SDMC-2020

Alberto Lesarri gave a plenary talk at the Spectroscopy and Dynamics of Molecules and Clusters (SDMC-2020) Conference, which took place the last February 20-23 in Kumbhalgarh (Rajasthan, India). The Conference was jointly organized by Indian Institute of Technology (IIT, Jodhpur)Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS, Pilani)Malaviya National Institute of Technology (Jaipur)Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (Pune), and National Chemical Laboratory (Pune). The Conference was very dynamical, providing a great opportunity for scientific exchange. This was the first and probably the last Conference this year following the COVID-19 outbreak.


Summer conferences

Our group participated in several conferences this Summer. Marcos Juanes attended the 74 International Symposium on Molecular Spectroscopy (ISMS) at the University of Illinois last June 17-21, presenting three oral talks. Alberto Lesarri gave oral talks at the 18 European Symposium on Gas-Phase Electron Diffraction (ESGED18) in Hirschegg (Austria), the Iberian Joint Meeting on Atomic and Molecular Physics (IBER2019) in Évora (Portugal) and the XXXVII Biannual Meeting of the Spanish Physics Society (Bienal Física 2019) in Zaragoza (Spain).

The IBER2019 conference is the biannual meeting of the Portuguese (SPF) and Spanish (RSEF) Physics Society. The event is coorganized by the SPF and the Division of Atomic and Molecular Physics (GEFAM) of the RSEF. This year the event remembered the GEFAM founder Prof. Gerardo Delgado-Barrio (CSIC), who passed away in 2018.

Our group organized the last 25th International Conference on High Resolution Molecular Spectroscopy in collaboration with the University of the Basque Country. The Conference gathered about 270 participants and six companies, combining 126 oral talks and posters. Marcos Juanes and Rizalina Tama Saragi presented two oral talks and two posters. The conference included a talk by the Nobel laureate Dudley Herschbach, who received the “Miguel Catalán” medal of the Group of Atomic and Molecular Physics (GEFAM) of the Spanish Chemistry (RSEQ) and Physics (RSEF) societies. The next Conference will be organized in Prague in 2020.

Bunsentagung 2018

Category : Conferences Group News

Marcos Juanes and Alberto Lesarri attended last May 10-12 the 117th Bunsentagung 2018 in Hannover, the annual conference of the Deutsche Bunsen-Gesellschaft or Bunsen society of Physical Chemistry. The Conference has been running since 1894. Alberto gave a hot topic talk and Marcos presented two posters. Several contributions to the Conference appeared in a special themed issue of PCCP “Kinetics in the real world“. The opening conference talk by Prof. James G. Anderson, with dramatic data on climate change and human health is freely available from PCCP.

HRMS-2017

Category : Conferences

Marcos Juanes attended the XXVth Colloquium on High-Resolution Molecular Spectroscopy (“Dijon Colloquiums“) organized by the University of Helsinki during August 21-25th, 2017. Marcos presented two posters: A comparison of water clusters in furfuryl mercaptan and furfuryl alcohol and a structural study of diphenyldisulfide. The first day of the conference Prof. Caminati was offered with the two special issues of Journal of Molecular Spectroscopy edited by Grabow, Lesarri and Melandri. The 2018 International Conference on High Resolution Molecular Spectroscopy (“Prague Conferences“) will be organized next September 3-7, 2018, in Bilbao, chaired by Alberto Lesarri and Emilio Cocinero.


Prague meeting 2016

Category : Conferences

Prof. Stepan Urban and his group at the University of Chemistry and Technology of Prague (VSCHT) organized the 2016 edition of the International Conference on High Resolution Molecular Spectroscopy from August 30 to September 3, 2016. Plenary talks included contributions from Cristobal Pérez (now in Schnell‘s group at Hamburg), José L. Alonso and Tim Zwier. The special Ioannes Marcus Marci Session was given by Prof. Richard N. Zare. The next Conference will be organized jointly by the University of Valladolid and the University of Basque country in Bilbao in 2018, with Alberto Lesarri and Emilio J. Cocinero as chairmen.

Urbana meeting 2016

Category : Conferences

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign organized the 71st edition of the International Symposium on Molecular Spectroscopy, chaired by Prof. Ben McCall. The meeting attracts the most active people and groups in the world doing high resolution molecular spectroscopy. This year several Spanish groups contributed to the meeting, including a plenary talk by Pepe Cernicharo (the meeting program and many presentations are available). Alberto participated with two communications.
