Dear Sir/Madam,

   We have a great pleasure to invite you for the 12 th Workshop on Applications of Scanning Probe Microscopy – STM/AFM 2023 which will be held in Zakopane from Wednesday, November 29 to Sunday, December 3, 2023, at the HYRNY Hotel ( The Workshop is organized by the Centre for Nanometer-scale Science and Advanced Materials, NANOSAM, of the Faculty of Physics, Astronomy, and Applied Computer Sciences, Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland.

   The main goal of the Workshop series is to gather scientists who are or who would like to be involved in surface science research using Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM). These SPM methods include Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), and other related techniques operating in ultra-high vacuum environment and liquid/gas atmospheres. We wish the Workshop to be an interdisciplinary meeting for participants representing different theoretical and experimental disciplines of scientific research.

   During the last meeting STM/AFM 2022, (see we had 130 registered participants from 29 research institutions in Poland and foreign countries, and the following SPM companies were presenting their products::

  • A.P. Instruments                    • COMEF
  • Labsoft Sp. z o.o.                   • MEASLINE Sp. z o.o.
  • Mad City Labs GmbH            • NanoAndMore GmbH
  • NANOSCORE                           • PIK INSTRUMENTS
  • Instytut Fotonowy                 • Technolutions

   The Organizers would like to invite all interested companies to present their instruments and marketing materials during the Workshop. We believe the close relationship between manufacturers and distributors of scientific instruments and the Workshop participants is significant for developing nanotechnology and nanoscience in Poland. Interested companies can choose from the following forms of participation:

1. exhibition of scientific equipment and/or display of brochures, books and other scientific papers (including distribution of marketing materials) – 2000 PLN (~440 Euro) +VAT fee, (the above fee covers 6m2 booth for exhibition of equipment/materials and posters, a table and two chairs and also distribution of marketing materials among the Workshop participants)

2. 20 min oral presentation at the relevant scientific session (abstract needed by 10.10.2023)– 1400 PLN (~310 Euro) +VAT fee,

3. distribution of marketing materials (attached to the conference materials given to participants) for companies not attending the Workshop – 600 PLN (~135 Euro) +VAT fee.

   A personal cost of participation is 1800 PLN (about 400 EURO per person - full board package based on single room accommodation, in case of double room – 1500 PLN (VAT included)).
The deadline for registration of the Companies and payments: October 23, 2023.
