Registration to the COST / ZCAM school on “New Computational Methods for Attosecond Molecular Processes” that will take place in Zaragoza, Spain, from March 28th to April 1st, 2022 is now open at

Registration is free. Due to space limitations, the number of accepted attendants is limited, so reserve your place as soon as possible. Registration deadline: 16 February 2022. You will receive confirmation of acceptance/non-acceptance for attendance within the next week after registration closes.

The purpose of this school is to introduce state-of-the-art ab-initio, hybrid and TDDFT numerical methods that can cope with ultra-fast dynamics in the electronic continuum of molecules, with an emphasis on unbound states in strong-fields and on the need to go beyond single-active-electron models to properly account for electron correlation. The course is directed to advanced master students, PhD students and young post-doctoral researchers in theoretical atomic and molecular physics, theoretical chemistry, quantum optics and applied mathematics, with an interest in using and developing new computational tools for the description of attosecond electron dynamics in systems of chemical interest. The school will be organized in 5 theoretical sessions and 5 practical sessions in the computer lab. The speakers participating in this training will be: Alberto Castro (BIFI, Zaragoza), Jesús González-Vázquez (Autonomous University of Madrid), Mikhail Ivanov (Max Born Institute, Berlin), Fernando Martín (Autonomous University of Madrid), Felipe Morales (Max Born Institute, Berlin), Alicia Palacios (Autonomous University of Madrid), Serguei Patchkovskii (Max Born Institute, Berlin), Armin Scrinzi (Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich), and Olga Smirnova (Max Born Institute, Berlin). A detailed program can be found at

Cheap accommodation at university facilities may be available upon request (

This school is co-organised by the COST Action AttoChem (CA18222) and ZCAM, at ZCAM premises.

AttoChem Action ( is supported by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology),  AttoChem COST network participants might request support to partially cover their attendance to the school, explicitly indicating “financial support requested” in the registration form. Participants will be informed about eligibility and reimbursement conditions once the registration is closed.
