10th International Workshop of Advanced Spectroscopy of

Organic Materials for Electronic Applications


Last update on 27 July 2020


Important notice:

The LOCAL ORGANIZING COMMITTEE decided to postpone ASOMEA-X workshop for one year to the following new schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the restricted travel situation.

New tentative schedule for ASOMEA-X: October 25 to October 28, 2021

Although an on-line workshop may have been another choice, we would like face-to-face communication in ASOMEA-X next year similar to the cases of the previous successful ASOMEA workshops.


30 November – 3 December, 2020

The Institute for Solid State Physics, The University of Tokyo (Kashiwa Campus)

Invited speakers (confirmed on 1 March 2020)

Deadline of abstract submission: 31 July 2020: new date will be announced later

Deadline of registration: 30 September 2020: new date will be announced later


 The series of biannual ASOMEA-workshops began in 2001 as a meeting of Swedish and Japanese scientists working with spectroscopic techniques and theoretical modeling for a better understanding of organic electronic materials and related interfaces. In 2016 the scope of the workshop was widened to include the German community.

 In ASOMEA-X (2020), we plan to include Asian communities and the intention to focus on not only organic but also various materials at advanced stages, in-situ/operando techniques, time-resolved spectroscopy and local probe microscopy/spectroscopy.

 We are expecting around 80 participants primarily not only from Sweden, Germany and Japan but also from other countries across the world.

 The size and focus of the meeting will support a lively and intimate atmosphere with discussions on the overall progress and recent development of spectroscopic methods in particular.




1.     Spectroscopy of molecular liquids, solids and interfaces

2.     UV and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopies/microscopies

3.     X-ray absorption and emission spectroscopies

4.     Time-resolved/multi-colored spectroscopies

5.     Ambient pressure/operando spectroscopies

6.     Nano & atomic scale observation and spectroscopy of surfaces
