Workshop for emerging transition metal compounds


The second Belux workshop is organized the 17th and 18th November 2016 at imec in Belgium with the objective to spark synergy between modeling, deposition and characterization of emerging transition metal compounds for next generation technologies. Innovative materials are expected to enable novel device concepts and breakthrough ideas for future logic and memory applications. More about this event is to be found under:

A HERALD ECI network

To promote the next generation of ALD scientists and help them to establish themselves as research leaders in the ALD community, we have formed a network within HERALD for Early Career Investigators (ECIs). Broadening out the COST definition of ECI, we welcome investigators from within a year of submitting their PhD dissertation to PhD+10 years - however, these are not strict limits.

Our ambition is to run workshops where we meet to exchange ideas on career moves, grant applications and possible collaborations. In 2017 we are planning to organize a kickoff event at the Joint EuroCVD-BalticALD conference in Linköping 11-14 June, and a stand-alone workshop where we also invite some senior ALD scientists to give advice on how to establish oneself as an ALD scientist.
