GENERAL INFORMATION


 

ABOUT EURODIM'18

The 2018 Europhysical Conference on Defects in Insulating Materials (EURODIM 2018) will be held at the University of Bydgoszcz, Poland, from 8-13 July 2018. Europhysical conferences (EURODIM) take place every four years and are alternated with International conferences (ICDIM). EURODIM 2018 followed other conferences in the series, held in Kent, UK (2014), Pecs, Hungary (2010), Milan, Italy (2006) and Wroclaw, Poland (2002), as well as the related ICDIM conferences held in Lyon, France (2016), Santa Fe, USA (2012), Aracaju, Brazil (2008), Riga, Latvia (2004) and Johannesburg, South Africa (2000). These series of conferences are broad international forums on the science and technology of defect-related phenomena in crystalline and amorphous wide band-gap materials and bringing together scientists to discuss the chemistry and physics of defects in solids, and their role in determining material properties.

The 13 edition of EURODIM will be hosted by the Institute of Physic Kazimierz Wielki University in Bydgoszcz (UKW). The chairman is prof. dr hab. Yuriy Zorenko and the vice-chairs are prof. dr. hab. Andrzej Suchocki and prof. dr. hab. Kazimierz Fabisiak, all from Institute of Physics UKW.

Applications are now accepted for hosting EURODIM 2022. The applications should be sent by email to prof. dr. hab. Yuriy Zorenko indicating potential chairman and location/institution and containing the information on the conference plans/logistics. The applicant will have to prepare a presentation to report the proposal to the international advisory committee during EURODIM 2018.

Note that after the conference EURODIM 2018, LUMDETR 2018, the 10th conference on Luminescent Detectors and Transformers of Ionizing Radiation will be held in Prague.

EURODIM 2018 SCIENTIFIC TOPICS

The scope of the Conference is the presentation of the latest investigations on point and extended defects in bulk materials, thin films and nano-structures. Technological applications will be presented together with fundamental investigations and theories. The EURODIM 2018 brings together scientists from universities, academic institutions and industry. The meeting aim is a free exchange of new results and ideas for advancing the development of the fields of defect-related phenomena in wide band-gap materials. The main scientific areas EURODIM 2018 include:

  • Fundamental physical phenomena
  • Point and extended defects in wide band-gap systems
  • Defects at surfaces and interfaces
  • Thin films and low-dimensional systems
  • Nanocrystals, colloids and aggregates
  • Defects and material preparation technology
  • Defects modeling and computational methods

INFORMATION ABOUT BYDGOSZCZ



 
Bydgoszcz is the capital city of the kujawsko-pomorskie voivodeship. A city with the population of 358 thousand it has three state universities and sixteen other universities and colleges. It was granted municipal rights by king Casmir the Great in 1346 and has since grown to the rank of a dynamically developing economic centre. The city is home to many international companies that deal with electrotechnical industry, telecommunications and banking, such as Nokia, Tyco Electronics, Atos Origin and JP Morgan Chase. It is also worth knowing that the Old Market Square is crossed by the 18 meridian East. However, the place that actually contains a display of this geographical curiosity is Mill Island. A number of museums, the proximity of the Opera and the numerous festivals and concerts that take place in the amphitheatre make this place the cultural centre of the city.
 
   

Old Town

Bydgoszcz Old Town was marked out in 1346, when the city was founded by King Casimir the Great. Its present-day buildings date back mainly to the 20th century. The oldest church in Bydgoszcz, the Cathedral of Saints Martin and Nicholas, is also located here

   

Bydgoszcz Canal

Bydgoszcz Canal was built in 1773-1774 as a part of the international waterway. It connects the Vistula River and the Odra River. The establishment of Bydgoszcz Canal has contributed to the dynamic development of the city.

   

Bydgoszcz Cathedral

Bydgoszcz Cathedral - was constructed in 1466- 1502. The high altar painting is the most interesting attraction for the faithful and tourists.

   

Granaries on the Brda River

Granaries on the Brda River - are the symbol of the city. They belong to one of the most recognized natural city logos. Once timber-framed landmarks in Poland, nowadays they belong to the Leon Wyczółkowski District Museum.

   

Mill Island

Mill Island - is the notable heart of Bydgoszcz. One of the most enchanting places in Bydgoszcz. Sights: Water, bridges, old mills, red-brick buildings. They all reflect the atmosphere of this Bydgoszcz river island.

   

Museum of Soap and History of Dirt

Museum of Soap and History of Dirt - offers interactive time travel through the history of dirt and soap making, which has ties with Bydgoszcz.

   

Forest Park of Culture and Recreation

Forest Park of Culture and Recreation - Myślęcinek.One of the largest "green" complexes in Poland. It covers an area of nearly 500 ha of forests with hundred year old specimens of trees. Myślęcinek is excellently linked with the centre of Bydgoszcz.

 
PLACES TO SEE


   

Toruń

Toruń is famous for housing of one of the biggest number of Gothic art and architecture in Poland. Toruń was founded in the medieval times. The city is abundant in monuments

   

Tuchola Coniferous Forests

One of the largest forest complexes in Poland. Far away from big city hustle. Here one can go on many kayaking trails on the Brda, Wda and other rivers.

   

Biskupin

Biskupin settlement with amazing wooden structures, dated by prof. Kostrzewski to 700 – 600 BC.

 

Gniew

The construction of the castle in Gniew was started by the Teutonic Knights in 1282 and continued in the XIV century. As the seat of the convent during the Order times, it was the main political centre of the commander.

   

Malbork

Commander of the Teutonic Order Siegfried von Feuchtwangen moved his office to Malbork in 1309. The castle started to be the capital of one of the most powerful states of the Baltic. Malbork was then transformed into a strongly fortified High Castle. It was surrounded by deep moats and several defensive walls. Representative rooms inside: the church of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Ann’s chapel beneath it. The latter became the burial site for the Grand Masters.

   

Gdańsk

Gdańsk is Poland's principal seaport. The city lies on the southern bay of the Baltic Sea and together with two other cities forms a metropolitan area called the Tricity which approaches 1.4 million citizens. Gdańsk has its origins in the 980s when it was erected by Mieszko I of Poland. Prior to the 18th century it was the most rapidly growing city of Poland.
