ICTAC 2022

From 06/13/2022 to 06/17/2022

Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon - 15 parvis René Descartes, 69007 Lyon


Dear participants, dear colleagues,

The organizing committee cordially invites you to join us for the 18th edition of the International Conference on Theoretical Aspects of Catalysis (ICTAC).

This series of biennial conferences started in 1986 in Lyon, France, and was hosted since then by several European cities and universities including Zakopane (Poland) in 2002 & 2016, Berlin (Germany) in 2006, Varna (Bulgaria) in 2008, Vlissingen (The Netherlands) 2012, London (UK) in 2014, but also recently by Asian and North-American countries with Matsuchima (Japan) in 2010 and Los Angeles (USA) in 2018. This edition chaired by Dr Carine Michel will be organized in Lyon, France on June 13th-June 17th 2022, twenty two years after the last French edition, which occurred at la Colle-Sur-Loup, in the nearby of Nice, in 2000.
The conference will be devoted mainly to recent advances in theory and modeling in catalysis, with a few selected presentations related to experiment in this research domain. Since its beginning, ICTAC aims to bring together young, confirmed and senior scientists from different communities including heterogeneous catalysis, electrocatalysis, photo-catalysis, homogeneous catalysis, and enzymatic catalysis, in an effort to promote exchange and collaboration between theoreticians but also with experimentalists.
A special care will furthermore be given to theoretical developments, concerning electronic structure theory, statistical mechanics, multiscale approaches and machine learning which pave the way to the modelling of complex catalytic systems in ever more realistic conditions.

In this 20th anniversary edition, invited lectures of high-caliber researchers will compose the scientific program together with a significant number of contributed talks and poster presentations.
