Announcement and Covid-19 Info

After careful considerations, we have decided to try organizing the 34. Symposium on Surface Science (3S*22) from Sunday, March 13th to Saturday, March 19th, 2022 as a face-to-face meeting at the (Bundes) Ski Austria Akademy St. Christoph in St. Anton am Arlberg, Austria.

According to the information we have received, skiing in Austria will be possible again this winter, but under special Covid-19 related safety precautions. As the exact official requirements can change very quickly, we have decided to exercise utmost caution! We therefore ask for your understanding that we will only allow fully vaccinated participants to participate in the 3S*22 meeting. You will have to show your official EU Digital COVID Vaccination Certificate (QR code or foreign equivalent) upon registration and there will be no exceptions.

We have done our best to offer generous cancellation conditions (see below) and hope that you are as eager as we to meet friends and colleagues again face-to-face.


The topics of 3S*22 will include all aspects of surface science, including, but not limited to

  • Surface structure
  • Reactions and dynamics at surfaces
  • Particle-surface interactions
  • Epitaxial growth
  • Adsorption and desorption
  • Applied surface and interface science
  • Heterostructures

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”.


St.Antonam Arlberg

Ski Austria Academy

All participants will be accommodated in the Ski Austria Academy St. Christoph am Arlberg close to St. Anton am Arlberg (Austria) in single and two-bed rooms (all with shower/bath, WC and TV). We have only a 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 (another participant), with whom you would like to share your room. Accompanying persons are possible, but will have to pay the full fee. The number of single rooms is small. Please note that you need to confirm their availability by e-mail to F. Aumayr [email address: lastname @ this server · enable javascript to see it]. All registrations will be handled strictly on a first come - first serve basis. The symposium will start in the evening of Sunday, March 13, 2022. You should therefore plan to arrive on Sunday afternoon the latest. However, arrival on Saturday, March 12, 2022 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, March 19, 2022 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 symposium day will have the following format:

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 Discussions


Contributions to the conference proceedings (extended abstracts, 2 page maximum) are to be submitted no later than December 31, 2021 and should be sent electronically. For preparation and submission follow the instructions on our Abstract submission page.

Euro 1400.- for a regular participant sharing a double room with another paying participant
