WELCOME TO OSI9 AT AKUMAL, MEXICO
We invite you to join us at the 9th Optics of Surfaces and Interfaces (OSI9) international conference to be held on September 19-23, 2011 in Akumal, Mexico. Akumal is a small beach-front tourist resort community south of Cancún, between the towns of Playa del Carmen and Tulum. It is a Mexican tourist destination due to its natural attractions.
The OSI started in Rome (Italy, 1995) and has evolved into a leading international conference, including successful meetings in Åalesund (Norway, 1997), Sainte-Maxime (France, 1999), Bad Honnef (Germany, 2001), Leon (Mexico, 2003), Aalborg (Denmark, 2005), Grand Targhee (USA, 2007), and Ischia (Italy, 2009).
The conference topics present a balanced overview of new results, emerging trends, and perspectives in the science of optics of surfaces and interfaces, nanoparticles, and nanostructures, providing an interdisciplinary forum for presentation and discussion of fundamental and technological developments in these fields. The interdisciplinary approach of the conference motivates new research topics yielding innovative applications of science.
