Scope and Topics
The First International Symposium on Atomically Controlled Surfaces and Interfaces was held in Tokyo (1991). Bearing in mind the recent 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.
Following the successful series of ACSIN conferences in Tokyo (
The conference is open for scientists and engineers in the fields of condensed matter physics, inorganic and organic chemistry, and biology.
