The biennial conference series on Extended Defects in Semiconductors started with a meeting in Hünfeld, Germany, in 1978. Subsequent meetings took place in France, Greece, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Poland, and Russia. EDS conferences are known for excellent presentations and lively discussions in a stimulating scientific atmosphere.

Scope and Topics
Scope of the conference
Semiconductors have become a cornerstone of today's economy, and are thought to remain so in the future, with extended applications in energy production, conversion and storage, as well as lighting and data transmission.
This development relies both on the improvement of today's processing techniques for known intelligent technologies (IT - mainly Si-based) but also on the development of new materials such as GaN diodes (laser and LEDs), Diamond or SiC (power electronics), III-V and II-VI materials (opto-electronic components) and Graphene, and 2D materials (next generation semiconductors)….
One of the key factor in establishing or not such development is the ability to produce defect-free substrates or structures to make them compatible with large-scale production technologies.
The scope of the Extended Defects in Semiconductors (EDS) Conference is to bring together experts on fundamental and applied research to establish a state of the art evaluation of the studies about individual defect and microstructures in semiconductors. This will be done both through the viewpoints of characterization techniques (X-Ray, Transmission and Scanning Electron Microscopy, Ion Microscopy, Infra Red Microscopy, Neutrons…..), simulation methods (Molecular Dynamics, Ab Initio, Finite Elements…) and theoretical approaches.

Abstract submission is opened till April 29th.
Please note that the abstract template can be found at the 3rd step of the submission procedure as shown in the screen copy below :
Registration will be opened from May 15th, 2016 to July 15th, 2016
Program will be posted early May 2016
Articles will be processed in a special issue of Materials Today Proceedings. They will undergo a regular reviewing process. Publication of the special issue is targeting the first months of 2017. A hard deadline for submission will be set one month after the end of the conference. Open access will be available for authors at a cost of $125.
Registration fees will be all-inclusive (meals and rooms, on site):
Registration deadline extended
Due to delayed VISA procedures the registration deadline has been extended till August 20th, 2016. After this date, late registrations are absolutely not guaranteed as the room count of the conference site will be closed.
As a reminder, the registration to the conference includes the nights and meals from Sun 25th to Friday 30th morning.
