SPA-LEED Workshop 2016

Spot Profile Analysis Low Energy Electron Diffraction, i.e., SPA-LEED, was developed at the University of Hannover in the 1980s, and has since then acquired a solid group of researchers who have applied the technique to a variety of surface science problems. Researchers who work actively with SPA-LEED meet every 1-2 years for an informal exchange of their research and to discuss the future of the method.

After the last meeting in Hannover on the occasion of Prof. Martin Henzler’s 80th birthday, the next SPA-LEED workshop is hosted by M. Horn-von Hoegen and F. Meyer zu Heringdorf at the University of Duisburg.

Workshop Date and Venue

The workshop will take place from Oct. 27-28, 2016 at the katholische Akademie “Die Wolfsburg” in Mülheim an der Ruhr in Germany. The scientific program will start at 11 a.m. on Oct. 27, so that there will be sufficient time for arrival/registration in the morning. The scientific program will end in the afternoon of Oct., 28 not later than 5 p.m.

Travel to “Die Wolfsburg“ is easily possible by car or by public transportation. After arriving by train in Duisburg, you take the subway Line 901 towards Mülheim and exit at the stop “Mülheim Monning”. From there it is a 850m walk up the Hill to “Die Wolfsburg”. A taxi from Duisburg HBF to the Wolfsburg will probably cost less than EUR 15.


It is planned that all participants are accommodated at “Die Wolfsburg” for the night from Oct. 27th to Oct. 28th. Accommodation is included in the registration.


Please register online. The registration link will be available soon here. Alternatively, check for updates on conference registration at the Horn-von Hoegen Group's website. This is where that actual registration scripts are hosted.

The registration fees will be

Registration Type Room Type Registration Fee
Senior Scientist / Postdoc single room EUR 150,-
Junior Researcher / PhD student shared double room EUR 100,-


Financial Support for this workshop comes from the Center for Nanointegration Duisburg-Essen (CENIDE).
