The German Association of Crystal Growth DGKK and the Swiss Society for Crystallography organize the 5th German Swiss Conference on Crystal Growth GSCCG-5/DKT 2017 which will take place from March 08 to 10, 2017 in Freiburg, Germany.

It continues a series of joint conferences between the German and Swiss colleagues (1972, 1974, 1975, 1982), focusing on current topics of research and development in the field of crystal growth and epitaxy.

The topics of the conference include:

  • Silicon and Germanium

  • Compound semiconductor materials

  • Oxides and intermetallics

  • Novel materials

  • Bioinspired materials

  • Nucleation of nanoparticles

  • Mesocrystals and Nonclassical Crystallization

The program will include invited and contributed oral and poster presentations, an industrial exhibition, and an open forum discussion allowing a fruitful exchange between industrial and scientific participants. Furthermore, the winner of the Young Scientist Award of DGKK will be announced.

Before GSCCG-5/DKT 2017 the young crystal growers of the “jDGKK” will hold their 6th seminar to which also the young Swiss scientists and students are cordially invited. We invite you to join our conference in the beautiful city of Freiburg at the base of the Black Forest and will welcome your application for participation.
