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 Kailua-Kona (Hawaii) in 2005, the 6th at Kanazawa (Japan) in 2007, the 7th at Maui (Hawaii) in 2009, the 8th at Seoul (Korea) in 2011, the 9th at Kona (Hawaii) in 2013, and the 10th at Matsue (Japan) in 2015. It is time to gather again for ALC'17, which is planned to be held in Kauai, Garden Island in Hawaii.

The official language of the symposium is English.

Call for Papers

We encourage the submission of papers describing work related to the symposium topics. Each contributor should submit a talk title, brief abstract (text only, within 150 words) and contact information via the ALC'17 web site by an application deadline shown below. The program committee will make a decision to accept or reject titles by September 11, 2017, and the decision will be announced by e-mail to each author. The submitted brief abstract will be appeared on a program book.

All accepted authors are then required to submit 2-6 pages of camera-ready manuscripts for the proceedings. Authors submitting no proceedings manuscripts will be judged to have withdrawn their papers. The book of proceedings is not a publication.

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.

SIA/e-JSSNT Deadline

January 12 (Fri), 2018

Details of the paper preparation/submission for reviewed journals will be announced here by the end of November 2017.

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. HDMI, 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.

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.

The program committee will announce the winners on the website by the end of August. Each winner will receive ¥25,000, which is only available to winners who attend the symposium and submit their manuscript to the special issue of Surface and Interface Analysis (SIA). Note that winners must still pay the registration fee. The winners will give short oral presentations (5 min each) at the Symposium.

Templates for an Application to the Award

You can use one of the following templates for an application.

Travel Support for Young Scientists

A limited number of partial travel support is available for researchers under 40 years old (rough guideline) on December 2017. Only those who are accepted for paper presentation and have financial difficulty in traveling will be considered for the support. Students are ineligible for this support (students can apply to the Students Awards).

The applicant must be the first author of the presentation. To apply for the Travel Support, a letter of application, 1 page of abstract and a statement of reason must be prepared. A written form must be saved in a PDF format and should be sent together with a presentation application. A template file for an application can be downloaded below.

The deadline is the same as that for the regular application, July 14 (Fri).

The steering committee will strictly judge whether the application should be accepted or not, and a notification will be sent by an e-mail to the applicant by the end of August.

Symposium Venue

ALC'17 will be held at Aqua Kauai Beach Resort located in Kauai, Hawaii, USA. Kauai is geologically the oldest of the main Hawaiian Islands. You can find useful information on Aqua Kauai Beach Resort and Kauai Island in the following URLs.

Location, Transportation and Climate

Aqua Kauai Beach Resort located on the eastern shores of the gorgeous Garden Isle, about 5 km from Lihue Airport on Kauai Island. Beautiful 25-acre property is nestled in an oceanfront country setting and centrally located near Lihue. There is a complimentary shuttle between the hotel and Lihue Airport. Please contact the hotel for availability of the shuttle.

The “Garden Island” of Kauai is the furthest north of Hawaii's main islands, making it slightly cooler than the others. The typical summer daytime high is in the range of 28-30 °C, the nighttime low is typically 21-22 °C, and the fall temperatures are only slightly different from those in the summer.
