The organizers cordially invite you to the largest vacuum-related meeting in Europe in 2012 – a quadruple JVC-14 / EVC-12 / AMDVG-11 / CroSloVM-19 meeting. The four events are merged together into a single conference, with a unified program and lectures, and one registration for them all. Dubrovnik, a traditional meeting place for the international cooperation offers an excellent and stimulating environment for the conference of high scientific merit which will attract participants from all over Europe. The venue of the conference, a 5 stars hotel Rixos Libertas, provides excellent facilities for the smooth presentation of the conference’s scientific content, as well as for the accompanying exhibition of vacuum equipment and pertinent publications. A world-renowned scientists will present plenary lectures, a number of internationally acknowledged researchers will be invited speakers, and much more oral and poster contributions will provide insight into the state-of-the-art of science and technology in the fields powerfully affecting the way how we live and produce. For the scientists, researchers, engineers, teachers and students interested or active in any of the vacuum-related topics, the JVC-14 / EVC-12 / AMDVG-11 / CroSloVM-19 meeting at Dubrovnik is place to be in early June 2012.
JVC-14 (14th Joint Vacuum Conference) is the 14th conference successively organized by the Vacuum Societies of Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia. This conference series begun as the Hungarian-Austrian Vacuum Conference held in Győr, Hungary in 1979. Now it is organized biennially in one of the member countries. The JVCs traditionally not only offer a good opportunity to young researchers to increase their international visibility, but provides an environment for all interested scientists to establish collaborations and form a close-knit community in a friendly atmosphere, as well.
EVC-12 (12th European Vacuum Conference) is the 12th of this conference series set up by Prof. J. Colligon with the first one at Salford in 1988. It is organized biennially by one of the European Vacuum Societies on behalf of the IUVSTA (International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique and Applications), and attracts ever more participants from all over Europe.
AMDVG-11 (11th Annual Meeting of the German Vacuum Society/Deutsche Vakuum Gesellschaft) is the 11th national event. The aim of the DVG to foster the cooperation between Vacuum Societies in Europe lead to a number of DVG annual meetings organized jointly with other societies. A former joint JVC-12 / EVC-10 / AMDVG-7 meeting proved to be a very successful precedent for broadening of such cooperation.
CroSloVM-19 (19th Croatian-Slovenian Vacuum Meeting) is annual meeting of the Slovenian Vacuum Society and the Croatian Vacuum Society. It is organized each year in other country and brings together the researchers, engineers and students of neighbouring societies for the exchange of the ideas, discussion of the results and initiation of new cooperations.
