3rd International Conference on ALD Applications & 2016 China ALD Conference

The city of Suzhou near Shanghai was the venue for the 3rd International Conference on ALD Applications & 2016 China ALD Conference, which took place on 16-19 October 2016.  Nearly 200 delegates attended, mostly from China, but also from Taiwan, Korea, Japan, India, Singapore, USA, Germany, Spain, UK, Finland, Ireland and the Netherlands. 

The conference was opened with keynote speeches from Prof Helmut Baumgart of Old Dominion University, USA, and Prof M. Hong of National Taiwan University.  Later on, the conference split into three parallel sessions of oral contributions.  Over 60 posters were presented and best student poster prizes were awarded at the closing session.

The HERALD Chair was kindly given an opportunity to present the network as a platform for collaboration between Europe and China, and there were discussions about what form a future international ALD network might take.

Picosun supported the conference as Platinum sponsors...


The workshop on hybrid materials by ALD or MLD on January 23-25 in San Sebastian (Spain) aims at bringing together researchers and industry that are already active or intend to launch activities in this research field. It will serve as a presentation and discussion platform, hopefully sparking new collaborations and business opportunities. In addition to the main scope of the workshop, we will dedicate a session to ALD or MLD activities on the Iberian Peninsula.
