The Organizational Committee invites you to participate in "ISVTE-4", "ISTFE-12", "ISPM-7" symposia, which will be held on April 23-27, 2001, in Kharkiv.

Manner of participation:

  • with a presentation of a report;
  • listener, without a presentation of a report.

The whole program is subdivided into plenary sessions, sectional sessions and poster sessions.

General Information

Conferences and symposia on various application aspects of vacuum technologies and equipment in different branches of science and industry are being regularly held in Kharkiv for more than twenty years. Their most significant feature lies in creating conditions for contacts between science and industry workers for the purpose of quickest introduction of the latest results of researchers and engineering developments into industry.

Kharkiv, being the former capital of Ukraine, is the second largest city, following Kiev. It is a large industrial, scientific and cultural center of the country. There is an international airport connected with numerous cities of Europe and America.

The National Science Center “Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Technology” (NSC KIPT) is the oldest scientific center in Ukraine. In 1998 it celebrated its seventieth anniversary. World known scientists and specialists used to work here, and many talented scientists keep working now.

So, it was considered expedient to hold here in 2000 the 12th International Symposium “Thin Films in Electronics” in parallel with a satellite 4th International Symposium “Vacuum technologies and Equipment”, , and also the 7th International Symposium Pure metals.

The Proceedings of all symposia, will be published by the beginning of symposia and all the participants will receive a bound copy of the Proceedings.Official languages: Ukrainian, Russian, and English.

Instructions for Submission of Reports

Reports must include experimental or theoretical results or review information never published before.
Reports with original information must not exceed five typewritten pages, review reports – ten pages, including abstract, tables and figures.

Report Layout

Manuscripts should be presented in two copies, arranged in accordance with the example attached . They must be prepared for direct reproduction. The second copy must have signatures of all the authors.

The manuscript, including tables and figures, has to be supplied with a 1.44 MB diskette containing the report file edited in Microsoft Word
Instead of the diskette, the report file may be sent by e-mail, this being more preferable.

In case of presenting the report in Ukrainian or Russian, the title, the names of the authors, the name and the address of the organization, and the abstract as well must be translated into English and inserted at the end of the report.

Figures and photos must be scanned with a sufficiently high resolution and be inserted into the text. Avoid using wide colour (gray-shade) gamma so that the volume of figures should be below several hundred kilobytes.

Use the built-in formula editor for composing equations and formulas. Using character graphics for preparing tables is not allowed.

The reports that do not meet the requirements mentioned above will be rejected.

The materials sent out will not be returned.

Submission of papers

The papers submitted to the Organizational Committee of the symposia should include the following :

  • the report with the main reporter indicated, and arranged in accordance with the example given;
  • information on authors: (full name, date of birth, name of organization (firm), position, degree and academic rank; home and office addresses with ZIP code, phone, fax, e-mail);
