TRVS is a biennial international conference that gathers experts in the field of time-resolved vibrational spectroscopy. It is the premier meeting for learning about and discussing the latest advances in the field. The history of TRVS traces back to 1982 when the first meeting was held in Lake Placid, USA. After the second meeting in 1985, TRVS has been regularly held every two years in the USA, Europe, and Japan. TRVS 2013 was held in Beppu Japan and organized by Tahei Tahara. Some of the topics covered in this 2015 meeting will be:

Time-resolved vibrational spectroscopy in molecular biophysics and photobiology

Proton and electron transfer studies for energy conversion and storage

Dynamics of liquids, solids, interfaces, and nanostructured materials

Chemical, vibrational, and hydrogen bonding dynamics

Topics in multi-dimensional vibrational spectroscopy

Theoretical and computational spectroscopy

Advances in femtosecond stimulated Raman scattering

The scientific session of TRVS consists of invited talks, contributed talks, and poster presentations. Abstracts will be accepted for contributed and poster presentations.
