The 15th International Summer School on Crystal Growth will be held August 4 -10, 2013 at the Gdansk University of Technology in Gdansk, Poland. Following tradition, the School will be organized during the week prior to the 17th International Conference on Crystal Growth in Warsaw, Poland. The objective of the School is to provide a comprehensive series of lectures on theoretical and experimental aspects of crystal growth and characterization of semiconducting, oxide, metallic, organic, and biological crystals. Lectures by leading researchers will encompass crystal growth processes, nanocrystallization, in-situ and exsitu characterization, properties, and applications. The level of the school is intended for post-graduate and post-doctoral students as well as for researchers from industry and academia who are interested in fundamental knowledge of crystal growth and epitaxy. Researchers new to crystal growth as well as experts are encouraged to attend.
