Harrogate, Yorks, UK, 17 – 21 June 2024

17th European Vacuum Conference (EVC-17) & 37th European Conference On Surface Science (ECOSS-37)

We are pleased to invite you to participate in this joint European conference which brings together:

17th European Vacuum Conference (EVC-17)

37th European Conference on Surface Science (ECOSS-37)

13th Vacuum Symposium UK (VS-13)

RGA User’s meeting

Endorsed by the International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique and Applications (IUVSTA) and the British Vacuum Council (BVC), and organised by the Institute of Physics (IOP).

The conference provides scientists, researchers and engineers from across Europe, and working in academia, national labs and industry, the opportunity to meet and discuss the latest advances in the physics and chemistry of surfaces as well as their industrial application. 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.

This five-day event will bring together leading experts, scientists and engineers at all stages of their careers and research students for a series of presentations and discussions in the following broad thematic areas covering all IUVSTA topics:

Applied Surface Science

Bio Interfaces

Electronic Materials & Processes

Nanometer Structures

Plasma Science and Techniques

Surface Engineering

Surface Science

Thin Films

Vacuum Science and Technology

The regular sessions will be supported with a series of training events and courses delivered by experts in their fields. Furthermore, Vacuum Symposium UK will provide a series of traditional Short Courses.

In addition, there will be a trade exhibition during the conference, supported by manufacturer led presentations and discussions.
