ECOSS: European Conference on Surface Science

ECOSS, the 30th European Conference on Surface Science, will be taking place on 31 August – 05 September 2014. The conference venue is the Kervansaray Lara Convention Centre in Antalya on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey.

The event will include talks and poster sessions, with prizes for the best presentations, as well as a gala dinner. The talks and posters will cover a comprehensive range of surface science topics including polymer surfaces, chirality, nanoparticles, electrochemistry, electronic and optical properties of surface structures, nanomaterials, thin carbon layers and graphene, ultra-thin films, semiconductors, tribology and many more.

The full programme is available on the ECOSS conference website.

Registration has now closed.
