EuroCVD/BalticALD 2019 host 4th Early Career Investigator workshop

Dear HERALD Members,

it is my pleasure to announce that the  4th Early Career Investigator (ECI) workshop will take place as a satellite event of the EuroCVD/BalticALD 2019 in Luxembourg.

The topic is “Boosting your Creativity and Efficiency as a Group” and is provided by an external company. Theory will be brought to life by practical exercises in small groups to ensure a memorable experience that find its way into daily work. Do not miss that!

All young researchers are cordially invited to join the event that will take place on Friday afternoon after the conference. Please consider this when planning your travels.

Details can be found at

If you are interested, please make sure to register/update your registration! (In step 3 of the conference registration, there will be a box to be checked for participation in the ECI event.)

Note: The participation is limited to 40 people....


It is our great pleasure to announce the “International Conference on Condensed Matter and Materials Science-2019 (ICCMMS-19)” to be held in Çukurova University, Adana, Turkey, at 14-19 October, 2019.

The conference is open to all researchers and graduate students from all the countries. The purpose of the conference is to provide a platform for researchers and graduate students in the areas identified in Condensed Physics and Materials Science to publicize their ongoing research work through oral and poster presentations. The aim of the oral and poster presentation is to encourage the young researchers and students to research and practice on giving presentations. In this way, the young researchers and graduate students will have the opportunity to interact with their peers and publicize and get feedback on their work, exchange experiences, make contacts, and learn what other researchers are doing in the Condensed Matter Physics and Material Sciences.


4th Area Selective Deposition Workshop

ASM and IMEC are proud to announce that the 4th Area Selective Deposition (ASD) Workshop will be held on April 4th – 5th, 2019 in IMEC, Leuven (Belgium).

Based on a series of successful workshops at North Carolina State University in 2018, Eindhoven University of Technology in 2017, and imec in 2016, the 4th ASD workshop will bring together leading experts from both academia and industry to share their vision and results about area selective deposition research and applications, on topics such as:

  • Area selective epitaxy and area selective chemical vapor deposition
  • Intrinsic selectivity of ALD processes
  • Methods for area selective activation / deactivation
  • Processes and mechanisms for area selective atomic layer deposition
  • Metrology and defects control
  • Applications of area selective deposition

On behalf of the organizing committee, it will be our pleasure to welcome you in Leuven.

Andrea Illiberi

Program Chair of the 4th ASD workshop

ALD Academy on Nucleation and Area-Selective Deposition

There will be an ALD Academy on Nucleation and Area-Selective Deposition at Eindhoven University of Technology on April 3, 2019, the day before the 4th Area Selective Deposition workshop (ASD2019) in Leuven, Belgium ( For those interested in both events, there will be transportation from Eindhoven to Leuven.

Area-selective deposition (ASD) has recently developed into an active field of research in both academia and industry, triggered by the fact that alignment is becoming a bottleneck in semiconductor fabrication. Especially area-selective atomic layer deposition (ALD) is acquiring attention for implementation in self-aligned fabrication schemes. This development builds on earlier successes in the fields of selective epitaxy and area-selective chemical vapor deposition (CVD). Besides nanoelectronics, ASD is expected to enable bottom-up fabrication in catalysis, energy generation and storage.

This ALD Academy is an introduction to ASD, and addresses fundamental aspects related to initial growth, nucleation mechanisms and...

Joint International Conference EuroCVD 22-Baltic ALD 16

The EuroCVD 22-Baltic ALD 16 Conference, organized by the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), will take place in Luxembourg on 24-28 June 2019.
The conference will offer a high-quality scientific programme with invited and contributed lectures in key development areas based on chemical processing from the gas phase.
The submission of extended abstracts is open up to the 21st of January 2019 via the tool available on the conference website (

Deadline for the submission of extended abstract (31 January) is approaching.


The main session will address technology perspectives that are common to participants with different backgrounds: CVD or ALD specialists, physicists or chemists, experts or early career researchers, fundamental/applied scientists or industrial researchers. Each of these sessions will be introduced by an invited presentation from a pioneer in the field.

Simulation and in situ monitoring to generate theoretical models,...
