Preliminary Announcement

This is the announcement for the 29. Symposium on Surface Science (3S*16), which will take place at the Bundes Ski Akademy St. Christoph in St. Anton am Arlberg, Austria from Sunday, February 21st to Saturday, Februar 27th, 2016.


The topics of 3S*16 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”.

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 have only 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 small. All registration will be done strictly on a first come - first serve basis. The symposium will start in the evening of Sunday, February 21, 2016. You should therefore plan to arrive on Sunday afternoon the latest. However, arrival on Saturday, February 20, 2016 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 evening. Departure is on Saturday, Februar 27, 2016 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 during 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
