan).

The 2018 edition of Stereodynamics Conference will be held in the Waldhotel Arosa,  Switzerland, from 2.-7. September 2018.

The conference seeks to unravel the most fundamental, directional aspects of chemical reaction, energy transfer, and photodynamics studied at the molecular level. We hope to bring together researchers performing cutting-edge experimental/theoretical studies in:

  • Orientation and alignment
  • Photon, atomic and molecular polarization
  • Chirality and steric effect
  • Reaction dynamics in gas phase
  • Reaction dynamics in condensed phase and at interface
  • Dynamics in photodissociation/photoionization
  • Ultrafast photochemistry and real time dynamics
  • Cold molecules and related phenomena

The conference features Bernstein Award lecture, invited lectures, hot topics,  poster sessions, and sufficient opportunities for discussion. The hot topics will be selected from the posters submitted.
