A preliminary version of our Workshop programme is online - please select relevant link (see list on the left side). - - - DEADLINE FOR REQUESTING PARTICIPATION EXPIRED ON 31 MARCH 2017. - - - In the last years there has been a tremendous progress in the investigation of dynamics of photoinduced electronic excitation in real materials, mainly thanks to developments in experimental techniques, like ultrafast spectroscopy, and in theoretical methods, like many-body perturbation theory and time-dependent density functional theory. Processes of interest include photoabsorption, exciton dynamics, and charge transfer. These issues are of interest for fundamental research, but are also relevant for applications in photovoltaics, optoelectronics, and photocatalysis. Leading experts on both theoretical and experimental research of dynamics of photoinduced electronic excitations will discuss developments and future directions in understanding such dynamics, and its dependence on the materials properties.
