We are sorry to announce the cancellation of the 12th Symposium on Vacuum based Science and Technology due to the low number of registrations.

We did everything possible to continue the good tradition of our previous eleven meetings. Unfortunately, this year, the accumulation of many factors that have made our times difficult also made our meeting impossible to take place.

Please accept our apologies for any inconveniences. For those who had paid for the conference fee, you’ll receive a full refund.
