The Workshop will be the 17th of a series started in 1983 (SURPHON workshops) which originally had emphasis on surface lattice dynamics. The interests widened and updated to stay in line with state-of-the art research developments, including diffusion of adsorbates and clusters, growth, surface reactions, molecule-surface interactions, friction, and adsorbate vibrations. The series has also seen growing synergy and interaction between theory and experiments. It lately focused on the role of complexity at surfaces (Leiden, NL, 2012) and non-adiabatic dynamics and (photo)chemical reactions at surfaces (Madrid, ES, 2014). This edition will be held in Milan (Italy) from Sept. 19th to 21st, 2016, with emphasis on the properties of hybrid interfaces at the nanometer length scale.
