Science Division Report for ECM-82
We have established
the Surface Science Division Committee in the SSD meeting held on September
1, Tuesday, 1998 for the 1998-2001 triennium:
John OConnor (Secretary)
Dr. Peter Varga
Dr. Jurgen Kirschner
Akio Yoshimori (Cochair)
John Weaver (Cochair)
In the meeting,
we reviewed the activities of the division and identified new challenges.
Although this is not discussed explicitly in the meeting, we feel strongly
that surface science is facing a kind of turning point. This is indicated
by the fact that the invited talk, "biology meets surface science",
attracted so many audience in ICSS-10. We believe that the division activities
will be important also in this respect.
IUVSTA workshops is one of the important functions of the division. In
the next triennium, we have the following workshops approved, discussed
phenomena related to electrons at surfaces" to be held in Kushiro,
Hokkaido, Japan, in November, 2000, by Y. Murata, approved in the last
materials: principles and uses" jointly with VS and VM, discussed
in the last SSD committee.
of medium energy ion scattering to surface analysis" jointly with
AS in Korea or UK, proposed.
holography of surface" in possibly Hong Kong by Klaus Heinz and
David Tong, proposed
interactions in CVD and other fluid mechanics applications" jointly
with VS, by A. Rebrov and M. Ivanov, proposed.
