International Conference on Molecular Ultrafast Science and Technology

Grindelwald, Switzerland

Due to COVID-19 and the resulting constraints on travel and meetings MUST2020 will be postponed by 1 year. The new dates for the conference (now MUST2021) are 12-16 September 2021

MUST2021 is organized by the NCCR MUST, a Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research


The scientific sessions of MUST2021 consist of plenaries, invited and contributed talks and poster sessions. The meeting will start on Sunday evening September 12, 2021 and run to Thursday noon, September 16. MUST2021 will be held in the Sunstar Hotel and Congress Hall, Grindelwald, in the Bernese Alps in Switzerland at the foot of the Jungfrau mountain massive. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Grindelwald!
MUST2021 is sponsored by the Swiss National Competence Center in Research on Molecular Ultrafast Science and Technology (NCCR MUST), an interdisciplinary research program launched by the Swiss National Science Foundation in 2010. The NCCR MUST brings together Swiss research groups working in Ultrafast Science Themes across the fields of physics, chemistry, material science and biology.
