Highlighted Symposia

Highlighted Symposium in Computational Spectroscopy

High precision calculations of molecular

energy levels and spectra

The calculation of energy levels at a precision of 0.1 mEv or better presents a significant challenge for all but the simplest molecular systems, and it requires advanced numerical methodology. The results of such calculations are necessary in a variety of applications. One area of application is to assist the experimentalist in the search for, and assignment of, irregular spectra such as that of exotic fluxional molecules and of molecules exhibiting extreme breakdown of the Born-Oppenheimer approximation. Other important applications would allow the accurate spectroscopic measurement of the extent of the breakdown of parity and time reversal symmetry, and the positive determination of the temporal variation of fundamental molecular constants such as the ratio of the electron to proton mass.



Special Symposia

Special Symposium in Honour of

Professor Bernard Kirtman


This symposium is organized in honour of Bernie KIRTMAN, a scientist who has contributed substantially to several domains of theoretical chemistry, encompassing perturbation theory, ro-vibrational Hamiltonians, nonlinear optics of oligomers and other pi-conjugated systems, surface modelling, vibrational hyperpolarizabilities, band structure calculations, and search of better exchange-correlation functionals for treating extended systems in electric fields. The work of Bernie Kirtman has had strong impact on the previous ICCMSE conferences and has been presented at most of those conferences, either by Bernie Kirtman in person or by some of his many collaborators. This symposium will therefore address these different, though intertwined, topics by inviting his collaborators as well as other key scientists in the field.

Symposium 4


Title: Modeling the climate system: computational and theoretical challenges

Organizers: Prof. Dr. Valerio Lucarini, Department of Physics, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy

E-mail: Enquiries and contributions to lucarini@alum.mit.edu    

Scope and Topics: Whereas ever increasing computer power allows for simulating present and future climate conditions with models of higher and higher complexity, relatively little attention has been paid to defining rigorously robust metrics for models validation. A great leap forward in this direction has recently been the provision of the outputs of a large pool of “standardized” climate model runs in public servers thanks to EU and US projects. On a different perspective, recent theoretical advances have provided new general tools for the rigorous analysis of the dynamics of nonlinear deterministic and stochastic systems. Contributions belonging to the following sub-topics may be especially relevant for opening a discussion on what a “good” climate model actually is.



Global balances of mass, angular momentum, energy, entropy in state-of-the-art and simplified climate models;


Applications of ideas and methods of the dynamical system and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics theory to investigate climate response to forcings and climate fluctuations;


Systematic exploration of model reduction procedures obtained through, e.g., separation of slow and fast manifolds and through exploitation of scaling relations;


Impacts of the introduction of stochastic components to the evolution equations considered in the models;


Impact of changes in the resolution on the local and global statistical properties of the simulated climate; non-standard discretisation techniques;


Upscaling, downscaling and filling the gaps in space-time climate fields: from observations to models and vice-versa;


Turbulence vs. waves in large-scale geophysical flows.

We will present results of theoretical simulations of experimental tunnelling splittings observed in spectra of hydrogen-bonded systems. Behaviour of water clusters as basic elements present in nature will be analyzed. Spectra of large assemblies of water, such as ice clusters and their surface properties will be simulated by quantum and model calculations.

Title: Natural gas hydrates, a future climate bomb or a valuable source of energy? Opportunities and challenges for the computational physics community

Organizers: Professor Dr. Bjorn Kvamme, Department of Physics and Technology, University of Bergen, Allegt. 55, N-5007 Bergen, Norway, Phone: (+47)55580000/(+47)55583310, Fax (Dept. of Physics) : (+47)55589440, Fax (My office) : (+47)55583380

E-mail: Enquiries and contributions to bjorn.kvamme@ift.uib.no, kvamme.bjorn@bluezone.no       

Scope and Topics:


A changing climate, with potential 5 degrees increase within the next century, will lead to increasing destabilisation of natural gas hydrates around the world. The physical understanding of these reservoirs in terms of the non-equilibrium states, and different phase transitions which generate new hydrate as well as phase transitions which leads to dissociation requires multi-scale modelling approaches. Molecular dysnamics simulations can provide physical and thermodynamic properties for the individual phases as well as for the interfaces between. These simulations also provide detailed information on a limited scale but the simulations have to be linked to other conepts which are able to simulate dynamics of simultaenous and competing phase transitions on levels up to micro-scale. Examples of this type of approach is illustrated through the use of Phase Field Theory. The different levels in the modelling is discussed in detail and a final example on conversion of methane hydrate over to carbon dioxide hydrate is compared to fundamental experimental data.

