Welcome to ICCGE-19 / OMVPE-19 / ISSCG-17 to be held in Keystone, Colorado, USA from July 28 - August 2, 2019.
On behalf of the organizing committee, the American Association for Crystal Growth (AACG) and the International Organization for Crystal Growth (IOCG), we are honored to host all of you at the 19th International Conference on Crystal Growth and Epitaxy (ICCGE-19) to be held jointly with the 19th US Biennial Workshop on Organometallic Vapor Phase Epitaxy (OMVPE-19) and the 17th International Summer School on Crystal Growth (ISSCG-17).
ICCGE/OMVPE-19 will provide sessions for presentation and discussion regarding recent research and development activities in all aspects of crystal growth, epitaxy, characterization and applications including both general sessions and special topical symposia. The latter will include the Fourth 2D Electronic Materials Symposium, the Second Symposium on Epitaxy of Complex Oxides and the Second Symposium on Ferroelectric Crystals and Textured Ceramics.
ICCGE-19 is the latest in a sequence that started with ICCG-1 in Boston, MA, USA in 1966, which marked the formation of the crystal growth community as an independent discipline rather than subsidiary to a number of other fields. The key principle is that the theory and practice of crystal growth is common across a range of materials and applications and that we have much to share with one another.
The OMVPE-19 workshop continues a tradition, started at Cornell in 1983, of bringing together specialists in the OMVPE field from industry, academia and government laboratories in an informal atmosphere and scenic surroundings. The workshop is an excellent opportunity to present and discuss new results in the OMVPE field. It also provides a venue for newcomers to the field to familiarize themselves with OMVPE science and technology.
The conferences are composed of cross-cutting and cutting-edge science and technology. Participants are encouraged to move about this technical landscape to maximize interaction with their personal interests. The technical program will include both oral and poster sessions, as well as plenary, invited and award talks. We intend to make this another excellent opportunity to advance the science and technology of crystal growth, epitaxy, characterization, and applications, and to gather old and new friends, colleagues and business associates. The official language of the conference is English. The conference proceedings will be reviewed and published in a special issue of Journal of Crystal Growth.
The conference will observe a policy of non-discrimination and affirms the right and freedom of scientists to associate in international scientific activity without regard to such factors as ethnic origin, religion, citizenship, language, political stance, gender, sex or age, in accordance with the Statutes of the International Council for Science. At this meeting no barriers will be made by the conference organizers or the venue that would prevent the participation of bona fide scientists.
Foreign participants are encouraged to apply for their visas as early as possible — at least four to five months before the meeting. Some consulates may have backlogs in scheduling visa interviews. Therefore, applicants should first consult the U.S. Department of State’s visa appointment and processing wait times website. If you require a Visa Support Letter Request from the conference, please see the information on the Visa Support Letter Request tab on the Attendees drop-down menu. Further information on business visas can be found at the U.S. Department of State Business Visa Center website
This will be the fourth crystal growth conference held at the Keystone Resort and Conference Center and we have really perfected enjoying this beautiful venue and its surroundings. The Keystone area on the front range of the Rockies has a mountain climate that is temperate in the summer. Keystone has numerous summer activities for all ages and activity levels with hiking, historic tours, shopping, fishing, golf, horseback riding, gondola rides, white water rafting, spa activities and wonderful western cuisine. We look forward to seeing you there.
