Electron and/or proton transfer processes are ubiquitous, and play key roles in catalysis, energy conversion, biological respiration and signaling, to name a few. Clear mechanistic understanding and quantitative description of these processes require development of new concepts at fundamental level as well as accurate methods of quantum calculation in complex environments. This workshop brings experts offering cutting edge advances in these areas and new ideas for the next level of development.

Sharon Hammes-Schiffer Proton-coupled electron transfer in catalysis & energy conversion
Pengfei (Frank) Huo Quantum dynamical simulations of proton-coupled electron transfer reactions
Alexei Stuchebrukhov Electron transfer in respiratory complex 1
Dmitry Matyushov Protein electron transfer: Noergodic sampling, FDT violation, and solvent dynamical effect
