The Southern California Chapter of AVS (SCCAVS) is dedicated to serving the Southern California technical community through technical symposia, educational outreach, and other programs that provide topical information to members and non-members in our region. Our areas of interest include vacuum science and vacuum-related technologies, including surface and thin film science, nanotechnology, the understanding of materials properties, and the development of new materials.

Members of the SCCAVS are from industry, academia, government, and equipment sales and marketing. Membership to the local chapter may be obtained through the National AVS organization.

SCCAVS members and non-members are welcome to attend the chapter's monthly executive board meeting, which provides an opportunity both to contribute to and make new connections with the Southern California technical community. Our discussions focus on developing activities such as speaker meetings, technical workshops, science fairs, newsletter, field trips and the annual symposium and equipment exhibition.

If you have any questions about the SCCAVS and our activities, please contact us.
