Welcome to UCF

The 79th Physical Electronics Conference, including the prestigious Nottingham Prize Competition for the best presentation based on doctoral research, will be held at the University of Central Florida in beautiful Orlando, Florida. This topical conference provides a yearly forum for the dissemination and discussion of novel and fundamental theoretical and experimental research in the physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering of surfaces and interfaces. It includes the prestigious Nottingham Prize competition for best presentation based on doctoral research.

Conference Format

In addition to two 40-minute keynote invited talks, the conference will include 20-minute oral presentations in a single-session format with lively discussions. The three-day format of the conference limits the total number of oral contributions to about 50. Additional contributions are included in poster sessions. Except for the Nottingham contestants, a one-page abstract is the sole written contribution required of contributors.
