Due to recent advances in ultrafast optical spectroscopies, quantum processes in molecular systems, ranging from small molecules to biological systems and functional materials, are amenable to study in unprecedented detail. This opens a unique opportunity of interaction between experiment and theory, to achieve an improved understanding of nonequilibrium phenomena guided by the interplay of quantum coherence and environmental effects. Against this background, the goal of this workshop is to bring together a group of leading spectroscopists and theorists, to address state-of-the-art methodology in the study of elementary energy and charge transfer phenomena in condensed phases and spatially extended systems. Some focus will be placed upon the scope, limitations, and novel developments in (i) nonlinear optical techniques and (ii) quantum and mixed quantum-classical simulation techniques as applied to condensed-phase systems, biological chromophores and light-harvesting systems, and nanostructured materials.
IMPORTANT: Participants should note that the workshop runs Saturday through Wednesday. Because of the Bluegrass Festival that starts on Thursday (17th), discounted lodging rates are not available on Wednesday night. If your flight is on Thursday out of Montrose, we recommend having dinner in Telluride on Wednesday night and taking Telluride Express to Montrose after dinner. TSRC scientists are eligible for the corporate rate ($119 + tax) at the Hampton Inn (970-547-4120) next to the airport. The Holiday Inn Express is also a good option too although we do not have a discount with them.
The registration price includes five breakfasts, three lunches, a BBQ picnic, and a group dinner at Floradora restaurant.
Registration fee includes two lunches.
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.
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, Aha School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on TSRC's website. Feel free to contact TSRC's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
Workshop Price: $ 501.00
Early Bird Lodging Discount Available Until: 01/15/2021
A $100.00 discount is applied to your lodging cost when you register before 01/15/2021.
All cancelled registrations are subject to a $100 Cancellation Fee. TSRC can only guarantee a refund for the balance of fees and lodging charges paid when a refund is requested prior to the Cancellation Deadline that is specific to each workshop, which in this case is 05/12/2021. TSRC always recommends that participants purchase travel insurance to protect against unforeseen, last-minute travel plan changes.
