The European Vacuum Conference (EVC) held every three years (every two years before 2018) in Europe to discuss the latest developments in vacuum science, technologies and application. The first conference (EVC-1) was initiated by Prof. John S. Colligon in 1988 and held at Salford University (near Manchester, UK). This will only be the second time the event has been held in the UK since the inaugural event 36 years ago. The EVC series are directed by the Vacuum Science and Technology Division of the International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique and Applications (IUVSTA).

The European Conference on Surface Science (ECOSS) is held annually (with the exception of years in which the International Vacuum Congress is held in Europe) and co-ordinated by a joint standing committee of the International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique and Applications and the European Physical Society (EPS). ECOSS is a cross-disciplinary meeting covering fundamental and applied surface science with themes in physics, chemistry and biology. The last time ECOSS was in the UK was in Edinburgh in 2012.

The UK Surface Analysis Forum (UKSAF) is a society for scientists from academia and industry with a common interest in the techniques and applications of surface analysis.

Vacuum Symposium is an annual event that aims to educate and inform in all aspects of vacuum across the many and varied applications.  VS attracts a wide variety of academia and industry, and promotes a great willingness to share knowledge, ideas, and experiences among the participants.  

The RGA User Group is a charity organisation that has been organising RGA User Meetings since 1996. The aim is to bring together both manufacturers and users of RGA Instruments to discuss advances in techniques and applications for RGA. The meetings also provide an opportunity to exchange information and experiences in the use of RGA. Since 2010 these meetings have been included in the programme of the Vacuum Symposium UK.
