3rd Functional Oxide Thin Films for Advanced Energy and Information Technology Conference

05 Jul 2017 - 08 Jul 2017

Rome, Italy

Synopsis

Following the success of the first and second OTF conferences in Chicago and Cancun, which took place in July 2014 and March 2015, we are delighted to be organising a third series.

Complex oxide thin films are finding applications in a wide range of energy and information technologies, including electron and ion conductors, photovoltaics, thermoelectrics, dielectrics, and resistive switching. Irrespective of whether single thin films or more sophisticated multilayered systems are employed, each of these technologies requires a thorough knowledge of the oxide physicochemical properties, its interactions with the environment and the role of defect/interface/boundary effects that might stem between film and substrate, layers with different compositions or even simply from the grain boundaries. Whilst depending on the technology area the key properties might be different, many of the materials optimization strategies may be common. Therefore, we believe that the discussion between diverse and even complementary researchers’ communities can be extremely beneficial for a better understanding of the crucial aspects that need to be addressed to improve materials properties. The purpose of this meeting is hence to foster the exchange of ideas between the relevant energy and information themes with the overall aim of sparking extensive discussions of the advances that materials physics and chemistry can make in thin film applications.

Key Sessions

  1. Engineering and control of defects in complex oxides
  2. Fabrication and synthesis of oxide thin films and heterostructures
  3. Advanced characterization techniques for thin films
  4. Electronic and ionic transport in oxide thin films
  5. Magnetism and dielectric properties in oxide thin films
  6. Nanoionic and nanoelectronic oxide thin films: Towards application
  7. Thin film oxides in energy conversion and storage applications
  8. Thin film oxides in information technology

Location Details

The Sheraton Roma is ideally situated in the green EUR Monumental neighbourhood, between the ancient city centre and Fiumicino Airport, providing an ideal location for all conference attendees to enjoy the magnificent historical and cultural sites this ancient and beautiful city has to offer.

Just a short taxi or bus ride, no more than 6 miles,  will take you to the majestic Colosseum, Sistine Chapel, Vatican City, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Spanish Steps and the numerous wondrous museums and gardens. 

Fiumicino Airport is just 13 miles (21km) from the Sheraton Roma and Ciampino Airport 11.8 miles (19km) with the drive time approximately 20 minutes.

Transport

Fiumicino Airport is just 13 miles (21km) from the Sheraton Roma and Ciampino Airport 11.8 miles (19km) with the drive time approximately 20 minutes. Both airports are easily accessible from almost every country in the world with many major international airlines providing direct or interconnecting flights on a daily basis. 

Private Airport Transfers

RydeItaly are a reputable and trustworthy transportation company based in Rome. The RydeItaly team will be available 24/7 to provide a seamless transfer service to and from both Fiumicino and Ciampino Airports.

Oral Presenters

Talk Deadline: 25 Jan 2017

We have a number of oral opportunities available at this meeting. To be considered for a talk, please register for the conference and you will be able to submit your abstract online and monitor the status of your abstract through your Fusion account. Please use the abstract template provided and ensure your abstract is no longer than one page in length. Any abstracts exceeding this size may be cut short during print.

Please check the conference programme carefully to note your presentation time (inclusive of Q&A) should you be accepted for an oral presentation. We recommend you check our website regularly as the conference approaches. Regular programme updates will be released under the ‘Programme’ tab on the conference page.

Your Presentation on the Day

If you have prepared some slides to accompanying your talk please ensure you bring these with you on a USB or portable file saving device.

For those presenting on the first day, please email your slides to us so we can have everything prepared and ready for the first session. Please email your slides to: admin@fusion-conferences.com

On the day of your presentation please make yourself known to the AV team who will be available in the conference room. If you have any animations or videos we do advise to run through the presentation with the AV tech to make sure everything is compatible. We also advise that all speakers make themselves known to the AV tech in the conference room immediately before your session beings. The AV tech will apply your microphone and provide a laser pointer should you have an accompanying presentation. We prefer speakers to use our master laptop to run presentations from, however, if you prefer to use your own laptop, please notify us in advance.

It is important that all speakers adhere to their presentation time and respect their fellow presenters. A visual traffic light aide will be available to warn presenters and the audience as your time decreases.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to approach our AV tech or a member of the Fusion team.

Helpful Tips for Presentation Slides

Aspect Ratio: On Screen Show (16:9) and in Landscape Orientation.
Font Size: Minimum font size used should be 24pt. 
File Type: Please save your presentation in PPT or PPTS format. 
Video Clips: Please save these separately and do not build them into the PowerPoint. Videos will be played via the AV control desk using the master laptop.

Poster Deadline: 31 May 2017

We have a number of poster opportunities available at this meeting. To be considered for a poster presentation, please register for the conference and you will be able to submit your abstract online and monitor the status of your abstract through your Fusion account. Please use the abstract template provided and ensure your abstract is no longer than one page in length. Any abstracts exceeding this size may be cut short during print.
