Workshop: ALDfor2D
Date: October 31
Location: Eindhoven, NL



The aim of this one-day workshop is to give an overview of current topics in the field of atomic layer deposition (ALD) for the synthesis and integration of 2D Materials such as graphene and the transition metal dichalchalcogenides for nanodevice applications. The workshop is geared towards both scientists who work in the field as well as newcomers and technologists who want to get an overview of the field.

Participation is free but registration is mandatory. To register, use this form.

Invited speakers

Poster Session

Participants are invited to submit an abstract (200 words max.) for the poster session which will be held during the lunch break.

Context of the event

The workshop is organized in the context of the COST action "HERALD" (MP1402).


The workshop is sponsored by

Travel & Accommodation

Travel Support

Deadline for travel support applications: October 21.

Participants from countries participating in HERALD (see here) can apply for travel support. The funding available for travel support will be granted to several participants selected on basis of travel distance and overlap between the topic of the workshop and their work. Participants who wish to be considered for the travel support need to send in a letter of motivation explaining why they want to participate (maximum length 1/2 A4 page) and an overview of the expected costs to Please mention travel support in the subject of the email.


Participants should arrange their own Accommodation; recommendations can be found here.

Internet access

Wi-Fi will be available at the venue and can be activated on site.


By train: When you have reached Eindhoven Central Station, you should take the exit to the bus station on the north side. Turn right as you leave the building and take the footpath between the office buildings until you reach the traffic lights. Cross over at the traffic lights, follow the footpath through the campus. After you cross the river Dommel, the Zwarte Doos is on your right hand side.

By car: From all the motorways to and around Eindhoven (A2, A50, A58, A67 and A270), first follow the signs for ‘Centrum’ and then for ‘Universiteit’. You can park your car on the campus where car parking is indicated. It is possible to park the car at TU/e campus. The maximum parking fee for a day is 7.50 euro for the first 2 days. Please note that after 48 hours, the parking fee increases to 16 euro per day plus an additional fee of 16 euro.

By plane: It is possible to fly directly to Eindhoven Airport (EIN) from many European cities. From Eindhoven Airport, direct bus services 400 and 401 operate to Eindhoven Central Station (journey time about 20 minutes). You will need to buy your ticket from the machine before boarding the bus (approx. €3.50 for a single journey). If you can’t fly directly to Eindhoven Airport, you can fly to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS). From there you can reach Eindhoven Central Station by train in about an hour and a half.
