18th International Workshop on Inelastic  Ion-Surface Collisions (IISC-18)

September 26 – October 1, 2010, Gatlinburg, Tennessee, USA

Scientific Program


Conference format

The meeting will provide an informal workshop atmosphere with ample time for discussions. The program will contain a limited number of invited lectures on the main conference topics and some oral contributions selected from the submitted abstracts. All other contributions will be presented in poster sessions. There will be no parallel sessions. This format is intended to promote stimulating discussions on current developments and we expect all the participants to attend the entire meeting.

The Conference Proceedings containing both the invited and contributed papers will be  published by Elsevier in a special issue of Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research, Section B (NIMB). The manuscripts must be submitted during the conference and will be subject to a regular review. The total number of participants will be limited to around 100.

Instructions for Poster Presentations

Poster sessions will be preceded by "poster introductions", where the authors have the opportunity to orally present highlights of their work as a "2 minute commercial". Each presenter of a poster should therefore prepare one- or two-page presentation in a USB memory-stick or CD/DVD. This is not intended to be a complete talk in 2 minutes, but rather an opportunity to attract other participants to your poster. Your poster should fit in a square with dimensions of 4 feet x 4 feet (122 cm. x 122 cm).

Instructions for Oral Presentations

The time allocated for talks will be
  • Plenary lectures (P): 40 min + 5 min discussion;
  • Invited progress reports (R): 25 min + 5 min discussion;
  • Selected short oral contributions (S): 15 min + 5 min discussion.
Chairpersons will be instructed to limit your speaking time rather than the discussion time. We will provide a digital projector connected to a Laptop (running MS-Windows 7) and MS Office 2007. Electronic presentations should preferentially be transferred to this PC via USB memory-stick or CD/DVD. In case you really need to use your own laptop (different operating system, different presentation software, etc.) a video-switch will be available. Any additional requirements should requested in advance.
