Scope of the Summer School

E-mail Print

The 14th International Summer School on Crystal Growth will be held on August 1st-7th, 2010 at Dalian, China. 

ISSCG-14, as usual, aims to provide comprehensive lectures in different areas of crystallization. Lectures by leading researchers will encompass the fundamentals and recent improvements on crystal growth. A textbook based on the lectures will be published before the School is started, and will be provided to attendees without additional charge. 

The level of the school is intended for post-graduate and post-doctoral students as well as fresh researchers all over the world. Researchers new to crystal growth as well as experts are encouraged to attend.

The format of the School is designed to encourage interaction between lectures and attendees. Informal discussion of student research through posters is planned during extended coffee breaks. In additional, several social activities will provide opportunities for discussions.

Technical programs will be updated soon.

Publication of School Lectures
The lectures presented at the Summer School will be published in a textbook. All the information about the publication will be updated.
