Project Details


Project Summary: This is to request support, in the amount $5,000, to enable students to attend the

62nd International Conference on Electron, Ion and Photon Beam Technology and Nanofabrication

(EIPBN) 2018, to be held at the Wyndham Grand, Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa in San Juan, Puerto Rico,

May 29 to June 1, 2018. The EIPBN Conference is recognized as the foremost international meeting

dedicated to lithographic science and technology and its application to micro and nanofabrication

techniques. The conference brings together engineers and scientists from industries and

universities from all over the world to discuss recent progress and future trends. Among the

emerging technologies that are within the scope of EIPBN is Nanofabrication for Energy Sources

along with nanofabrication for the realization of low power integrated circuits. There will be

three days of technical presentations at this year's conference in San Juan starting with a plenary

session and poster session and followed by 30 sessions (grouped in 10 sets of 3 parallel sessions).

The conference averages over 400 submitted abstracts from more than 20 countries. Papers presented

at the 2018 conference that pass peer review will be published in the Nov./Dec. 2018 issue of the

Journal of Vacuum Science and Technology B.

Every year, EIPBN provides financial support for students to attend the conference. The steering

committee and attendees view students as the lifeblood of the conference, in that they both provide

a fresh and exciting perspective, and also become the scientists attending the conference in the

future on a regular basis. This support provides for their travel to the conference and usually

comes from a mixture of government agencies and private donors. The DOE funds received by the

conference will provide air travel expenses for 12 students. Although student support will be

provided to overseas students as well, DOE funds will only be distributed to students attending

American universities. All students who receive travel aid pr sent papers at the conference assist

in managing the A/V requirements during technical sessions.
