ISTANBUL

17th Quantum Reactive Scattering Workshop


Welcome to QRS 2024 - 17th Quantum Reactive Scattering Workshop, hosted in the enchanting city of Istanbul. On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we extend a heartfelt welcome to all participants. As we gather in Istanbul, a city renowned for its rich history and the captivating fusion of Asia and Europe, we invite you to embark on a journey that seamlessly blends academic excellence with cultural immersion.
QRS 2024 serves as a robust platform for exploring diverse facets of computational chemistry. It continues the tradition of academic excellence initiated by David Clary in 1990 while adding a new chapter to its global journey. Since its inception in Cambridge in 1990, this prestigious event has been a hub for cutting-edge research, spanning the globe to serve scholars and scientists. It has revisited the United Kingdom with editions in Nottingham (1995) and Cambridge (2007) and traveled to the United States for engagements in cities such as Cambridge, Massachusetts (1994), Telluride, Colorado (1997), Pasadena, California (2001), and Santa Cruz, California (2005). Europe has also played host with memorable editions in locations like Perugia, Italy (1999), San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Spain (2003), Bordeaux, France (2013), and Balatonföldvár, Hungary (2022). Asia joined the lineup with editions in Dalian, China (2009) and Saitama, Japan (2019). Now, for the first time, this esteemed event is poised to grace Türkiye, infusing new geographical and cultural dimensions into its distinguished legacy.
The Yıldız Campus, our chosen venue, stands as an integral part of the illustrious Yıldız Palace, acknowledged as a UNESCO World Heritage site. With its origins dating back to 1880, the Yıldız Palace assumed a central role in Türkiye's history, particularly between 1876 and 1908, serving as a key administrative hub following the iconic Topkapı Palace and Dolmabahçe Palace. Our profound gratitude is extended to the Yıldız Technical University Rectorate for their cordial hospitality and exceptional stewardship in hosting QRS 2024.
We eagerly look forward to your participation in QRS 2024, to be held in the vibrant city of Istanbul. Join us for an unforgettable QRS experience, marked by pioneering scientific discussions, productive collaborations, and captivating social events.

    17:05 - 17:30 Discussion and Decision Meeting: Next QRS

    During this meeting, our focus will be on deliberating and ultimately determining both the venue and the individual(s) responsible for orchestrating the upcoming QRS.

    17:30 - 17:50 Lightning Talks from Poster Presenters

    We will be listening to 3-minute talks from poster presenters just before the poster session. The aim is to rev up our engines...

    17:50 - 20:30 Poster Session

    We will continue with scientific discussions in front of the posters. But don't worry, there's no need for anyone to search for a restaurant for dinner. Beverages, snacks, and most importantly, gözleme will be available to enjoy during the discussions in front of the posters.
