36th European Conference on Surface Science ECOSS 36

36th European Conference on Surface Science ECOSS 36

Dear colleagues,
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 36th European Conference on Surface Science (ECOSS 36) which will be held 28 Aug ‐ 1 Sep 2023 in Lodz, Poland, organized by the University of Lodz.

ECOSS is a well‐established annual meeting directed jointly by the Surface Science Division of the International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique and Applications (IUVSTA) and the Surface and Interface Section of the European Physical Society (EPS).

The conference provides an excellent opportunity for scientists from Europe and from all over the world to meet and discuss the latest advances in the physics and chemistry of surfaces. Furthermore, it is a forum to discuss the progress of surface science in related innovation fields such as heterogeneous catalysis, organic molecular nano‐architectures, two‐dimensional materials and graphene, nanoelectronics, bio nanoscience and functional and energy materials studied both using theoretical and experimental methods. For more information and further updates, please visit the conference website.

We invite you to join us in ECOSS‐36 in Lodz next year and discuss the latest surface science advances!
Pawel Kowalczyk,
Chairperson of ECOSS‐36

Fuerzas y Túnel FyT2023 conference

Fuerzas y Túnel FyT2023 conference

The Fuerzas y Túnel (FyTconference is a biannual symposium whose purpose is to bring together the national and international scientific community to discuss the latest advances in scanning probe microscopy (SPM). The great versatility of SPM makes it a fundamental technique in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, with applications in a wide range of research fields, from materials science to virology. In this conference, we will focus on the use and development of SPMs for the study of materials (from the atomic level up to the nanoscale), the understanding of different phenomena (electronic, optical, magnetic, mechanical) in the most diverse conditions (from ultra-high vacuum to liquid media). All together will allow the development of materials with novel properties that aim to solve different social challenges.

FyT 2023 will be held at Fundación Rei Afonso Henriques in Zamora from 3 to 5 July 2023. Beyond scientific excellence, this event will also mark 20+ years since the first FyT conference in its present format.

A series of talks from reknown speakers will cover hot topics of atomic force microscopy, scanning tunneling microscopy and scanning probe theory.

We invite you to join us in FyT 2023 in Zamora to learn the latest advances of the field of scanning probes and gather with the Spanish SPM community, while enjoying an incomparable natural landscape.

Materials Physics Center (CFM, CSIC-UPV/EHU) in Donostia-San Sebastián, (the Basque Country, Spain) is currently seeking for bright, highly motivated PhD candidates who are willing to work in an intellectually stimulating environment to develop cutting-edge training and research on Materials Science, exploring physical and chemical properties of advanced materials, nanostructures and nanodevices, either theoretically or experimentally. They will have access to the most advanced techniques in the field and develop industry-transferable skills.

Approximately 25 applicants will be shortlisted for online interviews in June. In the interviews, the candidates will have the opportunity to discuss the research projects with the supervisors of the different projects and/or the Evaluation Committee.
From the interviews, 4 candidates will be selected and granted full studentships.

CFM is focused in the following research areas:

RIVA XII – Iberian Vacuum Conference

RIVA XII – Iberian Vacuum Conference

La reunión Ibérica de Vacío y Aplicaciones, RIVA, es un encuentro bienal conjunto de la Sociedad Española del Vacío (ASEVA) y la Sociedad Portuguesa del Vacío (SOPORVAC), y sigue la serie iniciada en Braga, Portugal, en 1988, cambiando alternativamente la ubicación entre Portugal y España. SOPORVAC organizará la próxima edición de RIVA XII en Braga, Portugal, durante los días 16 y 17 de mayo de 2022, en el Vila Galé Collection Hotel.
El evento es de gran relevancia en campos científicos relacionados con la ciencia e ingeniería de superficies, biointerfaces, ciencia del plasma, tecnologías de procesamiento de materiales que involucran equipos de vacío, como películas delgadas, nanoestructuras, entre otros fundamentos y aplicaciones en la tecnología de la ciencia del vacío. Esperamos contar con un gran número de delegados de Portugal y España, así como de otros países.

El registro ya está abierto en el sitio web de RIVA XII:
