On-Surface Synthesis International Workshop (OSS20)

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation the workshop has been postponed to 2021.The new dates in 2021 are from September 30 to October 5.

Please refer to the new website http://oss21.dipc.org/ for updated information.

On-surface synthesis unites the easy tunability of molecular materials and the promises of self-assembly as a revolutionary production method, with the sturdiness of covalently bonded structures. This most attractive combination is drawing the interest of a rapidly increasing number of researchers. Important efforts are being devoted to augment the available on-surface synthesis toolbox, to improve our understanding of the chemical reaction mechanisms, as well as to the synthesis and characterization of new molecular architectures of potential interest for diverse applications.
Because this approach bridges across the fields of chemistry, physics and materials science, the aim of this fourth edition of the "On-Surface Synthesis" international workshop (following OSS14 in Les Houches, OSS16 in San Sebastian and OSS18 in Sant Feliu de GuĂ­xols) is to bring together researchers working in this field from different perspectives, theory and experiment, as well as with chemical, physical and/or application-oriented viewpoints.
