The 1st Annual Meeting of the MD-GAS (Molecular Dynamics in the GAS-phase) COST Action will take place from the 18th February to the 21st February 2020, at GANIL Guesthouse, Caen, France.
Note that there will be no registration fee. However, to obtain a permission to enter on the GANIL campus (Large Heavy Ion National Accelerator) and to guarantee an optimal service to all the attendants, we encourage you to register on the website before 31st January 2020. Due to the room capacity, the meeting attendance is limited to 80 participants. Therefore, the registration is done on “first come, first served” basis.
The conference website (https://md-gas.sciencesconf.org) includes all information related to the registration, travel, accommodation, and abstract submission. The list of invited speakers is also posted on the conference website.
Registration deadline: 31st January 2020
Deadline for abstract submission: 31st January 2020
Short description of the MD-GAS COST Action:
Emerging highly advanced ion-beam traps and storage rings combined with synchrotrons, X-ray facilities, and high performance computers offer completely new ways to study Molecular Dynamics in the GAS phase (MD-GAS). Cryogenic traps and rings will allow studies of decay and reaction processes involving molecular ions in well-defined conformations and in single or narrow ranges of quantum states. The MD-GAS COST Action aims to further develop and fully exploit the exceptional potential of the above range of tools to unravel the connection between the initial energy transfer in interactions between isolated molecules or clusters and photons, electrons, or heavy particles (ions, atoms, molecules) and the related molecular dynamics in unexplored time domains ranging from sub-femtoseconds to minutes and hours. Furthermore, the Action aims to identify reaction mechanisms and routes that lead to the growth of new molecular species, clusters and aerosols. The new knowledge will be important for fundamental atomic and molecular physics, chemical physics, and for applications in radiation therapy and -damage on the nanoscale, astrochemistry, astrobiology, atmospheric science, and climate research.
