The article discusses the highlights of the 15th Conference on Applied Surface Analysis held in Soest, Germany on September 8-10, 2008 in Soest, Germany. The conference is said to provide an opportunity for developers and users of surface analysis methods to meet to exchange experience and information. Topics discussed at the conference include the analysis and characterization of the surface of materials and layer systems, chemical reaction at the surface and internal interfaces and particle transport on surfaces and thin films.
