Welcome to VACUUM SYMPOSIUM 2017

Vacuum Symposium brings together leading scientists, invited speakers and users with practical and extensive knowledge who will give presentations, both oral and poster, illustrating techniques and experience in different fields. It is the intention that attendees gain from their knowledge, ideas and experiences and they will have ample opportunity to network with like-minded individuals.

Now into our 8th year, the 2017 Event (VS8) will be held on 11th and 12th October 2017.  Further details can be found by following the ‘2017 Event’ link above, or by clicking HERE.

Information on VS7, and other previous meetings, can be found by following the ‘History’ navigation link above.

The Vacuum Symposium is an event that brings together meetings from various organisations under the one roof. Through the sponsorship of our generous partners and supporters Vacuum Symposium is able to offer this event free of charge to attendees (other than training).

Maximum Interaction possible with Industry

Research and knowledge can only be advanced in this day and age through effective industry collaboration. Vacuum Symposium is co-located with the Vacuum Expo, the UK’s exhibition for vacuum, nanotechnology and “technologies-in-a-vacuum” and PHOTONEX the UK’s showcase event for light technologies. Attendees have a value-added opportunity at Ricoh Arena Coventry.
