This is the second announcement of the CECAM school on “New Computational Methods for Attosecond Molecular Processes” that will take place in Zaragoza, Spain, on May 21-25, 2018.
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 4 practical sessions in the computer lab. The speakers participating in this training will be: Alberto Castro (BIFI, Zaragoza), Mikhail Ivanov (Max Born Institute, Berlin), Fernando Martín (Autonomous University of Madrid), Alicia Palacios (Autonomous University of Madrid), Serguei Patchkovskii (Max Born Institute, Berlin), Ángel Rubio (Max Planck Institute SD, Hamburg), Armin Scrinzi (Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich), and Olga Smirnova (Max Born Institute, Berlin).
Registration to the school is free and is now open until April 13, 2018 at:
A few scholarships will be available to support accommodation in Zaragoza. If you are interested, you must indicate it during registration including the names of two scientists who could give references.
