Review V2023

September 18-21, 2023
International Congress Center Dresden

V2023 – Vacuum & Plasma attracted 460 participants. For the first time in English, the conference as an international event attracted a great deal of attention. A tutorial at SBS Metalltechnik GmbH with a company tour provided information on vacuum system construction. The sessions focussed on coatings for energy technologies, tools and components, optical & biomedical applications and digital data. Here, the speakers presented the latest findings – with a share of 84 %, the focus was on industry contributions.

Keynote speeches, a session on innovations with a supplementary panel discussion and sessions on quantum technology rounded off the programme perfectly.

The EFDS Award was also awarded for the first time at V2023 to Tobias Brögelmann for his intensive activities on behalf of the EFDS. Dr Karl Jousten was honoured as the winner of the Rudolf Jäckel Award.

Special highlights of V2023 were the Industrial Evening, which encouraged intensive networking. The conference dinner was also very popular – it was held outdoors at pleasant temperatures.

The following pictures give a short insight into the very successful conference.
