General Information

The GADEST conference series provides an international forum on Gettering and Defect Engineering in Semiconductor Technology for experts in the field of semiconductor technology, semiconductor device physics and defect physics. With a clear focus on applied academic research, a major goal of the GADEST conferences is the exchange of experiences and views with industry, whose participation is strongly encouraged. Since 1985, when the conference series was established by Hans Richter of the Institute for Physics of Semiconductors of the Academy of Science of the former German Democratic Republic, it also aims at bringing together participants from eastern and western countries. The GADEST conferences are organized biennially in a spirit that encourages close interactions and discussions among the participants.
