QRS 2017

XIV INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP on quantum reactive scattering

QRS XIV will be hosted by the ICCSA 2017 conference in Trieste from July 3rd to 6th, 2017

This workshop series started in 1990 as an informal gathering of theoreticians interested in the quantum description of reactive scattering processes. The organization of this edition of the workshop, initially planned to take place in Elazig (Turkey), was carried out by N. Bulut and collaborators and moved to Trieste with the same dates.
