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

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: 17 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.

Please take note of the poster submission deadline: 17 May 2017

Our poster boards can accommodate a maximum poster size of A0 (1189H x 841W mm), portrait in orientation. Posters exceeding this size may not fit on the poster boards provided and therefore we may be unable to display your poster, so please kindly keep to these measurements.

Displaying & Presenting Your Poster

During conference registration if you are presenting a poster please request a poster number from the registration desk. Please do not put up your poster without notifying a member of the Fusion team. Certain adhesive agents are not permitted at some venues therefore; Fusion will be the sole provider of all poster fixings.

You can display your poster from registration. Your poster can remain on display for the entire duration of the conference and we ask that posters are taken down on the final day of the meeting. The poster session is usually scheduled on Day 3, but please check the official programme for exact timings. Refreshments will be provided and the poster prizes will be awarded during the conference Gala Night that evening.

2017 OTF Poster Prize

The conference chairs will be awarding 3 poster prizes for the best poster display and presentation. To be in with a chance of winning, submit your poster by 17 May 2017. The winners will be selected shortly after the Poster Session and the following prizes will be awarded: 1st Place £250, 2nd Place £150, 3rd Place £100.
