Surface Canada 2017-Biannual meeting

Surface Canada 2017-Biannual meeting of the Surface Science Division of the CSC and CAP

Surface Canada 2017
Surface Canada is interdisciplinary in nature, and will bring together world-recognized experts and young researchers from a broad spectrum of disciplines including physics, chemistry, material science engineering and many other fields and will cover a wide range of topics pertinent to surface science, from the fundamental to the applied.

Surface Canada will provide an avenue for scientists from academic, industrial and government labs to meet and define the important problems in the field and to highlight emerging opportunities and potential impact to our society.
