The 14th European Conference on Surface Crystallography and Dynamics (ECSCD-14) will be held on May 4-5, 2021 as a virtual event. The conference will be organized by the Peter Grünberg Institute, Forschungszentrum Jülich. Note that initially
the ECSCD-14 was planned to take place at Eibsee, Zugspitze, Germany in May 2020 but had to be postponed due to the pandemic situation in Europe.

ECSCD-14 will have a reduced program:  Several selected tutorial and invited talks will be organized in two sessions on May 4th and 5th.

After registration (starting on April 12th, 2021), online attendance of the conference will be free of charge.
