Call for Papers on ALD & ALE Applications, at ECS Fall Meeting / Gothenburg Oct. 2023 ►►DEADLINE EXPIRES APRIL 21◄◄

Call for Papers on ALD & ALE Applications, at ECS Fall Meeting / Gothenburg Oct. 2023 ►►DEADLINE EXPIRES APRIL 21◄◄

The Electrochemical Society (ECS) conference is an international event running every spring and fall, and gathering 2000-4000 participants and 30-40 exhibitors both from academia and industry.

The conference has a strong focus on emerging technology and applications in both electrochemistry and solid-state science & technology.

This fall the event will be held as 244th ECS Meeting on Oct. 8-12, 2023 in Gothenburg (Sweden).

The full program as well as information on travel assistance for students can be found on


The organizers of symposium G01 on “Atomic Layer Deposition & Etching Applications, 19” encourage you to submit your abstracts on the following (and closely related) topics:


1.   Semiconductor CMOS applications: development and integration of ALD high-k oxides and metal electrodes with conventional and high-mobility channel materials;

2.   Volatile and non-volatile memory applications: extendibility, Flash, MIM, MIS, RF capacitors, etc.;

3.   Interconnects and contacts: integration of ALD films with Cu and low-k materials;

4.   Fundamentals of ALD processing: reaction mechanisms, in-situ measurement, modeling, theory;

5.   New precursors and delivery systems;

6.   Optical and photonic applications;

7.   Coating of nanoporous materials by ALD;

8.   MLD and hybrid ALD/MLD;

9.   ALD for energy conversion applications such as fuel cells, photovoltaics, etc.;

10. ALD for energy storage applications;

11. Productivity enhancement, scale-up and commercialization of ALD equipment and processes for rigid and flexible substrates, including roll-to-roll deposition;

12. Area-selective ALD;

13. Atomic Layer Etching (‘reverse ALD’) and related topics aiming at self-limited etching, such as atomic layer cleaning, etc.


Abstract submission

Meeting abstracts should be submitted not later than the deadline of April 21, 2023 via the ECS website: Abstract submission instruction
