vascaa-9 conference

This biennial conference aims to bring together industry, education, development and research in vacuum science and technology within the Asian, Pacific and Indian Ocean regions. It is a conference of the vacuum societies of Australia, China, India, Iran, Japan, Korea, Pakistan, Philippines, and Taiwan. VASSCAA-9 is one of the main conferences supported by the International Union of Vacuum Science, Techniques and Application (IUVSTA).

The conference, which will run through National Science Week and the Sydney Science Festival, will introduce to the general public this enabling technology through a series of high-profile public events highlighting its importance to everyday life and future technologies and to the exciting science that drives its development.

Topics covered by VASSCAA-9 are:

  • Accelerator and Radiation Sciences and Technology
  • Applied Surface Science
  • Biosurfaces, interfaces, nanostructures
  • Electronic Materials/Processing
  • Magnetic surfaces, interfaces and nanostructures
  • Nanometer¬ Scale Science & Technology
  • Catalytic materials and processes
  • Plasma Science & Techniques
  • Surface Engineering
  • Surface Science
  • Thin Film
  • Vacuum Science and Technology
  • Renewable Energy Technologies

Focus will be given and highlighted in those areas that overlap with the strategic research priorities set by the Australian Government.
