he XVIth International Conference on Time-Resolved Vibrational
Spectroscopy (TRVS 2013) will be held in Beppu, Oita, Japan in 2013. TRVS is a
forum for discussing the latest developments in research utilizing time-resolved
vibrational spectroscopy, with the aim of elucidating the structure and dynamics
of molecular systems. TRVS is considered to be the most important conference in
this field. TRVS has been held twice in Japan, Tokyo in 1991 and Okazaki in
2001, and this is the third TRVS held in Asia.
