About ALC Symposia

The series of international symposia entitled “Atomic Level Characterization” (ALC) started in 1996 with the meeting in Kyoto, Japan under the auspices of the 141st Committee on Microbeam Analysis of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). The ALC symposia focus on practical applications of atomic level characterization (both atomic dimensions and energy levels) of new materials and devices, including bio- and organic materials as well as inorganics. Descriptions of new applications and instrumentation for various analytical techniques of surface and interface analysis are solicited in these symposia. The goal is to promote stimulating discussions among researchers specializing in different probe methods. The symposium also encourages discussion of fundamental problems to be solved in the further development of atomic level characterization of materials, including approaches based on theory and simulations.

The 2nd ALC symposium was held at Maui (Hawaii) in 1997, the 3rd one at Nara (Japan) in 2001, the 4th at Kauai (Hawaii) in 2003, the 5th on the big island of Hawaii in 2005, the 6th at Kanazawa (Japan) in 2007, the 7th at Maui (Hawaii) in 2009, and the 8th at Seoul(Korea) in 2011. It is time to gather again for ALC'13, which is planned to be held in the big island of Hawaii.

The official language of the symposium is English.

Manuscripts for Reviewed Journals

Selected papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of “Surface and Interface Analysis” (SIA; Wiley) or “e-Journal of Surface Science and Nanotechnology” (e-JSSNT; SSSJ).

i. Special issue of Surface and Interface Analysis (SIA)
This is a traditional hard copy journal published by Wiley InterScience. This option is offered only for a paper with the maximum page length of 4 journal pages (about 4000 words) for contributed papers and 6 journal pages (about 6000 words) for invited ones including figures and tables. Figures and tables should be counted as 250 words equivalent each at normal size. Abstract should not exceed 250 words. Since the pages of the special issue are limited, the publication committee will select papers to be accepted in SIA. The paper will be published according to a normal publication procedure of SIA (see http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1002/(ISSN)1096-9918. Only a corresponding author in the issue can receive a free issue copy.
ii. e-Journal of Surface Science and Nanotechnology (e-JSSNT)
This is a non-paper version of scientific journal published by the Surface Science Society of Japan. There are no page limitations and use of color figures. All the papers including review papers will be peer-reviewed, and will be published in the e-JSSNT web site soon after being accepted. Detailed information of e-JSSNT can be found at http://www.sssj.org/ejssnt/.

Authors can submit the same contents as the proceedings, however, submission format should follow respective instructions of journals which you want to submit.

  1. Before you start a submission procedure, please confirm that all fIle names do NOT include two-byte characters, diacritics and spaces. Detailed information for manuscript preparation is here.
  2. Visit <J-STAGE manuscript submission site> and login to the web system. Please create your account first if you have never logged in before. Instruction for the web submission is here.
  3. Choose “Conference paper” for Manuscript Type, and “Conference-ALC” for Conference name.
  4. Fill in other fields as same as a normal submission, and proceed.

All reviewing and publication processes will be conformed with e-JSSNT procedure. Please follow the instructions written in the e-JSSNT web site.

Presentation Instructions

Instructions for Oral Presentations

A PC projector is available for oral presentations. Please bring your own laptop and connect it to our system during a break time prior to the session featuring your presentation. Since the projector has a normal VGA connector (analog RGB), do not forget to bring a VGA adopter if your PC has a non-VGA (i.e. DVI, mini DisplayPort etc.) connector. Please note that overhead projectors, 35mm slide projectors or any other presentation equipment is NOT available.

Presentation Duration

Instructions for Poster Presentations

When preparing your poster, please include a program number, a title of your presentation and listed author(s). A sign with your program number will be placed at the location where you are to display your work. Please prepare pushpins by yourselves for mounting your poster on the board (changed from the previous announcement).

Presenters are requested to be present at (or near) their poster during the times scheduled for poster viewing. Posters must be removed following your session by the presenting authors. Please note that we cannot take responsibility for any posters left on the boards after the session. Posters will be removed and discarded by the conference committee if they remain on the poster boards the next morning after the poster session.

Symposium Venue and Transportation

Location and Climate

The symposium will be held at the Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay, about 25 km from the Kona International Airport at Keaholeon Hawaii's Big Island. The resort sits on the Kona Coast and features 10 acres of oceanfront properties. The “Big Island” of Hawaii has a mild and temperate climate, relatively free from uncomfortable extremes. The average temperature on Kona during the period of the symposium varies between 18 °C (low) and 26 °C (daytime high). The warm, tropical rain falls primarily at night and helps to make the island a lush, green community with fresh air and many waterfalls.

Transportation

It takes about 40 minutes (~$60) by taxi from the Kona Airport. There is no other public transportation from the airport. For more detail, visit the Sheraton Kona web site.
