This one-day workshop brings together experts pursing other paradigms for chemical dynamics focused on three main themes: new algorithms and computing platforms (neural networks, machine learning, quantum simulation), alternative theoretical methodologies (quantum-semiclassical, kinetic theories), and nonstandard mechanisms and effects (roaming, geometric phase, external field control).
The meeting will roughly run from 1:30pm Friday to 1:00pm Saturday, with a poster session Friday evening. Participation will be limited to ~30 attendees and there is no registration fee. Inquires can be addressed to Phillip Stancil (firstname.lastname@example.org).
