The goal of this symposium is to highlight the quality and breadth of spectroscopy in the southeast. This includes any research that uses spectroscopic techniques to elucidate molecular structure or dynamics. Both ultrafast spectroscopy and frequency-resolved spectroscopy will be represented.

We have both invited talks and contributed talks. If you would like to be considered for a contributed talk, please select the "spectroscopy and dynamics" symposium when submitting your abstract through the SERMACS website:
