Our Speakers

ICANS30 will feature distinguished plenary speakers at the forefront of their field and representing the three parallel Symposia. Each session within the Symposia will accommodate a mixture of invited and contributed talks. Together with the poster sessions, these engaging talks will stimulate discussion and provide networking opportunities making ICANS30 a platform for promoting collaboration among researchers, professionals, and students.

Mott Lecture

The Mott Lecture is a traditional plenary speech at the ICANS, in the honor of Sir Nevill Mott, winner of the Nobel Physics prize in 1977. Sir Nevil Mott was one of the pioneers of the ICANS.

Plenary

Plenary speakers are esteemed researchers sharing groundbreaking discoveries and advancements in amorphous and nanocrystalline semiconductors, offering comprehensive knowledge and fostering discussions.
