The International Symposium on SIMS and Related Techniques Based on Ion-Solid Interactions at Seikei University (SISS-13)
SISS-13 will be held at Toyota Central R&D Labs., Inc., in Nagoya area.

SISS-13 will cover SIMS and related techniques based on ion-solid interactions: fundamentals, instrumentation, and application in various fields, such as semiconductors, industrial materials, biological, medical, and environmental sciences. This symposium will be held as a pre-conference of SIMS-XVIII. In this time, we will have mainly three sessions: Atom Probe, D-SIMS, and TOF-SIMS.

The location of SISS-13 has been changed to Toyota Central R&D Labs., Inc., in Nagoya area. The new place is located 400 km west of Tokyo and is near to an international airport called Centrair airport which has direct airlines to many places including Detroit, Frankfurt, Helsinki, Hong Kong, Beijing, Seoul and Pusan.

Date: June 23 and 24, 2011

Place: Toyota Central R&D Labs., Inc.,, Aichi (Nagoya Area)
(Social meeting: June 23, 2011 at evening)

Lunch on 24th (Fri)
Please reserve your lunch box in advance. There are few restaurants around the symposium site.
