Italian Crystal Growth Progress in Functional Materials Conference

November, 14-15, 2013 - Parma

Dear Colleagues, On behalf of the Conference Scientific Committee we cordially invite you to attend the Italian Crystal Growth New Frontiers in Functional Materials Conference which will be held in Parma at the Institute of Materials for Electronics and Magnetism (IMEM-CNR) on 14-15 November 2013. The aim of the Conference is to promote the meeting of researchers coming from public centers and industries to discuss problems related to the preparation of crystalline functional materials. The 2010 edition registered the participation of more than 120 researchers and the presentations of 80 scientific contributions. The Conference topics will be covered by the following scientific sessions: - Fundamentals in crystal growth: from bulk to surfaces - Material engineering for PhotoVoltaic conversion in the world of 1 $/W silicon panels - Organic and hybrid materials - Functional nanostructures - Nanoepitaxy We are looking forward to seeing in Parma many old friends and newcomers from all fields of crystal growth.
