Welcome to the iCOMET 2019

The international Conference on Molecular Energy Transfer in Complex Systems (iCOMET 2019) will be held in Hefei, China, on September 22-27, 2019. Hefei is the capital city of Anhui province in east China. It has a history of more than 2000 years,and it is now a newly emerging industrial city and an important transportation hub in the area. Hefei is also well known for science and education. One of the three national science centers is located in Hefei.

The scope of iCOMET is to provide a forum for researchers investigating complex dynamical problems such as reaction dynamics, molecular interactions at surfaces and in the condensed phase, biological molecules and technology applications.

Welcome to the iCOMET 2019 conference! We look forward to seeing you in Hefei in September.


• Chemical reaction dynamics

• Advances in theoretical chemistry

• Photo-fragmentation dynamics

• Dynamics at surfaces

• Cold collisions and clusters

• Non-covalent bonding in biological systems

• Ultrafast dynamics

• Electronically nonadiabatic phenomena

• Energy conversion processes

• Elementary processes in heterogeneous catalysis
