2nd International Symposium on Transparent Conductive Oxides


22-26 October 2008,

Crete, Greece

Dear Colleagues,

Following the successful outcome of the 1st International Symposium on
Transparent Conductive Oxides (TCO2006) that took place in Crete, Greece in
October 2006 the International Board of directors has decided for the follow-up
to take place again in Crete in October 2008. Thus we hereby proudly announce
that the 2nd TCO (www.tco2008.org ) will be held at

Crete, Greece for the period 22-26 October, 2008.

The Symposium is an opportunity to present and discuss current academic and
industry developments, achievements and trends in the fast growing field of
Transparent Conductive Oxides with particular focus on the following non
exhaustive list of topics:


* Functional/ multi-functional TCOs
* Structure / defects / interfaces
* Mesoporous / Nanoporous materials
* Piezoelectric, magnetic and dielectric TCOs
* Modeling and simulation
* Electrical, mechanical and optical properties


* Physical / Chemical growth techniques
* Electrodes and device fabrication processes
* Direct writing, printing and pattering
* New tools and equipment


* Flexible electronics
* P-type metal oxide materials and devices
* Transparent devices ( TTFTs, OLEDs, AM-OLEDs)
* TCO chemical sensors (environmental / food / medical)
* TCOs in photovoltaic devices
* Smart windows and architectural coatings
* Protective / Photocatalytic and active coatings
* Wavelength-selective devices based on TCOs
* Emerging exciting applications
