About Epitaxy 2019


To continue its success of last events at Budapest, Hungary (2016), Barcelona, Spain (2017) and Vienna, Austria (2018), the EMN Meeting on Epitaxy 2019 will be held from June 17 to 21, 2019 at Holiday Inn Amsterdam – Arena Towers in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. 

The paramount EMN Epitaxy 2019 will bring an opportunity for leading academic scientists, researchers and decision makers in the field of Epitaxy to get their latest discoveries acknowledged on the global arena, which will include topics of MBE, MOCVD, Atomic Layer Deposition, III-V Semiconductors, II-VI IV-VI IV Semiconductors and Oxides, Heterogeneous Epitaxy, 2D Materials, Superconductivity and Topological Insulator Materials, Photodetection and other epitaxy related topics.

It will continue for four days will take you to the voyage of knowledge providing you an opportunity to both collaborations and learn about the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in this broad field of epitaxy technology from all over the world, with emphasis on both the basic science as well as its applications in industry and academia. 

Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, is the country’s largest city and its financial, cultural, and creative center. Amsterdam derives its name from the city’s origin as “Dam” of river “Amstel”, it’s also the site of the present dam square. Amsterdam is colloquially known as Venice of the North because of its lovely canals that criss-cross the city, its impressive architecture and more than 1,500 bridges, there is something for every traveller’s taste here; whether you prefer culture and history, or just the relaxing charm of an old European city. Many famous attraction you can find here as a microcosm of the history of the Netherlands, including the long-standing canal network, the Dutch National Museum, the Van Gogh Museum, Anne’s House, etc. The meeting will be a few days of intense collaboration with great social occasions. 

We are looking forward to having the pleasure welcoming you to the EMN Epitaxy 2019 Amsterdam!
