First LEEM Workshop

The First LEEM Workshop was held in Tempe, Arizona, USA on April 7-9, 1998. The meeting was organized by Prof. Ernst Bauer of the Arizona State University. The stated purpose of the 1st LEEM Workshop was to review the state of the art in LEEM and to make links to related techniques. The meeting attracted 40 researchers from eight countries. The proceedings of the first LEEM Workshop were published in a special issue of Surface Review and Letters (Vol. 5, No. 6).
