Physical chemists from the US and around the world gathered at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, California, for the 64th meeting of the Pacific Conference on Spectroscopy and Dynamics (PCSD) from January 19-22, 2017. The technical advancements presented spanned the spectrum from fundamental theory to applied spectroscopy, and the investigations covered a broad range of systems including, such as single molecules, gaseous clusters, aerosols, condensed-phase molecules, ionic liquids, thin films, nanomaterials, and biomolecules. With the common goal to more precisely understand the nature and dynamics of molecules and ensembles through spectroscopy, everyone contributed to a rich and insightful meeting this year at Asilomar.
