The world of quantum chemistry meets in Heidelberg


9th Molecular Quantum Mechanics Conference (MQM 2019)

The Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung organizes a major international conference in the field of physical chemistry in summer 2019, bringing together researchers from all over the world in Heidelberg.

Banner MQM

The 9th Molecular Quantum Mechanics Conference (MQM 2019) is expected to attract around 400 scientists and students from all over the world, as well as industry representatives who would like to know more out about the state of the art in quantum chemistry.

Therefore, special attention is paid to new methodological developments which open up future perspectives for chemistry and the related fields of biochemistry, pharmacy and material sciences.

The "Molecular Quantum Mechanics" conference series has been held every three years in various countries since 2001 and traditionally honors the scientific achievements of leading scientists in the field, most of whom were born in the host country.

The MQM 2019 in Germany will be held in honor of Prof. Werner Kutzelnigg, Prof. Wilfried Meyer and Prof. Sigrid Peyerimhoff, and in memory of Prof. Reinhart Ahlrichs.

All of these four outstanding scientists have made seminal contributions to the field of electronic structure theory, in particular to the understanding of electron correlation phenomena and in the development of new and powerful approximation methods in this area.

The conference focusses on theoretical chemistry, mainly wave function theory, and consists of around 60 lectures by internationally renowned researchers, two poster exhibitions, and four historical presentations.

Abstract submission and registration is open now until March 31st.

9th Molecular Quantum Mechanics Conference (MQM 2019)

Im Focus: Regensburg physicists watch electron transfer in a single molecule

For the first time, an international team of scientists based in Regensburg, Germany, has recorded the orbitals of single molecules in different charge states in a novel type of microscopy. The research findings are published under the title “Mapping orbital changes upon electron transfer with tunneling microscopy on insulators” in the prestigious journal “Nature”.

The building blocks of matter surrounding us are atoms and molecules. The properties of that matter, however, are often not set by these building blocks...

Im Focus: University of Konstanz gains new insights into the recent development of the human immune system

Scientists at the University of Konstanz identify fierce competition between the human immune system and bacterial pathogens

Cell biologists from the University of Konstanz shed light on a recent evolutionary process in the human immune system and publish their findings in the...

Im Focus: Transformation through Light

Laser physicists have taken snapshots of carbon molecules C₆₀ showing how they transform in intense infrared light

When carbon molecules C₆₀ are exposed to an intense infrared light, they change their ball-like structure to a more elongated version. This has now been...

Im Focus: Famous “sandpile model” shown to move like a traveling sand dune

Researchers at IST Austria find new property of important physical model. Results published in PNAS

The so-called Abelian sandpile model has been studied by scientists for more than 30 years to better understand a physical phenomenon called self-organized...

Im Focus: Cryo-force spectroscopy reveals the mechanical properties of DNA components

Physicists from the University of Basel have developed a new method to examine the elasticity and binding properties of DNA molecules on a surface at extremely low temperatures. With a combination of cryo-force spectroscopy and computer simulations, they were able to show that DNA molecules behave like a chain of small coil springs. The researchers reported their findings in Nature Communications.

DNA is not only a popular research topic because it contains the blueprint for life – it can also be used to produce tiny components for technical applications.
