About Conference

The 19th International Conference on Metalorganic Vapor Phase Epitaxy (ICMOVPE-XIX) will be held in Nara, Japan, from June 3 to 8, 2018. This conference builds upon the strong tradition of previous conferences of presenting the latest advances in science, technology and application of MOVPE and related growth techniques. The objective of the conference is to bring together a wide spectrum of specialists from Industry, Commerce, Academia, and National Laboratories to present their most recent progress in the fundamental and applied aspects of MOVPE technology. The program is designed to provide a wide range of opportunities for formal and informal discussions of and presentations on all topics.


Format of the Conference

The conference consists of plenary sessions and a series of two parallel oral sessions including both invited and contributed presentations. Poster sessions, rump sessions, banquet, excursion, and industrial exhibition will be also included.
