In 2018, the ETSF Young Researchers’ Meeting took place in Hamburg, Germany. The hottest summer in the history of Hamburg, the well prepared Center for Free Electron Laser Science (CFEL) and more than sixty motivated researcher built the perfect frame
for a stimulating week full of science.
The Young Researchers’ Meeting (YRM) of the European Theoretical Spectroscopy Facility (ETSF) is an annual conference organized and attended exclusively by researchers without permanent position that work on state-of-the-art theoretical and computational methods for the study of electronic and optical properties of materials.
YRM is the place to present your work in progress, come up with new ideas and learn about others’ work in a friendly and open atmosphere. Master students, PhD students as well as young post-docs from all over Europe came together and discussed latest
advances in their fields. This year, talks at the YRM were 20 minutes, including 5 minutes of discussion. This gave everyone enough time to communicate his or her findings and receive feedback from other participants.

In 2017, the ETSF Young Researchers’ Meeting made its way to Tarragona, Spain for the first time. Sunny weather, great food, a beautiful old city and the kind hosts at the Catalan Institute for Chemical Research (ICIQ) provided a fantastic setting for a week of science that will stay in our memory.
The Young Researchers’ Meeting (YRM) of the European Theoretical Spectroscopy Facility (ETSF) is a workshop organised by young researchers for young researchers. Every year, postdocs, PhD students and Master students gather from all over Europe to discuss problems and recent advances in theoretical and computational methods for the study of the electronic and optical properties of materials. The YRM is where you can present your work in progress, float new ideas, and learn from others at your own level – both scientifically and personally. Talks at the YRM are 25 minutes, which gives you enough time to introduce your topic, what you did and, crucially, how you did it. Each session starts with an introductory keynote that provides an overview of the field, introduces the theoretical framework and points out open questions.
