Dear colleagues,

These times have been difficult for everyone, but we understand and  share the wish to pursue the new normality with face to face events.  Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has imposed several restrictions  that do not allow us to continue with the original plans of having a  hybrid conference. After careful consideration, the board of directors  has decided that the XIV International Conference on Surfaces,  Materials, and Vacuum (XIV-ICSMV) will be a Virtual Conference, from  October 17th to 22nd, 2021.

In accordance, the important dates are now updated:

  • Abstract submission  deadline:  September 15th, 2021 (Only Posters).

  • Registration deadlines:

  • EarlyBird: October 1st, 2021

  • Student grant application deadline: October 1st, 2021.

  • Intercovamex award deadline: October 1st, 2021.


We would like to remind you that all virtual activities will be  through the use of the WHOVA platform; therefore, we urge you to  complete the registration process at least a week before the meeting.


Best Regards
The Organizing Committee
