The 2021 virtual conference and 2022 physical event will uphold the “SPIRIT OF ECASIA” by bringing together scientists from universities, industry and instrument suppliers, to bridge the gap between fundamental and applied research in surface science and to follow new trends in instrumentation. ECASIA ’21/22 will bring into focus the cutting-edge scientific and technological developments in materials science/engineering, modern electronics and life-science/biotechnology with particular reference to surface and interface analysis.
The Modelling, Simulation And Innovative Characterisation (MOSAIC) group within the Biomaterials Cluster of the Bernal Institute, University of Limerick is organising these events.
Limerick is ideally placed to host ECASIA ‘21/22 due to the presence of the University of Limerick’s Bernal Institute, a centre for excellence in materials and surface characterisation. The area also boasts a large number of high-tech industries involved in advanced manufacturing of pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, biomedical devices, and associated supply chains. Excellent academic educational institutions such as the University of Limerick and Limerick Institute of Technology make it an ideal hub for scientific exchange. The University of Limerick is situated on 130 hectares of beautiful parkland, with the River Shannon as it’s unifying focal point. Located 4 kms outside the Limerick City, the University is renowned for its superb facilities, including Fáilte Ireland-approved on-site accommodation, well equipped lecture theatres, high quality catering, sports facilities including a 50m pool, and attractive riverside walks. Limerick is also the gateway to Ireland’s breath-taking Wild Atlantic Way which offers visitors an opportunity to see the longest defined coastal driving route in the world and local attractions such as museums, cathedrals, castles and much more.
Ireland is renowned for its warm and friendly welcome, and we are looking forward to seeing each and every one of you at ECASIA ’21/22.
CÉAD MÍLE FÁILTE (a hundred thousand welcomes) to ECASIA ’21/22.
