    WOCSDICE 2018

    Workshop on Compound Semiconductor Devices and Integrated Circuits held in Europe

    Read More »


EXMATEC 2018 is the continuation of successful, biannual meetings, first started in Lyon, France (1992) and previously held in many places in Europe such as Parma, Freiburg, Cardiff, Heraklion, Budapest, Cadiz, Lodz, Darmstadt, Porquerolles, Delphi and Aveiro.
Contributions fall within the scope of EXMATEC as long as they treat issues of material fabrication, characterization and processing of compound semiconductors. Works on devices are also appropriate in this context.
The central topics are development, improvement and application of new and advanced methods in the fabrication and evaluation of compound (III-V, III-N) and Si, SiGe semiconductors, Two-Dimensional Layered (2D)materials and structures to develop understanding of the interrelationship between structural, electrical and other material properties and device characteristics, such as performance, reliability, reproducibility, lifetime, yield, etc. The conference topics apply to all (2D) semiconductor materials, related structures and processing. Despite of the European character of the workshop series, interested people from all over the world are invited to attend.



  • III-Vs, III-Ns, II-VIs, SiC, SiGe
  • 2D MATERIALS (physics, technologies and devices)
  • RELIABILITY ISSUES (physics of failure and degradation mechanisms)
  • PHOTOVOLTAICS (Materials & Technology)


Important dates:

March 2, 2018: Short or Long (preferred) Abstract submission deadline
March 23, 2018: Notification of acceptance and opening of registration
April 6, 2018: Long Abstract submission deadline
April 16, 2018: Deadline for registration and Confirmation of participation.

Instructions for Authors

Authors wishing to present a paper should submit a maximum two-page “long” abstract (text and figures) - TEMPLATE.
The accepted papers will be distributed to the workshop participants on USB flash-drives.
A “short” 100-word abstract may be submitted by March 2, 2018. This must, however, be followed by the “long” two-page camera-ready version by April 6, 2018. This option will ensure that their latest results can be included in the workshop proceedings.
