Workshop Details
Vibrational Dynamics
07/08/2019 - 07/12/2019
Meeting Description:

Vibrational Dynamics is a repeating workshop devoted to understanding vibrational energy in molecules that provides a meeting place for gas-phase and condensed phase communities to discuss problems of mutual interest. Advances in understanding intramolecular vibrational relaxation, quantum control of vibrational energy, intermolecular energy transfer and dissipation, and the multiple roles of vibrational energy in chemical and biochemical reactions are all topics for discussion. Participants consist of a roughly equal mixture of experimentalists and theoretical researchers with physical chemistry or physics backgrounds.


The registration fee includes five breakfasts, a catered lunch on Monday, and a Wednesday night picnic.

We wish to ensure an intimate workshop setting, with no more than 20 to 25 participants. If you are interested in attending, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer before registering. If you have registered for a meeting you were not invited to, you may be subject to a $100 fee.

TSRC is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop.

Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Ah Haa School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on TSRC's website at Please contact Cindy Fusting at for more information.
