3rd International Symposium
on Surface Imaging/Spectroscopy
at the Solid/Liquid Interface

Main topics

1. Application of SPM techniques in studies of surfaces modified by metal oxides, semiconductors, polymers, colloids and nano-sized catalysts
2. High resolution imaging of clusters, biomolecules and biological systems
3. Advanced experimental techniques for in-situ characterization of electrochemical nano-sized materials
4. Fundamental comparison of experimental and theoretical results

Plenary lecturers

R. Schloegl, FHI, Germany
A. Wieckowski, University of Illinois, USA

Workshops and poster sessions

Two workshops: Future of fuel cells (keynote lecture: R. Adzic, BNL, USA) and Nanoparticles at surfaces (key-note lecture: Z. Adamczyk, ICSC, Poland) as well as two poster sessions are planned.
