We are glad to inform that the United Conference IVESC-ICEE-ICCTPEA-BDO-2014, which took place from June 30 to July 04, 2014 in Saint-Petersburg on the basis of the hotel Park Inn Pribaltiyskaya Congress center (Korablestroiteley street, 14), was a complete success.
The 10th International Vacuum Electron Sources Conference – IVESC-2014 will be combined with the 2nd International Conference on Emission Electronics – ICEE-2014, with the International Conference on Computer Technologies in Physical and Engineering Applications – ICCTPEA-2014 and with the 20th International Workshop on Beam Dynamics and Optimization – BDO-2014.
The conferences were held by St.Petersburg State University under supervision and support of IVESC International Steering Committee, St.Petersburg State Polytechnical University, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology State University, Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), Kotel’nikov Institute of Radio Engineering and Electronics of RAS, Scientific Council of RAS on Physical Electronics, Scientific Council of RAS on Relativistic and High-Current Electronics, IEEE Russia Northwest Section, American Vacuum Society, Interregional Innovative development Center “INNO-MIR”, Russian Foundation for Basic Research and other organizations.
These joined conferences extended the view of key points in technology of electron cathodes and guns (applications of vacuum electron sources; new materials, incl. nano-materials - their production, processing and modern equipment), and gave the opportunity to know about recent results in physics of electron emission (field, thermo-, photo-, secondary, and explosive electron emission, as well as photoelectron spectroscopy), and also about electron beam modeling and optimization, research, development and application of modern computer sciences for applied technical and physical problems.
Dear colleagues, let me briefly summarize of our conferences cluster. Before the conferences started, we have received 615 participation applications. Out of them, the program committee has accepted 480 reports to be presented during the conferences.
So the total number of presentations included in the Program was 480 and were other original contributions during the discussions that added to the success of the sessions. 27 parallel sections were held during three conference days (July 1-3), the first (June 30) and last (July 4) days of the conference were plenary lectures.
The event was attended by over 420 participants (376 registered, about 50 irregular listeners from hosting organizer Saint-Petersburg State University) from 19 countries: Armenia, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Russia, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, UK, Ukraine, USA, Uzbekistan.
The extended abstracts of the participant’s reports comprised three volumes of proceedings with a total 425 papers. And fourth volume of proceedings was composed from 26 selected papers as fully developed contributions.
Unifying four different conferences in one cluster helped, on one hand, to at least partially solve the problem of funding each particular conference. Sadly, the help we have expected from our potential sponsors from Europe, America and Asia did not arrive. As a result, the total budget of the cluster was 4.5 million roubles. 2.5 million of them were provided by St. Petersburg State University, 400 thousand were added by Russian Foundation of Basic Research, another small sum we have received from Almaz Inc. (Saratov, Russia). All the rest of the sum (about 2.5 million) was covered by organizational fees of our participants.
On the other hand, however, unifying the conferences on closely related field of knowledge enabled exchange of ideas and involvement of greater numbers of people in each particular conference – and thus broadening the corresponding scientific communities.
Conference participants were: scientists, researchers, directors and deputy directors of educational institutions, representatives of the teaching staff of higher education institutions; representatives of commercial organizations.
IVESC moves on to Seoul in South-Korea in 2016 (some slides about the IVESC 2016 showed July 4 at closing ceremony), a venue full of cultural attractions and history. Please plan to come. Also, guidelines for referencing and paper submission are published on this site in Proceedings section.
Thank you to everybody who helped make IVESC-ICEE-ICCTPEA-BDO-2014 a successful conference, who expressed an interest and participated in the event!
