From 23 to 26 September 2018 VCCN, the Dutch contamination control society, hosts the International Symposium on Contamination Control and Cleanroom Technology in the Hague. ISCC’18 is pleased to announce the final symposium programme, including our keynote speakers.

Contamination control is essential to all high-tech industries and research facilities where ‘clean­liness’ is a precondition for the quality of the product and for the safety and health of the users or employees. Contamination control enables new technology. New research results and innovative technological applications make it possible to keep improving our control over air purity. Sharing this knowledge worldwide significantly accelerates the developments in this field. The ISCC plays a prominent role in doing so.

The Symposium
The symposium starts with a social programme, followed by a two day conference programme, including tutorials and workshops. The symposium closes with technical visits to companies as Philips, ASML and ESA/ESTEC/Space-Expo. The total conference programme consists of 4 keynote speakers and 27 speaker sessions with 72 speakers. The keynote speakers are:
Opening keynote speaker Prof. Dr. Ing. Dave Blank – ­
on Monday 24 September from 9.15 h – 10.00 h
Health Care keynote speaker Dr. Bas Zaat – on Monday 24 September from 17.00 h  – 17.45 h
Micro Nano Technology keynote speaker Prof. Dr. Vadim Banine – on Tuesday 25 September from 08.30 h – 9.15 h
Closing keynote speaker Peter Ross – on Tuesday
25 September from 15.00 h – 15.45 h

The theme of the symposium will be “The world behind Contamination Control” and includes the following areas:

  • Health Care
  • Life Sciences
  • Micro-Nano Electronics
  • Photonics
  • Micro Assembly
  • Food
  • Space

The symposium is intended for people that are new in the field of contamination control and for people that are experienced. ISCC’18 welcomes all con­tamination control professionals to exchange knowledge while meeting old and new friends. With more than 500 participants from all over the world, ISCC 2018 offers an excellent opportunity to learn all about new applications and inventions concerning the improvement of quality in cleanrooms.
