You are warmly invited to join us in Sheffield in April 2020. This Faraday Division joint interest group conference is the second in the series, the first in 2017 being a big success, it is set to be a highlight for the physical chemistry community in 2020 - and you can be a part of it.
 
The first meeting of this conference series was held in Warwick in 2017, and we are excited to bring the second edition to Sheffield. 
 
Organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry and their Faraday Division, this meeting will host some of the leading physical chemistry researchers from the UK. It promises to be a great forum for researchers to network with and build strong collaborations within their community and related disciplines.

I look forward to welcoming you to Sheffield on behalf of the Scientific Committee.
 
Anthony Meijer, University of Sheffield
Scientific Chair

Grants for Carers

Grants for carers have been introduced following the Royal Society of Chemistry Breaking the barriers report where 78% of chemists working in UK academia felt that managing parenting and/or caring responsibilities has an impact on women’s retention and progression. This fund is not limited to women scientists and welcomes applications from anyone with caring responsibilities, for more information please refer to the ‘bursaries’ section on this page.

Themes

The programme will explore various aspects of physical chemistry:

Advances in materials
Current advancement of materials suitable for solving global challenges in the area of energy generation and storage, materials for information technology and materials for environment

Biophysics and imaging
Advanced imaging techniques for understanding biology

Chemistry at cold temperatures
Study of molecules and reactions at cold to ultracold temperatures. From rate measurements to formation of ultra-cold molecules

Chemistry at surfaces
Investigation of chemistry on surfaces including catalysis, photocatalysis and thin films

Excited state processes
Developing experimental and computational probes of light-induced chemical dynamics and reactivity

Machine learning methods in material property prediction
Recent developments in the application of machine-learning tools to predict and interrogate the properties of molecules, liquids and solids

Magnetic Materials
Investigations of magnetic and spintronic materials using theory and experiments focusing on analysis and new generation applications

Neutron spectroscopy and allied techniques
Neutron spectroscopy and related techniques, such as IR, Raman and NMR, highlighting current status and future perspectives

Next-generation quantum chemical methods: From development to applications
Recent developments in quantum chemical methods for calculating the properties of molecules, liquids and solids. Applications to model important chemical systems such as catalysts, batteries and enzymes

Observational Astrochemistry
Using observations to find evidence molecules in space. These can be obtained using both space and terrestial telescopes

Photocatalysis
Theory and applications. Understanding how photocatalysts, be it molecular or solid, can accelerate or initiate chemical reactions when illuminated, including the discovery of new photocatalysts and new photocatalysed reactions

Photophysics of functional and solar cell materials
Light-induced processes in materials ranging from photoactive proteins to transition metal oxides, perovskites, nanoparticles and organic semiconductors with applications in artificial photosynthesis, solar cells and devices

Simulation and Modelling of astrochemical and atmospheric processes
Chemical networks, large scale modelling

Structure of Molecules
Developments in the determination of electronic and geometric structure of molecules and intermolecular interactions using spectroscopic and computational methods
