Hybrid Conference Information

In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, ISAF 2022 has officially moved to a hybrid conference format. We encourage in-person attendance of the conference but we are also excited to accommodate virtual participation for both authors and attendees who cannot travel to Tours, France.

The ISAF 2022 Virtual Conference Platform will allow virtual attendees to join live-streamed events, engage with exhibitors, present technical papers and participate in live Q&A’s, and access pre-recorded material at your convenience. All in-person attendees will also have access to the Virtual Conference Platform. We encourage you to register for the “in-person” registration and in the event you are unable to travel at the last minute due to existing or new travel restrictions, you will be refunded the difference between the in-person and virtual conference. Please contact the ISAF 2022 Conference Manager Brianna Orr at [email protected] to explain your situation.

NOTICE: The ISAF consent form has been updated to the form linked here. This will be required in order to participate in the hybrid conference.

Welcome to the 2022 ISAF-PFM-ECAPD Joint Conference. The conference will be held in Tours, France from June 27-July 1, 2022.

This international conference aims to bring together leaders from academia, national laboratories  and industrial research and development sectors. The conference will cover the most recent  advancements in the science and technology of ferroelectrics, electroceramics, thin films, dielectric materials and their applications.
