Satellite Meetings
2007-02-15: Two satellite meetings will be organised in connection with the congress:

Symposium on Ionized Physical Vapor Deposition June 28 – 30, 2007, Linköping, Sweden

51st IUVSTA Workshop on Modern Problems and Capability of Vacuum Gas Dynamics

Proceedings: IoP is publishing partner
2007-01-15: We are happy to announce that the proceedings of the congress will be published in Institute of Physics’ journal: Journal of Physics: Conference Series.

Lars Johansson, Proceedings Editor says:

"We are very pleased to have the Institute of Physics as the publishing partner to the combined IVC-17/ICSS-13 and ICN+T2007 congress in Stockholm 2 – 6 July. The congress will be a large global event in the fields of nanoscience and technology, as well as materials, surface and vacuum science. The agreement with IOP gives us an easy and cost-effective solution for the publication of the proceedings, which will be published in Journal of Physics: Conference Series, a well-reputed online journal for conference proceedings. A big additional benefit is the promotional services that IOP offers through its many different publications and media. We look forward to working together with IOP."
