The Conference on Ion-Surface Interactions 2015 (ISI-2015) will be the next one in a series of traditional biennial meetings promoting growth and exchange of scientific information on the physics of atomic collisions with solids, and related topics. Beginning with 1971, the conferences were held in Kharkov, Moscow, Kiev, Minsk, in the town of Zvenigorod near Moscow, and in Yaroslavl.

The scientific programme of the conference Ion-Surface Interactions includes the main aspects of this scientific discipline: ion scattering and penetration, sputtering and secondary ion emission, electron excitation, ion-induced electron, photon and X-ray emission, ion-assisted processes in thin films and nanostructures, radiation damage accumulation and plasma-surface interactions. Although the focus of the conference is on the fundamental aspects of these effects in theoretical and experimental research and computer simulation, presentations on process and device applications, particularly on surface analyses and modification, are welcome.


The scientific programme will include invited plenary talks, as well as oral and poster presentations held in the following sections:

  1. Sputtering, surface erosion, desorption
  2. Ion scattering and penetration
  3. Emission of ions, electrons, photons and X-rays under ion-surface interaction
  4. Ion implantation and surface modification
  5. Ion-assisted processes in nanostructures and thin films
  6. Plasma-surface interaction: physics and technology

ISI-2015 will run with no parallel sessions.

The duration of invited talks will be 25 minutes plus 5 minutes for discussion. The other oral talks are scheduled for 10 minutes and 5 minutes for discussion. The oral talk illustrations are to be made as Power Point presentation.

Poster sessions will be held after the oral sessions. Posters of 60cm  x 80cm size should be put up the evening before, and removed immediately after the poster session.

The preliminary list of invited speakers and the program will be available on the conference website.


The working languages of the conference will be English (all oral presentations and posters). It is possible also to present posters in Russian, but titles, abstracts and figure captions should be in English.


Participants are requested to contribute to the scientific program by submitting extended abstracts (4 pages, A4 for regular reports and 4 - 6 pages A4 for invited talks, including figures). The instructions of abstract preparation see here. Abstracts must be received not later than March 15, 2015.
Registered participants will recieve a book of extended abstracts on their arrival.

For Russian applicants: please read the Russian version of our website for exact application rules and contact information.


Extended abstracts should be submitted in duplicate, either in English or in Russian. Abstracts are to be sent by e-mail to Dr. E. Zykova and copy to the Conference Secretary.


Selected and refereed papers of the Conference will be published in Russian or in English as special issues of the Russian journals Izvestiya RAN, ser. fiz. (The Bulletin of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Physics) or Poverkhnost' (J. of Surface Investigation, Springer). Some papers (in English) will be published in a special issue of the international journal Vacuum (Elsevier Publishers) and in Rad.Eff.and Def. in Solids. Manuscripts prepared for publication in the Conference Proceedings should not exceed 8 printed pages for regular papers and 12 pages for invited papers. An electronic version of paper and two printed copies should be submitted on the first day of the conference.


The regular conference fee is 450 Euro (250 Euro for students and 200 Euro for accompanying persons) and should be paid in cash on your arrival to Moscow. It covers transportation from Moscow airport and back, a book of extended abstracts, lunches and evening meals, excursion, the conference dinner.

You can pay the fee via bank transfer (preferred) using requisites present at Downloads page of our website, or else pay it during onsite registration.

Note: (i) All bank charges involved in making the bank transfer must be paid by the delegate and not by the conference organisers; (ii) Kindly send the proof of bank transfer by e-mail to edmarenkov@mephi.ru as soon as the transfer has been made.


Participants are asked to fill in the registration form and send it by e-mail to the ISI-2015 Conference Secretariat or else to complete it online complete it online at the Conference website (corresponding pageform will be available soon).
