Important notice
The ISSS-9 meeting will be held by the combination of on-site meeting in Takamatsu, Japan and online (partially live and mostly on-demand) presentations on November 28 to December 2, 2021 and the abstraction submission page has been re-opened. Participants who cannot come to the venue also join the on-demand (recorded) presentations for the whole oral presentation papers. We expect face-to-face communication in ISSS-9, but the situation regarding the global pandemic is still ambiguous, and we will continue monitoring impacts of COVID-19 on the style of our meeting.

We would appreciate your understanding and are looking forward to seeing you in Takamatsu, Japan.

ISSS-9 Steering Committee

Welcome to the web site of ISSS-9!
The 9th International Symposium on Surface Science (ISSS-9) will be held from November 15 to 19, 2020 November 28 to December 2, 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.
