Save the date for the Simulation Meets Molecular Spectroscopy (SiMol) Meeting, 30 Oct – 1 Nov 2023.




This year's Molecular Spectroscopy User Meeting will take on a slightly different format, as we incorporate a special focus, making the most of simulation and neutron spectroscopy data together. We aim to answer the following: “How simulation can aid the interpretation of neutron spectroscopy measurements and how neutron spectroscopy data help simulations".  The event is scheduled to take place at Milton Hill House from 30 October - 1​ November. A draft schedule is available below​. This venue is close to the ISIS site, with good public transport links. Accommodation will be provided for all who require it and reasonable travel expenses for UK based attendees reimbursed.

If you would like to register for the meeting, please complete the registration form. The abstract submission deadline is 14 July and the registration deadline 25 July.

We especially welcome members of the simulation community to attend, to hear about the potential opportunities of working closely with neutron experimentalist. We will showcase successful examples in a number of science areasand we will host a mixer session where we will aim to pair simulators and experimentalists with similar research interests. 

There will be a chance for poster presentations for senior academics and PhD students, as well as a breadth of presentations ranging across themes of Catalysis, Energy Materials and Soft Matter. 

Current invited speakers include:
​Gerald Kneller, Université d'Orléans
Richard Catlow, University College London
Simone Meloni, University of Ferrara
Maria-Paula Marques, University of Coimbra
