21–25 October 2018 ACSIN-14 & ICSPM26
We will attend the joint conference, 14th International Conference on Atomically Controlled Surfaces, Interfaces and Nanostructures (ACSIN-14)/26th International colloquium on Scanning Probe Microscopy (ICSPM26), which will be held at Sendai International Center in Japan from October 21 to 25, 2018.
The first International Symposium on Atomically Controlled Surfaces and Interfaces was held in Tokyo, from November 19th to 22nd, 1991 by Thin Film and Surface Physics Division in The Japan Society of Applied Physics in commemoration of its 20th anniversary. Bearing in mind the developments in nanoscience and nanotechnology, the word "Nanostructures" has been added to the name of the conference since the fifth International Conference on Atomically Controlled Surfaces, Interfaces and Nanostructures (ACSIN-5) was held in Aix-en Provence in 1999. The host country of ACSIN has been determined based on a policy of continental rotation among Asia, Europe and America every two years. Following the successful series of ACSIN conferences in Tokyo (ACSIN-9, 2007), Granada (ACSIN-10, 2009), Saint Petersburg (ACSIN-11, 2011), Tsukuba (ACSIN-12, 2013), and Rome (ACSIN-13, 2016), ACSIN-14 will be held in Sendai, Japan this time.
ICSPM, International Colloquium on Scanning Probe Microscopy has been held under the sponsorship of The Japan Society of Applied Physics, and was originally a series of the domestic conferences on SPM organized in 1985 first to stimulate the SPM related science and technology which were growing in Japan. In 1993, the conference was reorganized as an international colloquium and has been held annually.
In 2000, ICSPM8 and Asian SPM 3 were held in conjunction to make a progressive development of this field. The Asian SPM is the conference organized to encourage interactions and exchange of participants from Asian and Pacific rim countries. In 2002, in order to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the colloquium, the ICSPM10 was successfully held in Hawaii. In 2005, ICSPM13 was held in conjunction with STM05 in Sapporo with more than 750 participants from 39 countries. In 2012, the 20th colloquium, ICSPM20 was held in Okinawa. In 2016, ICSPM24 was held in Hawaii, which was the 30th commemorable colloquium counting from the early domestic conferences.
