The scientific program of this international symposium emphasizes current hot topics in the field of chemical kinetics and dynamics. These include experimental and theoretical studies on chemical reactions of atoms, molecules, clusters, and surfaces with various projectiles such as photons, electrons, and ions. The aim is to promote the growth and exchange of scientific information on these areas of natural sciences.


June 6 (Wed) - 8 (Fri), 2018
