Manuscript Submission Open: March 2, 2018.
Deadline for Manuscript Submission: June 2, 2018.

The Proceedings will be published as a special issue of the journal, CRYS -Journal of Crystal Growth. The journal offers a common reference and publication source for workers engaged in research on the experimental and theoretical aspects of crystal growth and its applications, e.g. in devices. Experimental and theoretical contributions are published in the following fields:

  • Fundamental Studies and Modeling of Epitaxial Processes
  • Wide-Bandgap Group-III Nitride Materials and Devices (AlN, GaN, InN, BN, etc.)
  • III-V Semiconductors and Devices (Arsenides, Phosphides, Antimonides and Dilute Nitrides)
  • Narrow Bandgap Materials and Devices (InAs, Antimonides, Bismides)
  • II-VI Materials and Devices (CdTe, ZnO, ZnSe, ZnS, MCT, etc.)
  • IV-IV Materials and Devices using Metalorganic Precursors (SiC, SiGe, GeSn, etc.)
  • Semiconducting Oxides and Epitaxial Dielectrics (TCO, Ga2O3, SnO2, etc.)
  • Epitaxy of High-Temperature Superconductive Materials
  • Epitaxy of 2D Materials and van der Waal Heterostructures
  • Heteroepitaxy of Mismatched Alloys and III-Vs on Si
  • Growth of Nanowires, Nanostructures and Low-dimensional Structures (Dots, Wires and Quantum Wells)
  • Patterned Growth and Selective Area Epitaxy
  • Atomic Layer Deposition and Epitaxy
  • Pseudo-substrates and Epitaxial Lift-off Processes
  • In Situ Monitoring, Process Control and Reactor Modeling
  • In Situ Etching
  • Nano-scale Characterization and Other Techniques
  • Point Defects and Doping
  • Growth for Energy Technology (Solid State Lighting, Photovoltaics, Power Devices, Thermoelectrics, etc.)
  • Equipment, Safety, Environmental and Production Issues including Low-cost MOVPE


Manuscript submission will be open on March 2nd, 2018.

The proceedings using virtual special issues publish all papers in the first available regular issue and simultaneously papers appear in a new section on virtual special issues. It offers a reduction of publication times for special issues.

Authors of papers accepted for poster or oral presentations are invited to submit manuscripts for consideration for publication. The length of papers in the Proceedings is limited to six printed pages for invited papers and four printed pages for regular contributed papers. Attendance at the conference is required for inclusion in the Proceedings.

Formatting instructions:

Please follow the formatting recommendations on the Elsevier author instructions website. All manuscripts will be subject to the review process; submissions will be rejected if they do not describe original, unpublished work or are not of high quality. A single printed column (text only) in the Journal of Crystal Growth is approximately 480 words. Please keep the page length limit (4 pages - regular contribution, 6 pages - invited) in mind when preparing your manuscript. Manuscripts exceeding the page limit will not be included in the proceedings.

Submission instructions:

Please submit manuscripts using the Elsevier Editorial System located at: and select "ICMOVPE XIX". ONLY Electronic submissions are accepted.
