The European Conference on Surface Crystallography and Dynamics (ECSCD) addresses the atomic-scale characterization of surface structure and its relation to dynamics. The main focus is the precise determination of atomic positions in systems of increasing complexity, carried out by means of experimental and computational methods. Topics include a wide range of processes (adatom and molecule diffusion, surface stress, surface thermodynamics, self-assembled systems, and magnetism) occurring at the surfaces of different materials (metals, alloys, oxides, nanostructures, clusters, complex and smart materials). Methods may span from surface science in vacuum to novel approaches focused on bridging pressure and material gaps, towards in situ and in operando studies with time and/or spatial resolution. The conference aims at providing a forum where highly reputed invited speakers and younger researchers can exchange knowledge and discuss the most recent theoretical and experimental developments in surface crystallography.
