Agenda

Surfaces play an important role in almost all aspects of our lives. Understanding and controlling surfaces and surface interactions can be critical to the success of many biomaterials including biosensors, bioimplants, and drug delivery constructs. It is critical to know as much as possible about a surface in order to both understand the interactions that occur and to be able to design surfaces that promote successful interactions. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) are two powerful surface analytical methods that have been proven to provide valuable, quantitative and spatial (mapping) information about both biomaterial surfaces as well as biological surfaces/interfaces. In order to maximize the information gained from these methods, it is important to not only understand how the tools work, but also how to properly handle and prepare samples and how to optimize an experimental plan.

Suppliers are increasingly being asked to deliver clean products to OEM companies (Original Equipment Manufacturer). Because there is a need for a definition of how clean the product must be, VCCN set up the Nano, Micro, Product Cleanliness project group in 2017. This working group consists of OEM companies, suppliers and knowledge companies. Soon after the working group started, there was a need to develop a guideline so that everyone speaks the same language with regard to product cleanliness. With the help of OEM companies, who set requirements for the cleanliness of the product, they are energetically working on drawing up VCCN Guideline 12.

In this mini-symposium, experts present the progress of VCCN Guideline 12 and provide substantive contributions. The speakers will be:

Koos Agricola, project manager VCCN Guideline 12
Philip van Beek, Contamination Q&A, VCCN
Max van de Berg, Festo
Rients de Groot, Thermo Fisher Scientific
Paul Krüsemann, Eurofins Material Science Netherlands B.V.
Freek Molkenboer, TNO
Olof Teulings, NTS Mechatronics
Dirk Trienekens, ASML Netherlands B.V.

The chairman of the day is Philip van Beek, co-initiator of the Nano, Micro, Product Cleanliness project group.

EVC is an international conference held every 3 years in Europe (every 2 years before 2018) which aims at gathering researchers from University, Industry and Technical Centers to present and discuss the current state of progress in the field of vacuum sciences and technologies.
EVC is organized by the French Vacuum Society (SFV) and Aix Marseille University (AMU), with the endorsement of ITER, located nearby Marseille.
This five-day event will bring together leading experts in Vacuum Sciences and Technologies (chemistry, physics, mechanics, biology, interface durability...) and other professionals for exchanges through lectures and posters.
The IUVSTA-Elsevier Awards are designed to give partial financial support to four postgraduate research students within seven years of obtaining their first degree at the start of the congress to help them to attend EVC-16 conference at which they are presenting a paper.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Marseille for EVC-16 at 2021. Please save the date!
The AVS 21st International Conference on Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD 2021) featuring the 8th International Atomic Layer Etching Workshop (ALE 2021) will be a three-day meeting dedicated to the science and technology of atomic layer controlled deposition of thin films and now topics related to atomic layer etching. Since 2001, the ALD conference has been held alternately in the United States, Europe and Asia, allowing fruitful exchange of ideas, know-how and practices between scientists. This year, the ALD conference will again incorporate the Atomic Layer Etching 2021 Workshop (ALE 2021), so that attendees can interact freely. The conference will take place Sunday, June 27-Wednesday, June 30, 2021, at the JW Marriott Tampa Water Street in Tampa, Florida.
BSBF 2021 is a business oriented congress which congregates all the European Research Infrastructures, focused on technology and with the aim to be the main meeting point between Research Infrastructures and industry.

This will be the second edition of the event after the success of the previous edition in Copenhagen, where more than 1,000 participants from more than 500 organisations and 29 countries gathered together to discuss the future prospects of the Big Science Market.
The AVS International Symposium and Exhibition has been developed to address cutting-edge issues associated with vacuum science and technology in both the research and manufacturing communities. The Symposium is a week long forum for science and technology exchange featuring papers from technical divisions and technology groups, and topical conferences on emerging technologies. The equipment exhibition is one of the largest in the world and provides an excellent opportunity to view the latest products and services offered by over 200 participating companies. More than 3,000 scientists and engineers gather from around the world to attend. Short courses are offered in conjunction with the International Symposium providing specialized training in specific areas of vacuum science and related technologies. A Career Workshop and Job Center are also offered to all attendees. The Workshop covers such topics as résumé preparation, job search skills, networking, interviewing skills, and more. The Job Center provides the opportunity for job seekers to submit their résumés and meet with potential employers.
