On Monday evening (March 17), a hosted symposium reception and dinner is planned. Please save the date!

A little insight goes a long way: a transformative role of theory in spectroscopy and chemical dynamics
              "The purpose of computing is insight, not numbers"... R.W. Hamming

The symposium will highlight a transformative role that theory plays in modern research by making bold predictions, guiding the design of new experiments, and enabling insightful interpretation of experimental observations. The focus of the symposium will be on the theories and computational approaches connecting experimental observations to the underlying interactions between atoms and molecules developed by Prof. Benny Gerber and his colleagues, collaborators, students, and post docs. The topics will cover a broad range of experimental and theoretical physical chemistry including atmospheric processes, novel rare gas containing compound, new spectroscopic approaches, and more.

Please see the confirmed speakers list. Some contributed papers submitted by October 7th (submission link http://abstracts.acs.org) will be chosen for oral presentations; contributions not selected for oral presentations will be assigned to the poster session.

Physical chemistry student poster awards

Several awards with monetary prizes will be awarded for posters presented by students at the Physical Chemistry Poster Session on Wednesday evening of the meeting, March 19th, 2014. To be eligible for the awards, the presenting author must be a graduate or undergraduate student at the time of the poster presentation. Poster presenters will be contacted by e-mail and invited to declare their eligibility (student status) and desire to participate in the student poster award competition.
