Spin states: a real problem (?)

From 18 to 21 September 2012 took place the CECAM/ESF Workshop on Spin states in biochemistry and inorganic chemistry at the Z-Cam center in Zaragoza (Spain). This meeting joined experimentalists and theoreticians working in the field, who gave wonderful presentations of their work, but also led to lively discussions of not only successes, but also drawbacks, challenges and state-of-the-art studies.

On 18th December 2012 the workshop appeared in Nature Chemistry, within the News & Views section (written by Miquel Costas and Jeremy Harvey, thanks!!):

"Spin states: Discussion of an open problem", M. Costas, J.N. Harvey, Nature Chem.2013, 5, 7-9

The workshop has now also been highlighted in RSEQ's Anales de QuĂ­mica (Noticias, p. 70). (Update3: Link address restored to new location)

More pictures of the workshop can be found in an earlier post.

The workshop is also mentioned in a Perspective in International Journal of Quantum Chemistry that I've been asked to …
