ICSFS 18: International Conference on Solid Films and Surfaces


The International Conference on Solid Films and Surfaces (ICSFS) has taken place since 1978, gathering an increasing number of scientists from all over the world. The 18th edition, which will take place in Chemnitz (Germany) from August 28th to September 2th 2016, follows the previous meetings held in Tokyo (1978), Washington (1981), Sydney (1984), Hamamatsu (1987), Providence (1989), Paris (1992), Hsinchu (1994), Osaka (1996), Copenhagen (1998), Princeton (2000), Marseille (2002), Hamamatsu (2004), Bariloche (2006), Dublin (2008), Beijng (2010), Genoa (2012), and Rio (2014).

ICSFS 18 in Chemnitz will focus on recent advances in controlling and characterizing the physical and chemical properties of films and surfaces, with a particular emphasis on materials for electronic, photonic and spintronic applications, in addition to bio-functionalized structures and devices ICSFS is strongly interdisciplinary, covering also nano and nano-bio science and technology and metrology, wherever surfaces are involved in the future devices.
