Organized by: Emilio Cocinero (Universidad del País Vasco), Gang Feng (Chongqing University), Daniel Obenchain (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen)

This will be a forum to compare computational data sets to experimental results, and discuss the quality and methods employed. All levels of computational comparisons are encouraged to contribute. Predict, compare, present! Invited Speakers: Taija Fischer (The University of Göttingen), Brian Esselman (The University of Wisconsin, Madison), Qian Gou (Chongqing University), Lan Cheng (Johns Hopkins University)


Organized by: Kelvin Lee (MIT), Daniel Tabor (Texas A&M University)

This mini-symposium will focus on the development and application of the rapidly advancing field of machine learning to spectroscopic problems, with a diverse set of practitioners (experimental and theoretical) and applications. Invited Speakers: Heather Kulik (MIT), Thomas Markland (Stanford University), Andrés Montoya-Castillo (University of Colorado Boulder), Steven Shipman (New College of Florida), Andrew White (University of Rochester)


Organized by: David Osborn (Sandia National Lab), Krupa Ramasesha (Sandia National Lab), Timothy Zwier (Sandia National Lab)

This mini-symposium brings together researchers in the fascinating area at the interface between spectroscopy and dynamics, in which frequency domain and time-domain experimental measurements can work in concert with advances in theory to uncover the unique signatures of dynamical events over a wide range of timescales. The symposium will highlight recent advances in experimental and theoretical methods that open up unprecedented timescales, wavelength regions, or non-linear techniques to spectroscopically probe chemical dynamics. Contributions are also encouraged from those that use spectroscopy to probe dynamics in the highly informative microwave, infrared, and optical regimes. Invited Speakers: Randall Goldsmith (University of Wisconsin, Madison), Steve Leone (UC-Berkeley), Melanie Reber (University of Georgia), Dave Townsend (Heriot-Watt University)
