9th APXPS Workshop

9th Annual Ambient Pressure X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy Workshop

From December 6th, 2022 Until December 9th, 2022

FHNW/Paul Scherrer Institute




The international workshop on ambient pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy is organized annually by a large facility (synchrotron/national laboratory) hosting such a technique. The workshop brings together academic staff, researchers and students to discuss the application and development of ambient pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy in a wide variety of scientific topics including catalysis, electrochemistry, materials science, and environmental science. The workshop is also open to scientists making use of other in situ/operando techniques and working in the field of theoretical calculations. The main goals are to highlight new scientific discoveries, discuss about technical upgrades and foster the discussion among research facilities making use of in situ/operando techniques.

The workshop features talks from plenary and invited speakers as well as from contributed speakers, a poster session, and a technical discussion session. Participants have the opportunity to share and learn about the latest scientific discoveries, technical developments of APXPS instrumentation, and discuss the future directions in the field.

This year the workshop will be hosted by the Paul Scherrer Institute, at the University of Applied Sciences in Windisch, Switzerland.

48th Conference on the Physics and Chemistry of Surfaces and Interfaces

From January 15th, 2023 Until January 19th, 2023

Sonesta Redondo Beach & Marina

Redondo Beach, California


The annual PCSI conference is devoted to achieving a fundamental understanding of the physical, chemical, biological, structural, optical, magnetic, and electrical properties of surfaces and interfaces. These studies include novel growth processes and interfacial phenomena, new characterization tools, transport, and functionality of the structures for future devices.

Generous amounts of discussion time will be included in the program in order to emphasize the workshop character and to stimulate the exchange of new ideas.

Chemical Reactions at Surfaces - GRC

Reactions at Surface Active Sites: From Single Atoms and 2D Materials to Electrified Interfaces

From February 12th, 2023 Until February 17th, 2023

Lucca (Barga), LU, Italy

The Chemical Reactions at Surfaces GRC is a premier, international scientific conference focused on advancing the frontiers of science through the presentation of cutting-edge and unpublished research, prioritizing time for discussion after each talk and fostering informal interactions among scientists of all career stages. The conference program includes a diverse range of speakers and discussion leaders from institutions and organizations worldwide, concentrating on the latest developments in the field. The conference is five days long and held in a remote location to increase the sense of camaraderie and create scientific communities, with lasting collaborations and friendships. In addition to premier talks, the conference has designated time for poster sessions from individuals of all career stages, and afternoon free time and communal meals allow for informal networking opportunities with leaders in the field.

The conference will assemble an interdisciplinary group of world-class experts with background in chemistry, chemical engineering, physics and materials science to present on and discuss fundamental aspects of surface and interface chemistry, relevant to a wide range of technological challenges. Thematic topics include: reactions at single crystal model surfaces, state-of-the-art theoretical methods unraveling fundamental mechanistic insights at the molecular level, reactions at electrified interfaces relevant to applications for energy production and storage, such as fuel cells and batteries. In addition, the latest developments in advanced surface characterization methods, including in-situ spectroscopies and microscopies will be highlighted by world-leaders in the field.
