25 - 28 September, 2018 | International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL), Braga, Portugal
Abstracts deadline  30th June 2018


The HERALD Summit will be the premier European conference in 2018 devoted solely to atomic level processing, covering atomic layer deposition (ALD), atomic layer etch and related nano fabrication techniques. As the final meeting of the HERALD COST Action, the three-day Summit will include detailed discussions on the research achievements of HERALD and on future opportunities for collaboration, both within Europe and worldwide. Ongoing projects and new funding proposals will be promoted so as to continue to build the ALD community. The HERALD Summit will take place in Braga, Portugal from 25-28 September 2018.

HERALD Summit is an international event open to all interested participants.


The main topics will give a good overview of the areas of science for atomic level controlled processing.

TOPIC 1: Mechanism, metrology and modelling ALD mechanisms.

TOPIC 2: Precursors and novel processes for ALD of inorganic materials and of organic-inorganic hybrid films (molecular layer deposition).

TOPIC 3: Surfaces and interfaces: nucleation, 2D materials, selective area ALD.

TOPIC 4: Devices: integrating ALD processes for oxides, sulfides and nitrides
