Conference Synopsis

The first Conference on Surface Science and its Applications (CSSA) is going to be held at Aljouf University, is a step toward in the progress of scientific research. The conference will provide a forum for researchers in all areas of surface science to present their work. Such scientific platform is necessary for any academic institution because it helps for academic accreditation and quality improvement. Also, this conference will give the progress and the role of Aljouf University in the vision 2030 of Saudi Arabia.

This is a significant opportunity for you to hear from leading scientists in the area and to network with colleagues in industry and academia to ensure you keep abreast of recent developments in this fast evolving field.



Aljouf University provides both accommodation and transportation (from the hotel to the conference venue and vice versa) for free to all participants.

For participants who come through Aljouf airport,

please contact Mutaib Aljouride on 0500274004

The Conference Committee is grateful to the Sponsors that supported the Conference:
