About the Symposium:

The symposium focuses on understanding the electronic and nuclear quantum effects in complex molecular systems, liquids, materials, and biomolecules. From unraveling nonadiabatic transition between multiple potential energy surfaces in photoinduced processes to elucidating the impact of nuclear tunneling and zero-point energy, quantum effects emerge as pivotal factors in these complex systems. The challenge to simulate quantum dynamics in large, disordered, and warm systems has motivated the development of new tools to accurately describe many-body interactions and quantum dynamics on the atomistic level. Through theoretical and computational approaches, efforts will be directed towards modeling quantum dynamical phenomena in realistic scenarios such as spectroscopy of condensed-phase matter, photochemical reactions in biological chromophores, and electronic energy transfer in photovoltaic devices. The symposium offers a cutting-edge platform for international scholars working in the vibrant and rapidly evolving field, fostering collaboration and innovation. The gathering of outstanding scholars will cultivate novel ideas and methodologies for tackling complex challenges. It also provides excellent learning experiences for young scholars and graduate students. The symposium is co-sponsored by the Editorial Office of the Chinese Journal of Chemical Physics and NYU-ECNU Center for Computational Chemistry at NYU Shanghai.
