Abstract book: just like last year an abstract book will be composed that everybody can use to exchange information about their use of the various cleanroom equipment. Therefore we request each cleanroom user to submit one-page A4-sized abstract. A template for the abstract has been sent to the cleanroom users. The abstract should focus on your activities in the cleanroom, such as fabrication-aspects, process development, techniques/procedures that you use or have developed to fabricate a specific feature/device/structure, cleanroom equipment/tools you utilize etc. Please do not include too much information that is obtained outside the cleanroom (e.g. on functionality of realized devices, modelling results etc.).

Deadline for abstract-submission is Thursday March 15th. Please send your abstract to The abstract book will be provided to all of you during the cleanroom user meeting, and might be the source for new ideas or cooperation!

Poster: Each research chair & company has to bring one poster (format A1 or A0) to the cleanroom user meeting, of which the contents targets on the following:

  • Fabrication aspects & development of cleanroom processes/techniques/procedures
  • Utilized equipment & critical steps in the processing
  • Realized structures & characteristic feature-size(s)

Please send the title of the poster of your chair/company before April 4th to

Note: if multiple members of a chair/company are active in the cleanroom, they should make a combined poster.

Presentations: similar to the 1st meeting, also this year there will be presentations from research chairs & companies: based on submitted abstracts speakers will be selected by the organizers.

If you have questions about the user day, the abstract or the poster, don’t hesitate to contact us. We are looking forward to this fruitful meeting and hope you will join us!

With kind regards, on behalf of Gerard Roelofs,
