The Laboratory for Surface Modification (LSM) will host the Thirty-Third Annual LSM Symposium on Thursday, April 11, 2019. The symposium will focus on experimental and theoretical studies of surfaces, interfaces, thin films and their applications, as well as nanoscale phenomena. We will include both oral and poster presentations; contributed talks will be 15 minutes long (including a short discussion).

The program will include two invited "Highlight Presentations" by two prominent invited speakers:

Professor Christopher Palmstrom, University of California, Santa Barabara

Professor Tim Kaxiras, Harvard University

This meeting is an excellent opportunity for graduate students and postdocs to present their work in a friendly atmosphere. Of course, faculty members are welcome to speak as well. We also encourage participants from other universities to attend and present their work. The final program can be viewed at the following link:
