The International Workshops on Surface Physics (IWSP) were started in 2003. They are intended to continue tradition of the International Seminar on Surface Physics organized by the Institute of Experimental Physics of the University of Wrocław since 1976. The conference was decided to switch to a workshop form. The subject of each workshop concerns important, cutting-edge topics in surface science. The program of the workshop is built around several invited talks presented by the world's leading scientists, and prepared for the sake of graduate students and young researchers. The goal of the workshop is to enable the review and discussion of the current state of research in the field and to show perspectives and the most probable paths of progress in the area of interest. The informal atmosphere of the meeting allows all participants to contribute to stimulating and fruitful discussions and exchange of ideas during and after oral and poster presentations. The number of lectures is planned to be between ten and fifteen.
