The Cape Peninsula University of Technology, CEFIM, University of Pretoria, and Stellenbosch University are pleased to announce SACSST 2009, to be held at Spier Wine Estate, Stellenbosch, South Africa from
8-9 April 2009. View the First Call for papers here.
The aim of SACSST 2009 is to establish a forum for the exchange of in-depth ideas for South African researchers working in the relatively small fields of semiconductor and superconductor technologies. Participants will be able to get acquainted with the research activities in the field and share technical information and problems with their peers. The conference will serve as a platform for industry, universities (including postgraduate students) and research institutions to report on their research activities.
See "Author Information" for more detail on full paper submission and format. Full length papers must be submitted before or on 2 March 2009.
