The series of
international symposia entitled "Atomic Level
Characterizations (ALC)" commenced in 1996 with the
event in Kyoto, Japan under the auspices of the 141st
Committee on Microbeam Analysis of Japan Society for the
Promotion of Science (JSPS). The ALC symposia focus on
practical applications of the atomic level
characterization of new materials and devices.
Applications of and instrumentation for various
analytical techniques for surface and interface analysis
are therefore within the scope of these symposia, leading
to the possibility of stimulating discussion among
researchers who are intimately involved with analysis by
different probe methods. The fundamental problems to be
solved for further development of the atomic level
characterization of materials are also covered, including
theoretical and simulational approaches to this science.
ALC'03 will be held at the Radisson Kauai Beach Resort, Kauai, Hawaii, U.S.A., from October 05 (Sun) to October10 (Fri), 2003, with the support of the 141st Committee on Microbeam Analysis of Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). Kauai is called "The Garden Isle" and is blessed with some of the most breathtaking landscapes and sights that Hawaii can offer.
|Scope and Scientific Program
The topical subjects are as follows.
1. Fundamental Phenomena
2. Characterization by Electrons/Ions/Infrared light/Ultraviolet light/X-rays
3. Imaging Techniques
4. Application for Nanotechnology
5. Special Sessions
6. Tutorial Sessions
The official language of the symposium is English.
The symposium site (Radisson Kauai Beach Resort) is located less than 5 miles (7 minutes) from Lihue Airport, just a 20-minute flight from Honolulu, and is a top resort destination. It is in the most convenient central location with a free shuttle service to the airport, and is within three miles of the luxury ocean-front property surrounded by exotic lagoons and waterfalls with enchanting native foliage.
All participants will be accommodated at the Radisson Kauai Beach Resort. Three classes of guest room are available at the following prices per room per night (not including breakfast):
All rates are subject to 11.416 % Hawaii State tax. These quoted rates will be in force from 4 days before to 4 days after the period of the symposium, based on availability. The hotel charge should be paid directly to the hotel by each participant.
For making a reservation, please download and print out a "Hotel Reservation Form" (PDF format), and fill in the form, then FAX it to the hotel.
DEADLINE: Final day for reservation is: July 18, 2003.
The "Garden Island" of Kauai is the furthest north of Hawaii's main islands, making it slightly cooler than the others. The typical summer daytime high is in the range of 28.9-30.6 �C, the nighttime low is typically 21.1-22.2 �C, and the fall temperatures are only slightly different from those in the summer.
