The 5th DSA Symposium will be held in Milan, Italy, October 16-18, 2019.



Directed Self-Assembly (DSA) is rapidly advancing as a potential patterning solution for Advanced Lithography. Nevertheless, several outstanding issues need to be resolved before the technique can find its way into mainstream application. In an effort to identify and help resolve these remaining issues, a 5th International Symposium on DSA will be organized as a collaborative effort between CNR, imec, CEA-Leti,  and NIST, as a follow-up to the 4th edition hosted in Sapporo in 2018. DSA2019 will be held in Milan, Italy on Oct. 16-18, 2019. The conference venue will be the CNR conference center in Milan.  The format will be similar to previous editions with an opening reception on October 16, and 2 full days of talks and a poster session on October 17-18


Deadline for abstract submission has been extended to June 30. If you want to submit your abstract please follow the instrctions available at the following link: call for paper






Satellite event:

The DSA symposium will be anticipated by the 1st  Workshop on Sequential infiltration synthesis - SIS 2019. The workshop will be held in Milan on October 16. The workshop venue will be the CNR conference center in Milan. The aim of this one-day workshop is to gather leading scientists and engineers from both academia and industry working on or interested in SIS to give an overview of current topics in the field. SIS 2019 will focus on the challenges related to potential applications of SIS as well as on the fundamental mechanisms. It will offer an event dedicated to present, discuss, exchange knowledge, and getting informed about the most recent developments, providing an opportunity for meeting, exchanging ideas, and designing new paths for collaborative research.
