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.



2023 MRS Spring

2023 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit

From April 10th, 2023 Until April 14th, 2023

San Francisco, California


Time and time again, multidisciplinary research is touted as essential to innovation. That is why, from April 10-14, 2023, researchers working in seemingly unrelated fields will gather in San Francisco to promote, share and discuss issues and developments across disciplines. The virtual portion of the 2023 MRS Spring Meeting will be held from April 25-27, 2023. 

The 2023 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit is the key forum to present research to an interdisciplinary and international audience. It provides a window on the future of materials science, and offers an opportunity for researchers—from students and postdoctoral fellows, to Nobel and Kavli Prize Laureates—to exchange technical information and network with colleagues.
