Submission of Late News Contribution is now closed.

Dear SiC enthusiast,

The abstract submission procedure for the 20th International Conference on Silicon Carbide and Related Materials (ICSCRM 2023) is open!

ICSCRM is an annual scientific event that discusses recent advances in the field of Silicon Carbide (SiC) and related materials for electronic devices and applications. It will be proudly hosted by University of Naples Federico II and held at the Congress Center of the Hilton Sorrento Palace in Sorrento (Italy)

The conference also serves as an international forum for the exchange of ideas on recent scientific and technical issues among researchers and engineers in the industrial, academic and public sectors.

One page abstracts (up to two pages of additional material) are invited, but not limited, to cover the following focus topics:

  • Material and Growth
    • Fundamentals (theoretical and experimental)
    • Bulk and epitaxial growth
    • New materials grown on SiC (graphene, III-N compounds and diamond, …)


  • Defects and Characterization
    • Material characterization
    • Surfaces and interfaces
    • Extended defects
    • Defect engineering
    • Characterization techniques


  • Device Process and Characterization
    • Ohmic and Schottky contacts
    • Ion implantation doping
    • SiO2/SiC gate processing
    • Thermal and laser annealing 
    • Novel high-k dielectrics 
    • Polishing, grinding and wafer splitting


  • Device Design and Characterization
    • Device design and testing
    • Novel device concepts and characterization
    • Modelling and simulation
    • Novel Measurements and characterization techniques


  • Packaging and Reliability and Applications
    • Applications in Renewable Energy & Energy Storage, Transportation, Grid Power Systems
    • High temperature and radiation
    • Ruggedness, reliability and qualification


  • Quantum and Sensors Applications
    • spin defects
    • temperature stable defects
    • optical and electrical quantum techniques
    • magnetic and electric field sensors. Temperature sensors
    • single-photon sources and detectors


There will also be a special separated section for the submissions from industries who are willing to present their latest activities to the audience.

Abstract can be submitted through the EasyChair platform, which is available at:

Deadline for abstract submission: 1st of May 2023

Notification of acceptance: 20th of June 2023
