We are pleased to announce the MOLEC Scientific Highlights online workshop, taking place from the 25th to the 26th of August 2020, from 14:00 to 17:00 CEST (Hamburg time).

Registration is free and it is now open at this link until the 23rd of August 2020.

The aim of this workshop is to highlight the most recent advances in molecular physics. In particular, this MOLEC Scientific Highlights online workshop stems from the desire to foster scientific discussions on the most important breakthroughs regarding the topics of the MOLEC conference.
