SAOG represents the Surface Science and Thin Films Community of Switzerland

The main activity of the SAOG group is organizing the annual SAOG Meeting - a one day symposium covering newest developments in the field of surface, interface and nanoscale sciences.

Distinguished invited speakers (with three nobelists so far) and contributed oral and poster presentations by young representatives from the field characterize the SAOG meeting.

Beyond the oral presentations, the exhibition by manufacturers of technical equipment and the poster session during lunch and coffee breaks are special highlights of our meeting.
