Conference Introduction

Welcome to FEMTO 14!

We are pleased to announce The 14th Femtochemistry Conference (FEMTO 14) - Dynamics of the Complexity in Chemistry, Biology, and Physics - which will take place in Shanghai, China from July 28 to August 2, 2019. The venue is at the Jin Jiang Grand Hall of Jin Jiang Hotel in the center of Shanghai city.

FEMTO 14 will celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the Nobel Prize to Femtochemistry in memory of the late Nobel Laureate Ahmed H. Zewail. The conference will bring together scientists from all over the world to present and discuss the most recent advances in understanding the dynamics of the complexity using ultrafast photons and electrons, including various complex processes in chemistry, biology, materials, and physics with contributions from both theory and experiment.

The series of biennial FEMTO meetings started in 1993 and the first conference was held in Berlin, Germany. Therefore, FEMTO 14 builds on the rich history of previous Femtochemistry meetings.
