17th International Conference on Crystal Growth and Epitaxy - ICCGE-17
The 17th International Conference on Crystal Growth and Epitaxy (ICCGE-17) will be held in Warsaw, Poland on August 11-16, 2013. The venue will be the main campus of the University of Warsaw established in 1816, which is Poland's largest and finest university. The main campus of the University consists of palatial-style buildings as well as a very modern glass-steel library, with a roof garden. This unique atmosphere will help to make the participation in the conference both comfortable and fruitful. ICCGE-17 will provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of recent research and development activities in all aspects of bulk crystal growth and epitaxial thin film growth, with sessions including fundamentals, experimental and industrial growth processes, characterization and applications. The technical programme will include both oral and poster sessions, as well as plenary and invited talks to provide a complete picture of the latest developments in the field. The official language of the conference will be English. The conference proceedings will be reviewed and published in a special volume of Journal of Crystal Growth.

Abstract submission deadline:
15 April 2013
31 March 2013
To submit an abstract, please register an log in to the conference site. Then follow to the on-line editor at "Abstracts -> New abstract".
Abstracts should be about 1-2 pages. Please use only jpg and png image files.
Abstracts can not be send by e-mail.
Saving an abstract in the system is equivalent to submitting it. Every abstract available through the "Abstracts" menu in a user's profile is submitted.
There are problems appearing when the title and body of an abstract are cut and pasted directly from MS Office documents. In particular ICCGE-17 web text editor returns a message that the title is too long, which is actually not the case. The problem is due to the invisible formatting tags that some versions of MS Word produce, and actually makes the title of the abstract much longer than expected. In order to avoid such problems we recommend to copy&paste the text from MS Office to Notepad first, then copy&paste from Notepad to ICCGE-17 text editor. This procedure can be used both for the title and for the body of the abstract. Then check the abstract again and correct sub/superscripts and special symbols if needed (the abstract editor provides special buttons).
Posters should be A0 format.

Due to technical problems with credit cards, we will only accept payments by money transfers. Credit card payment is no longer supported.
We are extremely sorry for the confusion, which we have caused. We understand that it is particularly unfortunate, as these problems occurred near the deadline of the Early Bird Fee.
Therefore we extend the Early Bird Fee deadline to 16th June. The deadline denotes the time when the money is sent from the particpant's account. Thus the money may arrive at the Organizers account later.
The Conference fee is 2200 PLN (Polish zloty) for regular
participants and 1500 PLN for students if paid before 16th Jun 2013
31st May 2013. After this deadline the fee is 2500 PLN
for regular participants and 1800 PLN for students. In order to get the
fee reduction the students have to present their university ID at the
Conference registration desk.
The fee for the accompanying person is 1500 PLN. It includes:
Conference fees are independent (no relation) from the fee 1500 PLN for the accompanying person.
Alternatively the fee could be also paid on arrival in cash with an additional cost of 300 PLN.
In case of cancellation of participation in the conference, please have in mind our Cancellation Policy:
The conference venue is located in the capital city of Poland – Warsaw. This is Poland’s largest city, which nurtures over 400 years of pride as a capital, and moreover as an economic, political, and cultural centre. The symbol of the city is the Mermaid, featured on the city seal. Warsaw is a bustling metropolis and features an unforgettable history. One fourth of the city is covered by parkland. Above all, it is a city of culture, easily reachable in the centre of Europe. The conference venue is the University of Warsaw located close to the City Old Town, and the city centre. A wide range of hotels nearby will provide accommodation to suit every pocket. Very convenient and cheap accommodation will be offered to students and other needy participants in the University’s dormitories. Warsaw is located not far from UNESCO heritage sites as Zelazowa Wola – Chopin’s birthplace; Cracow; and Wieliczka – an exciting and unique salt mine. You can enjoy summer evening life at the Warsaw Old Town, restful atmosphere of the Royal Baths Park – Lazienki; and try a special hot chocolate at Wedel.

of public transport connections in Warszawa
Tips: for a conference venue, use the street address Krakowskie Przedmieście 26/28 ; this engine accepts some common places, like Warsaw Chopin Airport. For Central Railway Station in downtown use its Polish name PKP Warszawa Centralna.
transport tickets in Warszawa
To freely travel by public transport, we suggest buying a 3-day ticket. Note it should be validated in a bus/tram/subway gate on first use. Unfortunately there is no 7-day ticket in Warszawa. Unless you want to travel beyond city limits, it is enough to purchase tickets for zone 1 (pol. strefa 1).
