We are pleased to announce that the 17th International Summer School on Crystal Growth will be held in Granby, CO USA from July 21-26, 2019 in conjunction with 19th International Conference on Crystal Growth and Epitaxy (in Keystone, CO on July 28-August 2, 2019).


The venue of the school will be the YMCA of the Rockies – Snow Mountain Ranch. The YMCA is ~100 miles from Denver International Airport (2 hour drive) and ~80 miles from Keystone (1.5 hour drive).  The technical program consists of approximately 15 lectures covering theoretical and experimental aspects of the growth and characterization of semiconducting, oxide, metallic, organic and biological crystals.  Lectures are planned by leading researchers in fundamentals of bulk crystal growth and epitaxial processes, solution phase growth, nanocrystallization, and in situ and ex situ characterization.


The format of the school is designed to encourage interaction between lecturers and attendees.  Informal discussions will be facilitated via social events including breakfasts and dinners, poster sessions with extended coffee breaks, a welcome reception and outdoor barbeque.  In addition, the YMCA venue has numerous outdoor activities which will provide additional opportunities for attendees to interact in a scenic outdoor setting.
