The OSI-VIII conference took place on September 7-11th 2009 on the beautiful island of Ischia, the largest island in the Bay of Naples. This conference is the eighth in a series of very successful international meetings held every two years that brings together active researchers and students from universities and institutes throughout the world to discuss recent developments and future directions in different fields of optical spectroscopy at surfaces and interfaces.

The goal of OSI is the understanding of the potential of the different optical techniques with respect to interface analysis, their present status and their possible limits. All kind of surface and interface systems may be discussed.
