Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the “Workshop on Physics and Chemistry of Solid/Liquid Interfaces for Energy Conversion and Storage”, taking place at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste, on 25-29 May 2020.

The purpose of the Workshop is to bring together scientists working on the characterization of electrochemical interfaces at the atomistic level, and developing characterization methods, to discuss developments, current challenges and perspectives. The workshop is dedicated to the characterization of electrochemical interfaces by means of advanced experimental and theoretical techniques. The focus will be on the understanding at atomic level of interface structure and stability, charge dynamics and charge transfer, chemical adsorption and reactivity. Space will be devoted to advances in interface-sensitive characterization techniques. Consequences of the progress in the field will be discussed in the context of applications to catalysis, energy conversion and storage, and environmental remediation.

•    Atomic structure of electrochemical interfaces
•    Charge dynamics and charge transfer
•    Electrochemical reactions at interfaces
•    Interface-sensitive experimental techniques
•    Computer simulations of electrochemical interfaces

Applicants should submit a title and abstract for a poster to be presented at the workshop. A limited number of abstracts will be considered as contributed talks. The deadline for submission is February 25, 2020.

Abstract submissions and applications for participation can be made through the ICTP website at: http://indico.ictp.it/event/9092/
