The main goal of the School is to let the opportunity for graduate students, postgraduate fellows, and young researchers to meet and interact with leading scientists from complex and diverse field of plasma-surface interactions.

The School’s format includes the course of the lectures given by leading scientists, talks and posters given by participants, as well as discussions on the most vibrant topics of the field.

Scientists specialized in other disciplines or those who have recently entered the fields of plasma-surface interactions will also benefit from the School, which provides an overview of the various inter-connected research topics and represents the latest developments in the field. Both undergraduates and teachers are welcome, as is anyone with an interest in the subject.

Graduate students and young scientists are strongly encouraged to present their own work in the form of either 20-minute oral presentation or as a poster.

If you want to attend the School, please send an e-mail with your name and contact information to Dr. Evgeny Marenkov <> by 05 June 2014.
