The annual Physical Electronics Conference provides a forum for the dissemination and discussion of new research results in the physics and chemistry of surfaces and interfaces. It includes the prestigious Nottingham Prize Competition for best presentation based on doctoral research.

In addition to two 40-minute invited talks, the conference will include 20-minute oral presentations in a single-session format with lively discussions. The conference's three-day format limits the total number of oral contributions to about 60, and additional contributions are included as poster presentations. With the exception of Nottingham contestants, a one-page abstract is the sole written submission required of contributors.
