On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my pleasure to announce the 8th International Workshop on Surface Physics (IWSP-2017) which is organized by the Institute of Experimental Physics, University of Wroclaw, Poland.

The sessions will cover mostly - but not only - the following topics:

- atoms and molecules on a surface – motion and functionality;
- superstructures on surfaces – properties and applications;
- nano-devices;
- functionalized organic and biomaterials on surfaces;
- physical characterization of nanosystems.

List of invited speakers with confirmed lecture titles:

Claudia Draxl (Berlin, Germany)

James Evans (Ames, Iowa, USA):
Predictive atomistic-level modeling of diffusion-mediated self-assembly and catalytic reaction processes on surfaces

Michael Gottfried (Marburg, Germany):
Surface science of reactive aromatic molecules

Matthias Hengsberger (Zurich, Switzerland):
From attoseconds to picoseconds - dynamics in surfaces studied by photoemission

Robert Kucharczyk (Wrocław, Poland):
