Welcome to the twelfth International Conference on Electron Spectroscopy and Structure: ICESS-12, a major scientific event where about 400 participants are expected from all over the world.
Electronic structure is one of the fundamental properties of matter, and there have been important discoveries recently, in AMO (e.g. fundamental problems of localization and quantum entanglement), materials science (Nobel Prize awarded for pioneering research on graphene properties) or nanoscience at the frontiers of gas phase and surface science, together with significant input from theoretical modeling.
In this context, state-of-the-art instrumentation and scientific support available at large-scale facilities worldwide have played a major role. These laboratories also act as incubators for emerging scientific and technological advances (ultrafast, ultrasmall, XFEL technology, diffractive imaging etc.).
We encourage a significant number of young scientists and scientists from emerging countries to attend

This series of conferences started in 1971 in Asilomar (USA) as the International Conference on Electron Spectroscopy (ICES), and since 2000 the scope has been widened to include electronic structures. After Berkeley, Uppsala, Iguaçu Falls and Nara, the newly opened Synchrotron SOLEIL is honored to host the twelfth edition of the conference in Saint-Malo, with the support of other French research institutions and universities and the Brittany District. During the last few years completely new scientific opportunities have appeared and have given rise to amazing discoveries, which we are convinced will be highlighted at this conference. It is expected that a large number of commercial exhibitors and staff from the facilities who have accompanied our research over the years, will be present.
