The first edition of MIATEC open to all European countries was held in 2010 under the organization of the French Vacuum Society (SFV). From then on it has been an annual event jointly held with other conferences in the field of thin film processing.
RSD was established in Ghent in the early 2000. Over the years the RSD symposium has been organized by the Belgian, Dutch and Austrian Vacuum Societies, as well as by Manchester Metropolitan University and Linköping University.
In 2013 MIATEC and RSD were both part of the 19th International Vacuum Congress (IVC-19) in Paris, organized by IUVSTA (International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique and Applications) and staged by SFV (Société Française du Vide).
The 2015 joint MIATEC and RSD Conference aims to highlight the advances in fundamental research and understanding of all types of PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) processes including thin film deposition and surface treatment based on techniques, such as sputtering and cathodic arc evaporation in noble and reactive gases, as well as ion beam methods.
Dedicated sessions of new designs and achievements in the fields of plasma diagnostics, modeling, reactive PVD, thin film deposition, characterization and applications will provide an opportunity to meet fellow experts and get together with leading international scientists, engineers and students in an relaxed atmosphere. A special focus on industrial R&D achievements is planned during the "Hot Topics" session.
