The Third International Workshop “Spectroscopy and Dynamics of Ozone and Related Atmospheric Species” will be held in Reims, France from October 4th to October 6th 2017, in the conference hall of the Hotel « De La Paix ».
The Workshop is organized by the « Groupe de Spectroscopie Moléculaire et Atmosphérique» (GSMA) laboratory of the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne and the « Centre National de Recherche Scientifique » (CNRS, UMR 7331).

Scientific Board
Vladimir Tyuterev (coordinator)
Alain Barbe, Alain Campargue, Iouli Gordon, Richard Dawes, Pascal Honvault, Christof Janssen, Johannes Orphal, Agnes Perrin, Viatcheslav Kokoouline, Semen Mikhailenko, Maud Rotger, Peter Szalay.

Local Organizing Committee

and the GSMA spectroscopy team.
All the correspondence concerning the abstracts of contributions, arrival and registration should be sent to the local coordinator at:

Scientific program / topics
Contributions will take the form of oral presentations and will cover the following topics:
- Laboratory measurements ( IR , MW, UV ranges ) and spectral analyses of ozone and of
molecules involved in the ozone atmospheric cycle, of trace and greenhouse gases in the
Earth and planetary atmospheres;
- Electronic structure calculations, potential-energy, dipole moment surfaces and non-adiabatic effects in ozone and related species;
- Theoretical models for describing high-energy rovibrational states;
- Dynamics of molecular formation, decomposition, and photodissociation;
- Isotopic and symmetry effects in ozone and related species;
- Chemical reactivity along the ozone cycle, in situ atmospheric balloon and satellite measurements;
- Databases related to spectroscopy and dynamics.

Conference venue
All the Workshop sessions will take place at the conference facilities of the Hotel « De La Paix »,Best-Western-Hotel-De-La-Paix,93385)
located in the centre of Reims, France.

Accommodation / arrival / departure
The format of this small Workshop as well as the capacity of the hotel conference hall allow for a limited number of participants (max. 50). Hotel booking has to be done by the participants themselves: a wide choice of hotels is available in the centre of Reims (see links below).;
The Workshop program is planned to start on October 4th at noon and close on October 6th in the afternoon.

Deadline for abstracts submission:
Abstract submission deadline is extended to September 16-th. Proposals for the email address list, requests for the participation and the abstracts (maximum 1 page) in *.pdf , and *.tex or *.doc format are to be submitted to:
The abstract book will be available in electronic format.

Format of the workshop
