Upcoming events

Registrations are open for the CECAM/Psi-k Flagship workshop:
"Atto2Nano: modeling ultrafast dynamics across timescales in condensed matter
Our workshop will bring together researchers from different areas of theoretical and experimental ultrafast science, focusing on time-scales ranging from attoseconds to nanoseconds. In particular, this event aims at stimulating discussions and exchange on bridging time-scales in both ab initio and model approaches for non-equilibrium phenomena.

Attendance of the workshop is free and we welcome submissions of abstracts for contributed talks and posters. More information about the event can be found at the conference website:
