Thanks to the 140 participants present in Marseille for this 16th edition of the European Vacuum Conference.

Congratulations to the winners of the SFV Michel Cantarel student grant and the Elsevier Student Awards 

EVC-16, 16th European Vacuum Conference will be held from 22 to 26 November 2021 in Marseille, France

EVC is an international conference held every 3 years in Europe (every 2 years before 2018) which aims at gathering researchers from University, Industry and Technical Centers to present and discuss the current state of progress in the field of vacuum sciences and technologies.

As decided by the International Organizing Committee, the 16th European Conference on EVC-16 Vacuum was scheduled in Marseille, France from May 31 to June 4, 2021. Unfortunately, the complex health situation continues to impact our professional life and complicates the planning of the international trips in summer 2021. At the same time, we considered it more appropriate that this international conference be organized in person and not in an online version. Therefore, we have decided to move the conference to the following new dates November 22 to 26, 2021.

EVC is organized by the French Vacuum Society (SFV) and Aix Marseille University (AMU), with the endorsement of ITER, located nearby Marseille.

This five-day event will bring together leading experts in Vacuum Sciences and Technologies (chemistry, physics, mechanics, biology, interface durability...) and other professionals for exchanges through lectures and posters.

The IUVSTA-Elsevier Awards are designed to give partial financial support to four postgraduate research students within seven years of obtaining their first degree at the start of the congress to help them to attend EVC-16 conference at which they are presenting a paper.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Marseille for EVC-16 at 2021. Please save the date!
