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.

Publication

Conference participants are kindly invited to submit original manuscripts for publication in a Focus Series on High Pressure Semiconductor and Superconductor Physics in the international journal Papers in Physics (http://www.papersinphysics.org/index.php/papersinphysics/pages/view/highpressuresemisuperconductor). After peer-review, accepted manuscripts will be published open access as regular articles as part of the Focus Series. In Papers in Physics, authors may ask for Open Review, which means that the reviewers are not anonymous and their names will be stated in the published paper. Moreover, if the editors consider the reports valuable for the readers, the publication of Commentaries from the reviewers are encouraged, with due Replies from authors, if necessary.

Reception of submissions for this focus series of Papers in Physics edited by Andrés Cantarero, Alejandro R. Goñi and J. Sebastián Reparaz is open.

If you wish to submit a manuscript for inclusion in this focus series, you can follow the standard process for regular articles (see authors guidelines: http://www.papersinphysics.org/index.php/papersinphysics/about/submissions#authorGuidelines and indicate you would like the paper to be considered for the "Focus series on High Pressure Semiconductor and Superconductor Physics". The articles will be limited in length to a MAXIMUM of 10 printed pages for invited speakers and 5 pages for contributed papers.

Submissions of original work on topics including, but not limited to the following list, are solicited:

  1. Electronic structure
  2. Mechanical properties including vibrational, elastic and piezoelectric properties
  3. Optical properties
  4. Electrical transport phenomena in semiconductors & superconductors
  5. Impurity and defect states
  6. Structural studies including phase transitions
  7. Magnetic diluted semiconductors & spin dependent properties
  8. Thermoelectricity and thermal properties
  9. Carbon-related semiconductors
  10. Low-dimensional, layered & nanostructured materials
  11. Superconducting materials & pressure-induced metallization and superconductivity
  12. Organic & hybrid materials
  13. Strongly correlated electron systems
  14. Novel materials, structures and devices
  15. New experimental or computational techniques

Presentation Formats

Invited talks: 30 min total (25 min talk + 5 min discussion).
Contributed talks: 15 min total (12 min talk + 3 min discussion).

A computer for projection will be available. Authors are required to bring their presentation on either a memory stick or use their own computer.

Posters: Pin-up boards will be provided to accommodate 120 cm x 90 cm (DIN A0) posters.

Venue

The HPSP18&WHS2 conference will be held at the CosmoCaixa Museum, which is the first interactive science museum in Spain. This space would provide a unique and stimulating environment for all conference participants. The Museum is located in the west part of Barcelona and about 15 minutes (highly dependent on traffic) drive from downtown Barcelona, easily accessible by public transportation such as bus and train (FGC).

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)
