The Eighteenth International Conference on High Pressure Semiconductor Physics (HPSP18) is a satellite of the International Conference on the Physics of Semiconductors (ICPS 2018) to be held in Montpellier, France, during the first week of August. The International Workshop on High Pressure Study of Superconductors (WHS2) will merge with HPSP series for the second time in Barcelona, after the success of the first joint meeting in Tokyo in 2016. The aim of HPSP18&WHS2 is to bring together young and experienced researchers from different fields to meet during a single-session conference for the exchange of ideas, dissemination and discussion of their latest results in research areas dealing with the application of high pressure and other forms of stress to study both semiconductors and superconductors.

The HPSP18&WHS2 conference will review the latest advances and developments of both bulk and nanostructured semiconductor and/or superconductor materials and devices using high pressure techniques, including advances in pressure-induced superconductivity, novel materials, design of high pressure apparatus, and other related topics. Finally, by bringing together scientists in semiconductor and superconductor high pressure physics, we expect to create new synergies, strengthening activities in both research areas.

History

HPSP is a biennial meeting with a long-standing tradition. The first two meetings took place in Poland (1985) and Montpellier (1986) as a Polish-French Meeting on High Pressure Applications in Semiconductors. The success of these early conferences made it clear that the topic of high-pressure semiconductor physics attracted a great interest. Consequently, in 1988 the series was convened under its present name, being organized as a satellite of the traditional International Conference on the Physics of Semiconductors (ICPS series). HPSP conferences were held in:
  • HPSP3, Tomazów, Poland (1988)
  • HPSP4, Porto Caras, Greece (1990)
  • HPSP5, Kyoto, Japan (1992)
  • HPSP6, Vancouver, Canada (1994)
  • HPSP7, Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany (1996)
  • HPSP8, Thessaloniki, Greece (1998)
  • HPSP9, Sapporo, Japan (2000)
  • HPSP10, Guildford, UK (2002)
  • HPSP11, Berkeley, USA (2004)
  • HPSP12, Barcelona, Spain (2006)
  • HPSP13, Fortaleza, Brazil (2008)
  • HPSP14, Changchun, China (2010)
  • HPSP15, Montpellier, France (2012)
  • HPSP16, Mexico City, Mexico (2014)
  • HPSP17&WHS, Tokyo, Japan (2016)
  • HPSH18&WHS2, Barcelona, Spain (2018)
