This is the announcement for the 33. Symposium on Surface Science (3S*20), which will take place at the Bundes Ski Akademy St. Christoph in St. Anton am Arlberg, Austria, from Sunday, March 1st to Saturday, March 7th, 2020.


The topics of 3S*20 will include all aspects of surface science, including, but not limited to

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

The scientific program will include about 30 - 40 oral presentations (20 minutes talks including discussion), to be selected from the submitted extended abstracts. 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 authors will have the opportunity to orally present highlights of their work as a “2-minute commercial”.
