Introduction

The 25th International Vacuum Nanoelectronics Conference Jeju, Korea
July 9th (Mon) ~ 13th (Fri), 2012


The 25th International Vacuum Nanoelectronics Conference 2012 (IVNC 2012) will be held in Jeju island, Korea on July 9th (Mon) ~ 13th (Fri), 2012. During conference, over 200 scientists and engineers from all over the world will report and discuss their recent research interest on vacuum micro and nanoelectronics. The topics will include the theory, fabrication, and characterization of vacuum micro/nanoelectronic materials and devices with applications to x-ray sources, lamps, information displays, microwave amplifiers, plasma devices, analytical instruments, satellites, e-beam sources, particle accelerators and sensors.

The conference will have a four-day program which consists of plenary talks, invited talks, contributed talks and poster sessions. Especially, to encourage young scientists, several awards will be given to young researchers for outstanding contributions.

Jeju island, the largest island in Korea, was enrolled to the UNESCO heritage for its unique and beautiful natural scenery. Beautiful beaches, waterfalls, cliffs and caves lie in harmony, and the mild weather makes Jeju an even more ideal tourist destination. Palm trees and other tropical plants make the famous and unique scenery of Jeju. The eruption of Mt. Halla that took place approximately 25 thousand years ago created the crater lake and Baekrok-dam at the summit of the mountain. Especially, Jeju island provides very delicious sea foods from the clean Pacific sea.

Jeju island can be easily reached from Incheon/Seoul airport by flight for 40 min and also directly connected by a airplane from Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Taipei.

The conference will be held at the Hyatt Hotel Jeju in the south beach of Jeju island. It is convenient to access from Jeju international airport by a limousine bus or a taxi for 1 hr. Near the conference venue, within 15 min walk, there are several hotels, pensions, resort accommodations, boutiques and restaurants.

We hope to see you all at the IVNC 2012.

Sincerely,
IVNC 2012 Conference Chairman
Professor Cheol Jin Lee
