Conference  /  September 17, 2023  -  September 22, 2023

The International Conference on Silicon Carbide and Related Materials (ICSCRM) is the most important technical conference series on silicon carbide (SiC) and related materials. Since the first meeting held in Washington DC in 1987, the ICSCRM has become the premiere international forum in this field with an annual attendance of about 800 physicists, engineers, scientists, and students. The conference serves as a platform for the exchange of ideas on the latest scientific and technical issues among researchers and engineers in industrial, academic, and public sectors. Besides the scientific sessions, the ICSCRM also comprises an exhibition which is open for the entire duration of the conference.
