Summer School 2016 Physical Methods in Molecular and Heterogeneous Catalysis September 18th - September 25th 2016 http://cec.mpg.de/workshops/summerschool2016/ The synergy of electronic structure theory and spectroscopic methods is transforming modern chemistry, enabling cutting-edge research across all fields of molecular science. Our highly successful series of summer schools on Molecular Theory and Spectroscopy has specifically addressed the connection between spectroscopic techniques and quantum chemical methods for the study of molecular systems. This unified approach will be again central in the 2016 edition of our summer school. This year, however, we also expand the content of our program in an effort to bridge the historic divide between homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis. In the 4th edition of our summer school, which is scheduled for September 18th to 25th 2016 at the Science Park (Wissenschaftspark) of Gelsenkirchen, Germany, experts from the molecular and the heterogeneous areas of catalysis research will teach on physical methods that are used for the study and characterization of both molecular and heterogeneous systems. By combining these historically distinct areas under a single program, we aim to help the students develop an appreciation of the common physical principles and to encourage a unified view of analytical methods in catalysis. Intended audience The school brings together an unusually broad coverage of topics and is addressed to graduate students, post-doctoral scientists and researchers who want to acquire a wider perspective and a deeper insight on physical principles and analytical methods that encompass both molecular and heterogeneous approaches to catalytic transformations. A special focal point of the school relates to theoretical methods and their use in the prediction of spectroscopic observables and in understanding the local electronic structure of chemical complexes and materials. Format The summer school will consist of lectures by top researchers on various types of physical methods such as spectroscopy (EPR, optical, IR/Raman, XAS/XES, MÃ¶ssbauer), electrochemistry and microscopy, as well as on introductory aspects of theoretical chemistry, ligand field theory, magnetism, photocatalysis, kinetics and reactivity. Lectures will be followed by practical sessions with computational exercises. Depending on individual interests, the participants may choose to attend optional special interest lectures on selected advanced topics of spectroscopic or computational techniques. A poster session will give the opportunity to discuss current research with the lecturers and other participants in the context of the summer school. Keynote lectures We are delighted to announce that Prof. Anders Nilsson (University of Stockholm) will deliver the keynote lecture at the opening of the 2016 summer school.NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
