Materials, Interfaces, Processes in Industrial and Basic Research Applications

The AIV XXV Conference approaches the issues associated with materials and processing, in the research and manufacturing communities. The three-day Conference promotes a multidisciplinary environment to encourage a cross fertilization between attendees on emerging technologies. We cordially invite you to participate to the 25th edition of AIV Conference that will offer the opportunity to present and discuss your recent advances in vacuum science and technology and related fields.

AIV XXV Conference will be held in presence. In case of extraordinary circumstances (lockdown due to COVID-19) the conference will be postponed.
