About SAOG

SAOG Meeting: January 28th, 2022 cancelled!

Due to new COVID-19 regulations installed by the Swiss government we regretably cancelled the next meeting. Currently, we evaluate a later date in 2022 for holding the meeting. Please return to this page for updates.

SAOG represents the Surface Science and Thin Films Community of Switzerland

The main activity of the SAOG group is organising the annual SAOG Meeting - a one day symposium covering newest developments in the field of surface, interface and nanoscale sciences.
Distinguished invited speakers (with four nobelists so far) and contributed oral and poster presentations by young representatives from the field characterize the SAOG meeting.
Beyond oral presentations, the exhibition by manufacturers of technical equipment and the poster session during lunch and coffee breaks are special highlights of our meeting.
