AVS 67 PLENARY LECTURE
Professor Alec Wodtke from the Georg-August University of Göttingen and The Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Germany, will be presenting our Plenary Lecture entitled, “Pump-probe Experiments With Neutral Matter: A New Approach to the Kinetics of Surface Reactions,” on Monday, October 25, 5:30-6:30 p.m.
BIOMATERIALS PLENARY SESSION (BP)
The Biomaterials Interfaces program kicks off with the now traditional Biomaterials Plenary Session. This year we are pleased to have presentations from two prominent scientists who will present their cutting-edge research on Materials and Biology for Energy Applications.

NANOSCALE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY DIVISION PLENARY SESSION (NP)
Starting a new tradition in the Nanoscale Science and Technology Division (NSTD), we celebrate 28 years of nanoscience in AVS by kicking off the week with two major events that highlight the exciting work going on across the myriad of disciplines that connect with nanoscience. In this session highlighting our awards winners and finalists, we will start with a plenary talk by the 2021 NSTD Recognition Winner Robert Carpick on “Seeing the Hidden Interface: Revealing Nanoscale Mechanisms of Contact, Adhesion, and Friction by in situ Experiments.” Subsequently, we will shift to our younger generation with the Graduate Student and Early Career Award Finalist Lightning Talks.

AVS LATE BREAKING SESSION
There will be opportunities for presentation of post-deadline discoveries in all fields relevant to the AVS membership. Submissions that address topics in surfaces, interfaces, films, nanometer-scale phenomena, emerging technologies, or new innovations. Abstracts will be solicited starting in mid-July for either (1) an individual 20-minute oral presentation, or (2) a poster presentation. Late-Breaking Abstracts will be used to fill holes in the program and they must be submitted via the AVS website by Thursday, August 23, 2021. Notification of acceptance/rejection will be made soon thereafter. Please review the AVS 67 website for details and submission guidelines in mid-July.
AVS SHORT COURSES
Short courses that offer specialized training in specific areas of vacuum science and related technologies will be offered all week, commencing on Monday, October 25, 2021. Registration and additional details will be posted on the AVS website in early July.
AVS SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM
AVS is a not-for-profit Society that offers a myriad of services, programs and events related to science and technology in the fields of vacuum, materials, interfaces and processing to scientists and engineers from around the world. An extensive recognition and exposure program, which is active before and during the Symposium, is available to our Symposium Sponsors. As a Symposium Sponsor, your logo will appear on the AVS website, in the Technical/Exhibitor Program, on signage and slide shows at the Symposium. The earlier you commit to AVS Symposium Sponsorship, the greater exposure you will receive.
