The Fifth International Conference on Solid State Crystals and Eighth Polish Conference on Crystal Growth (ICSSC-5 & PCCG-8) continues traditions of both ICSSC and PCCG Conferences. PCCG-8 is a national meeting of the crystal growth community of Poland and is organized by the Polish Society for Crystal Growth (PSCG). The Conference is directed toward exchange of recent developments in crystal growth in Poland and in other countries. Therefore, PCCG-8 has many lecturers and participants from abroad. At the same time, the Conference follows the tradition of the International Solid State Crystal Conferences which, being international, is directed toward development of basic research and applications in optoelectronics. Therefore it has strong bias toward optoelectronics with emphasis on the exchange of recent results and the latest developments in this area worldwide.
See First Circular.
ICSSC-5 & PCCG-8 Conference will be concentrated to the two main subjects: Crystal growth and Optoelectronics. The growth part is devoted to varius aspects of crystal growth:
