Preliminary Announcement

This is the announcement for the Workshop on “Low Energy Electron Dynamics and Correlation near Surfaces and Nanostructures”, which will take place at the Castle Hernstein (30 km from Vienna), Austria from September 7th to 11th, 2015 and constitutes a meeting organised within the EC-funded Marie Sklodowska Curie Initial Training Network SIMDALEE2


Low Energy Electrons are becoming increasingly important in many different fields of science and technology. Specialised techniques are emerging to study phenomena related to low energy electrons near solid surfaces. These comprise measurements of correlated electron pairs using coincidence techniques, electron holography, (e,2e)-spectroscopy, two electron photoemission, near field emission electron microscopy and others.

This meeting will foster the exchange between scientists in the above fields, highlighting both experimental and theoretical advances in the field presenting and discussing results on:

  • Coincidence Spectroscopy (with a focus on solid surfaces) and Correlated Materials
  • Pump-Probe and Time-resolved Electron Spectroscopy
  • Interaction of Low Energy Electrons with Solids
  • Low Energy Electron Microscopy and Spectroscopy
  • Experimental Advances for Manipulation and Detection of Low Energy Electrons

The aim of this specialized workshop is to bring together leading scientists as well as newcomers to the field that are involved in the different topics of relevance and to work out guidelines along which the field can advance most rapidly.

Workshop structure: The duration of the workshop will be 5 days. The scientific program will consist of invited lecturers from selected worldwide recognized groups. A limited number of contributions will be accepted for oral presentations. Round tables will be organized to discuss recent results and future trends in nanostructure characterisation. A poster session is scheduled for contributed papers in the historical rooms of the Castle in the evenings. The total number of participants is limited to about 70. The venue guarantees an event in which intensive interaction will take place throughout the workshop during scientific as well as social events.


All participants will be accommodated in the Castle Hernstein (Austria) in single and double-bed rooms (all with shower/bath, WC and TV). We only have a certain limited number of rooms at our disposal and therefore urge you to fill out the online-registration form as soon as possible. The number of single rooms is limited. If possible please indicate a room-mate, with whom you would like to share your room. All registration will be done strictly on a first come - first serve basis.

The Symposium will start in the evening of Monday, September 7th, 2015 with a welcome reception starting at 18:00 PM, before dinner. You should therefore plan to arrive on Monday evening the latest. However, arrival on Sunday September 6th, 2015 is possible for an additional fee of 100€ (this includes the dinner of Sunday evening and breakfast of Monday morning).

Upon registration, you will receive the conference programme booklet together with the final program. Full board for participants arriving on Monday starts on Monday evening with dinner. The scientific program runs from Tuesday morning till Friday at noon.

Important notice: it will not be possible to extend your stay at the Castle Herrnstein after the end of the conference. If you wish to stay in the Vienna area or if your return flight is on Saturday, you will have to book a room elsewhere Hotels in city center (in German). There are a few hotels located directly at the airport (such as the nh- vienna aiport hotel) which is connected to the city centre by a 20-min train trip (airport-city center transfer(in German)).


Abstracts of contributions to the scientific program during the poster session as well as invited lectures will be compiled in a programme booklet. Abstracts are expected to arrive no later than June 15th, 2015 and should be submitted electronically. For preparation and submission follow the instructions on the abstract submission page.
