The possibilities to perform theoretical studies of excited states in molecular systems have undergone a revolutionary development during the last ten years. New methods have been developed and have been used in a large variety of applications. As a result today it is possible to perform accurate quantum chemical studies of the properties of excited states for a large variety of molecular systems ranging from organic molecules to transition metal complexes and biochemical systems. This development has created substantial interaction between theoretical chemists and experimental groups in electronic spectroscopy, photochemistry, magnetism, etc. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers from both experimental and theoretical field and both from academia and industry. This will permit the interchange of information about the new developments in the field of excited states and their possibilities in different areas of electronic spectroscopy and photochemistry.
The conference will cover the following topics:
- New theoretical methods for the study of excited states;
- Spectroscopy and magnetic properties in organic and in coordination chemistry;
- Spectroscopy and magnetic properties of solids;
- Mechanisms of photochemical reactions;
- Spectroscopy and photochemistry in bio-organic molecules Contributions by invited speakers will cover these aspects. Poster sessions will be organized to allow the effective participation of all people attending the conference.
