The first call for abstracts for UKS 2020 is expected to go out in January 2020. The exact timeline with submission deadlines will be announced at a later date.
Submissions are welcome on all aspects of semiconductor research. Please email your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org, stating your preferred symposia:
- A – Physics in Semiconductors
- B – Optical Devices
- C – Electronic Devices
- D – Semiconductor Materials and Nanostructures
- E – Mid-IR and THz Devices
- F – Organic, Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Semiconductors and Perovskites
- TMD – 2D materials (in association with TMD-UK)
Abstracts should be a single sheet of A4, sent in PDF or Word document format. Please ensure you include a list of authors, affiliations and a corresponding author email.
For this year only we are not holding a dedicated wide bandgap semiconductors symposium for contributed talks, but abstracts are still welcome covering these materials, including III-N’s, especially for submission to symposia B, C, and D.
If your abstract has been selected for a talk, the standard duration is 15 minutes so you should prepare a talk of around 12 minutes duration with 3 minutes for questions. Your presentation should be in PowerPoint or pdf format and should be uploaded to the lecture theatre computer via USB stick before the start of your talk session. The email confirming selection of your abstract for a talk will also include which day of the conference your talk will be scheduled.
If your abstract has been selected for a poster, posters should be a maximum size of A0 portrait in order to fit on the poster boards. Please print your poster prior to arriving at the conference as we cannot guarantee that local printing services will be able to print it in time. Poster sessions are on the lunchtime of day 1 or day 2, depending on the symposium – the day of your presentation will be included in the email confirming selection of your abstract for a poster. The poster boards will be available from the morning of your poster session; if you have a poster on day 1 please take it down by the end of the day so the boards can be made ready for day 2.
We will send you an email confirming receipt of your abstract as soon as possible once we have received it and allocated it to a symposium – please allow up to 48 hours, especially at busy periods for example near the abstract deadline. Once the abstract deadline has passed the programme committee will put together the programme and we will send out emails confirming selection of your presentation for talks or poster presentations in early May.
Please indicate in your covering email if you have a preferred symposium, but the Programme Co-ordinator will check each abstract anyway and make sure it is submitted to the most relevant symposium and has the best chance to be selected for your preferred presentation type. The symposium to which the abstract has been submitted will be included in the email reply you will receive confirming receipt of your abstract.