E-mail: Enquiries and contributions to alarcon@gri.msstate.edu        

Scope and Topics:


The modeling and simulation of water resources phenomena is changing rapidly. Recent developments in information technology, remote sensing, and data collection technologies have changed the paradigms under which hydrological, water quality, and hydrodynamic modeling is done. Rapid changes in natural and human environments, mathematical and computational capabilities, and global phenomena (such as climate change) require special approaches from conceptual models and numerical techniques, up to results
visualization and dissemination.

This session intends to provide an up-to-date account of modeling and simulation strategies in the field of water resources currently undergoing throughout the world.

Symposium 9


Title: Ab initio and classical molecular dynamics simulations in molecular medicine and drug design

Organizers: Professor Dr. Paolo Carloni, International School for Advanced Studies and INFM Democritos, Via Beirut 2-4 34100 Trieste, Italy

E-mail: Enquiries and contributions to carloni@sissa.it          

Scope and Topics:


The Symposium will deal with molecular modeling of biological systems. Emphasis will be given to applications of quantum chemical methods to molecular medicine. These are increasingly faster and accurate, becoming a valuable tool in the search for active substances. These methods help study inhibitor binding, identifying the surface load of active substances or deriving molecular descriptors. In particular, density functional theory (DFT)-based molecular dynamics (MD) simulations hybrid molecular mechanics schemes have recently emerged as a powerful tool to provide structural and spectroscopic information on novel anticancer drugs that target DNA as well as to lead to mechanistic hypotheses for a variety of enzymes of pharmacological relevance. Recent advances that increase the accuracy of DFT and the efficiency of investigating rare events are further expanding the domain of applications of DFT/MD to medicinal chemistry.

Scope and Topics:


"Graphene" – a new carbonaceous material – is distinguished from conventional electronic systems such as  graphite due to its exceptional features, e.g., a large magnetic moment around the zigzag edges and massless Dirac fermion, stimulating development of future electronic/spintronic devices. Several unique features of graphene are closely connected with the "open-shell character", which originates in the "instability of chemical bonds" in π-conjugated system with unconventional spin states and strongly correlates with the topology of π-electron array, especially aromatic sextet formation. This symposium focuses on recent hot topics regarding unique physical and chemical properties derived from pseudo and real spins in π-conjugated compounds, toward collaboration between theory, computational modeling and experiment. A wide range of compounds from small conjugated/aromatic molecules and inorganic metal complexes to nano- and large-size graphenes will be covered, and origin of the open-shell character as well as functional properties such as electron conductivity, optical and magnetic properties will be concentrated as important domains in the symposium.

Organizers: Dr. Philippe Carbonniere and Prof. Claude Pouchan, IPREM, Institut Pluridisciplinaire en Environnement et Materiaux, Groupe de Chimie Theorique, Technopole d’Helioparc, Universite de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour, Pau, France, Prof. Mauro Causa', Dipartimento di Chimica "Paolo Corradini", Universita' degli Studi di Napoli Federico II, Via Cintia, 80126 Napoli, Italia 

E-mail: Enquiries and contributions to philippe.carbonniere@univ-pau.fr, claude.pouchan@univ-pau.frmauro.causa@unina.it

Scope and Topics:


Vibrational spectroscopy is a particularly powerful tool for non-destructive characterisation of molecular systems. Besides routine analysis in a wide range of domains (food science, archaeology, astrophysics, medicine), numerous applications in molecular science, such as speciation, conformational analysis, molecular design and reactivity monitoring, can be based on the modelling of vibrational effects.

In recent years computational chemistry provides powerful tools for the modelling of such properties in the gas, liquid and solid phase although anharmonicity, resonances, environmental and dynamic effects render the problem non-trivial.

Several computational aspects will be emphasised in the present symposium: the quality of the potential electronic surface, time-dependent and time-independent approaches to the study of vibration, the treatment of the condensed phases (solvent, surfaces and bulk), the computation of intensities and possible ways to overcome actual limitations due to the size of the treated systems.

The performance of modern methods will be critically reviewed and their relative merit.
