The International Vacuum Congress (IVC) is an international conference, which has been held every three years since 1958 under the commission of International Union for Vacuum Science, Techniques and Applications (IUVSTA). The 22nd IVC (IVC-22), the 18th International Conference on Solid Surfaces (ICSS-18), the International Conference on Nanoscience+Technology (ICN+T 2022), and the 11th Vacuum and Surface Sciences Conference of Asia and Australia (VASSCAA-11) will be held in Sapporo, Japan from September 11 to 16, 2022, co-hosted by Japan Society of Vacuum & Surface Science (JVSS) and Science Council of Japan with support of Japan Vacuum Industry Association (JVIA). The conferences also incorporate the International Symposium on Sputtering Plasma Processes (ISSP), the International Colloquium on Scanning Probe Microscopy (ICSPM) and the Annual Meeting of JVSS.
