Each year, the Surface and Interface Days (JSI) highlight advances in the field of physics and chemistry of surfaces and interfaces. The themes covered range from the structure and morphology of surfaces and interfaces to their electronic, electrical, magnetic, mechanical or optical properties. Due to the importance of surfaces and interfaces in nanostructures, nanoscience naturally has a special place in this conference.
The scientific program of the conference is structured around fifteen invited conferences during which proven experts in the field present the state of the art and recent developments in their discipline. Conference participants also have the opportunity to present their work during a poster session. These days are therefore an opportunity to bring the French-speaking community together around these themes. We hope that the discussions will be fruitful and lead to new collaborations and perspectives.
The 36th edition is organized in Grenoble, from January 24 to 26, 2024.
On Surface Synthesis 2024
Sant Feliu de Guíxols, Spain
On-surface synthesis, a surface-supported variation of organic chemistry most commonly performed under vacuum, unites the easy tunability of molecular materials and the promises of self-assembly as a revolutionary production method, with the sturdiness of covalently bonded structures. This most attractive combination is drawing the interest of a rapidly increasing number of researchers. Important efforts are being devoted to augment the available on-surface synthesis toolbox, to improve our understanding of the chemical reaction mechanisms, to the synthesis and characterization of new molecular architectures, as well as to their implementation in diverse applications.
Because this approach bridges across the fields of chemistry, physics and materials science, further involving engineering for the integration of these molecular materials in actual devices, the aim of this fifth edition of the "On-Surface Synthesis" international workshop (following OSS14 in Les Houches, OSS16 in San Sebastian, as well as OSS18 and OSS22 in Sant Feliu de Guíxols) is to bring together researchers working in this field from different perspectives, theory and experiment, as well as with chemical, physical and/or application-oriented viewpoints.
