Preliminary Announcement

This is the announcement for the 25. Symposium on Surface Science (3S*12), which will take place at the Bundes Ski Akademie St. Christoph in St. Anton am Arlberg, Austria from Sunday March 11th to Saturday March 17th, 2012


The topics of 3S*12 will include all aspects of surface science as, e.g.

  • Surface structure
  • Surface reactions
  • Particle-surface interactions
  • Epitaxial growth
  • Adsorption and desorption
  • Applications of surface science

These fields will be covered by about 30 - 40 oral presentations (20 minutes talks including discussion), to be selected from the submitted contributions. All other contributions will be presented as posters. Poster boards are 180 cm high and 90 cm wide. Poster sessions will be preceded by poster introductions, where the authors will have the opportunity to orally present highlights of their work as a “2 minute commercial”.


St.Antonam Arlberg

Bundes Ski Academy All participants

All participants will be accommodated in the Bundes Ski Academy St. Christoph am Arlberg next to St. Anton am Arlberg (Austria) in single and two-bed rooms (all with shower/bath, WC and TV). We only have a certain limited number of rooms at our disposal and therefore urge you to fill out the online-registration form as soon as possible. If possible please indicate a room-mate, with whom you would like to share your room. The number of single rooms is rather small. All registration will be done strictly on a first come - first serve basis. The Symposium will start in the evening of Sunday, March 11, 2012. You should therefore plan to arrive on Sunday afternoon the latest. However, arrival on Saturday March 10, 2012 is possible for an additional fee. Upon registration, you will receive the conference proceedings together with the final program. Full board starts on Sunday evening with dinner. The scientific program runs from Sunday evening to Friday in the evening. Departure is on Saturday, March 17, 2012 after breakfast. In addition to the scientific program, an important purpose of this symposium is to enable informal contacts during daily skiing activities. Therefore, lectures, poster introductions and poster presentations will take place in the morning and evening hours. A typical day schedule of this symposium will be as follows:

07:30 Breakfast
08:00 - 10:00 Lectures
10:00 - 15:00 Skiing instructions (and Lunch)
15:30 - 18:30 Lectures and/or poster introductions
18:30 Dinner
19:30 - 22:00 Lectures and/or posters
22:00 more discussions


Contributions to the conference proceedings (2 page extended abstracts maximum) are expected to arrive no later than December 31, 2011 and should be submitted electronically. For paper preparation and submission follow the instructions on our Abstract submission page.

Euro 1150.- for participants sharing a double room with another participant
Euro 140.- additional fee for arrival on Saturday, March 10, 2012 (accommodation and full board)
