About this Conference

The 6th ULSIC vs. TFT conference continues the tradition of the previous five successful conferences held in Barga, Italy (2007), Xi’An, China (2009), Hong Kong, China (2011), Grenoble, France (2013), and Lake Tahoe, California, USA (2015) in providing a forum to discuss the latest developments in semiconductor technology, ranging from nanoscience to giga scale integration.

This is the only conference bringing together experts from the two most popular semiconductor technologies – ULSICs and TFTs – to discuss ideas and exchange opinions on future challenges cohesively.  Both technologies are based on the same principles and face common challenges in devices, materials, fabrication processes, reliability, and applications.

The goal of this conference is to exchange state-of-the-art information and thoughts among those involved in research and development.  Invited speakers include distinguished researchers, engineers, professors, and national academy members from US, Europe and Asia.  A portion of the oral and poster presentations are reserved for junior researchers.

Conference Venue

The conference will be held at Schloss Hernstein Seminar Hotel. The hotel is situated in the wonderful Triestingtal valley, surrounded by pine forests and a carp lake. Guests can enjoy sauna, steam and fitness rooms, as well as a large indoor swimming pool. There are also several signposted routes for jogging on forest tracks starting at the hotel.

Brochure describing the history of Schloss Hernstein:          Part I                     Part II

Hernstein Castle is situated at the fringe of the Viennese Basin, in the stepped footland of the Styrian and Lower Austrian limestone alps. Its history goes back to medieval times: once the castle safeguarded the street to Berndorf Village and the valley before it. In former times the building comprised a housing unit and a chapel. It would have been very difficult to expand the building; therefore a new castle – the core of today´s castle – was built in the valley at the foot of the mountain where the old castle had been built.

After the Turkish wars this new building was expanded and in the 18th century it got a uniform facade. For a long time the castle was owned by the Habsburgs and was used as domicile by Archduke Leopold Ludwig. The renowned architect Theophil Hansen designed the castle.

Hernstein Castle is one of the largest seminar hotels in Austria and is only available to seminar participants. Therefore it ensures a tranquil atmosphere of learning and working. Hernstein Castle has modern rooms with such amenities as satellite TV, a minibar, work desk, and wireless internet.


If you are driving to the conference, map and directions are provided.  Your browser can translate the page into English.

If you are not renting a car, the easiest way to get to Schloss Hernstein is to take a taxi from the Vienna International Airport (Flughaften Wien). You can also take a RailEurope train from Vienna to Leobersdorf and then a taxi to Hernstein. Be certain to print out the map and directions in case the taxi driver in Vienna is not familiar with the rural area where Schloss Hernstein is location.

General Information about ECI

Engineering Conferences International (ECI) is a global engineering conferences program, originally established in 1962, that provides opportunities for the exploration of problems and issues of concern to engineers and scientists from many disciplines.

The format of the weeklong research conference provides morning and late afternoon or evening sessions in which major presentations are made. Available time is included during the afternoons for ad hoc meetings, informal discussions, and/or recreation. This format is designed to enhance rapport among participants and promote dialogue on the development of the meeting. We believe that the conferences have been instrumental in generating ideas and disseminating information to a greater extent than is possible through more conventional forums.

All participants are expected both to attend the entire conference and to contribute actively to the discussions. The recording of lectures and presentations is forbidden. As ECI conferences take place in an informal atmosphere, casual clothing is the usual attire.
