Subject: 19.06.01 International Symposium on Quantum Effects in Chemistry and Biology, Shanghai, China
June 1-3, 2019, Shanghai, China

Quantum mechanical effects, e.g., zero-point energy, tunneling, delocalization of nuclei, 
and quantization of molecular degrees of freedom, play a crucial role in chemical and 
biological systems. This is becoming increasingly recognized owing to recent theoretical 
developments that have greatly expanded the size and complexity of systems amenable 
to rigorous quantum treatment,  and new experimental methods capable of probing the 
fingerprints of quantum effects with unprecedented spatial, energy, and temporal 
resolution. The influence of quantum mechanics is ubiquitous and far reaching, both in 
the gas phase and condensed matter, governing the electronic structure, and thereby 
potential energy surfaces, of a system, as well as the distribution and dynamics of nuclei, 
with biological relevance in enzyme reactions, and technological importance in energy 
conversion and storage materials, among many other examples. 

The primary goal of the International Symposium on Quantum Effects in Chemistry and 
Biology is to provide a platform for scientific exchange and collaboration between leading 
international scholars working on the frontiers of this vibrant and rapidly evolving field, 
and thus help advance cutting-edge research in an emerging scientific area that critically 
impacts society.  The symposium will also provide an excellent learning experience for 
attending young scholars and graduate students. The Symposium is sponsored by the 
NYU-ECNU Center for Computational Chemistry at NYU Shanghai.
