The 9th International Symposium on Surface Science (ISSS-9) will be held from November 15 to 19, 2020 November 28 to December 1, 2021 in Takamatsu, Kagawa, Japan. This symposium is the 9th in a series of international symposia organized by The Japan Society of Vacuum and Surface Science (JVSS). The symposium will highlight recent achievements in surface science and its related fields. Because the properties and functionalities of the materials under external environments are mainly ruled by "surfaces and interfaces", surface science plays an essential role in wide sectors. Discussion on the above mentioned major topics with interdisciplinary studies as the future directions of the fields are strongly encouraged.

Important notice
As we announced on this web site, we have been prepared the ISSS-9 meeting as a hybrid of on-site and online, expecting face-to-face communication as much as possible. We appreciate close to 400 abstracts' submission. The acceptance notice has just been sent.

But considering the still continuing COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to
hold the ISSS-9 as an online-meeting.

Oral presentations are expected to be performed at real time (or on-demand (recorded) if requested). Poster presentations are requested to present at real time through the breakout sessions of zoom. The detail instructions of the presentations and the program will be announced on the website before the end of this month.

We would appreciate your understanding and contribution to the conference.
