Workshop on Future Prospects for Macromolecular Dynamics on 4th Generation Light Sources
26th and 27th January 2007
I would like to invite you to participate in the above Macromolecular Dynamics workshop. Speakers include:
Sanford Asher (University of Pittsburgh, USA)
Francois Haché (École Polytechnique, France)
David Klug (Imperial College, UK)
Kevin Kubarych (University of Michigan, USA)
Martin Volk (University of Liverpool, UK)
Jon Waltho (University of Sheffield, UK)
Luuk van Wilderen (Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, The Netherlands)
The meeting will be held on 26th and 27th January 2007 at The Park Royal Hotel, Stretton, United Kingdom <http://www.qhotels.co.uk/hotels/cheshire/the_park_royal/>. There will be a registration fee of £50 per delegate, which includes one night of accommodation at the Park Royal Hotel, refreshments, and meals.

The 4th Generation Light Source (4GLS) will provide extremely bright sources of radiation covering the spectrum from soft X-ray to terahertz. 4GLS will use devices such as free electron lasers to provide laser radiation in regions of the spectrum not accessible to conventional lasers. It will provide very short pulses of radiation at high repetition rates and will allow the combination of sources for pump-probe type experiments.
One of the major applications of 4GLS will be the study of very fast dynamics in macromolecules; the aim of the meeting is to bring together the potential user community to hear presentations from world leaders in this area of science. There will be a series of presentations and also discussion sessions to allow the exchange of ideas and develop proposals for future experiments. The meeting will cover a range of spectroscopic techniques for investigating the dynamics of macromolecules in the sub-picosecond to microsecond time domain, including polarization methods (CD, TRORD), resonance raman, infrared, optical absorption, and 2D spectroscopy methods.
