The Training School on Chemical Basis of ALD will be a one-day event for early-career scientists during the 2nd International Workshop ‘Atomic Layer Deposition: Russia 2017’ held in St Petersburg, Russia.
At the training school local and invited speakers of the workshop will deliver a set of lectures on the chemical basis and practical applications of ALD.
The former topic deserves a dedicated lecture because it is largely under-represented in the literature, which describes ALD mainly from the methodological point of view. The Saint-Petersburg State Institute of Technology has a half-century tradition of experimental as well as computational studies on the chemical reactions that underlie ALD processes. Therefore, it seems a suitable venue to deliver this knowledge to young researchers interested in ALD.
On the other hand, presentations of various commercially successful applications of ALD by the world's leading experts will assist graduate students and young scientists in shaping their research trajectories and building international collaborations for the benefit of the field as a whole.
Participation in the training school is free of charge. Trainees from COST countries are eligible to apply for a partial reimbursement of travel expenses. The contact person for registration is Ivan Bodalyov.
The participants in the training school are encouraged to present their work at the International Workshop orally or as a poster, subject to the usual registration fee. Presentation abstracts will be included in the conference book. The results reported in oral and selected poster presentations will be eligible for publication as articles in special issues of peer-reviewed journals of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
