From the very beginning the Annual Conference of the Sociedad Mexicana de Ciencia y Tecnología de Superficies y Materiales (SMCTSM, Mexican Society of Science and Technology of Surfaces and Materials) has been an important forum used by the Mexican scientific community for the discussion of scientific and technological topics related to research in the areas of surface and materials science. The SMCTSM is pleased to invited you to participate in the IX International Conference on Surface, Materials and Vacuum (ICSMV) which will held in the city of Mazatlán, Sinaloa from the 26th to the 30th of September. The conferences will be held at the Hotel Playa Mazatlán facilities and this year our local host is Universidad Autónoma de Sinaloa.
The scientific program of the Conference is divided into plenary conferences, short courses and the different symposia with oral and poster. For the IX edition the Sol-Gel symposium has been reorganize into the Advanced Materials Synthesized by Chemical Routes Symposium, Photothermal Phenomena will be separated from the Plasma and Vacuum and we have two invited symposiums the Luminescence Phenomena: Materials and Applications and the Atomic Layer deposition.
Additionally to the scientific program, there is a symposium of Popularization of Science which is a traditional forum for the bringing together of students and the general public with the work undertaken and developed within our Society.
We hope that the efforts of the organizing committee, sponsors and colleagues and the beautiful sunsets from the pacific will result in an interesting friendly meeting, providing the opportunity for closer and new interactions between researchers coming from the diverse institutions.
