As a joint conference, IFCS-ISAF2020 highlights and celebrates the shared interests and expertise of the Frequency Control and Ferroelectrics communities. In this spirit, the organizers aim to balance the strengths of the traditional symposium groups with the opportunities for mutually-beneficial joint programming. As such, the Technical Program Committees will do their best to assemble cohesive sessions. When submitting your abstract, please help this process by selecting the topical area that best matches your work.



100th Anniversary of the Discovery of Ferroelectricity.

In 1920, Joseph Valasek presented the first report of ferroelectric behavior in Rochelle Salt. In the ensuing century, this phenomenon has enabled countless materials and device advances. Join us throughout the meeting for topical celebrations of the impact of ferroelectrics on society, predictions of the next century of ferroelectricity, and a birthday celebration for this scientific milestone. Don't miss the capstone celebration on Thursday evening, pub-trivia style!




The Keystone area is home to spectacular mountain views, hiking, breweries, and more. The organizers are setting up several group activities for Thursday afternoon to highlight the local attractions and extend the opportunity to network with colleagues outside the meeting rooms. More details will be available in the coming weeks. Please plan to enjoy your time in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, and feel free to contact the Social Chair with any questions.



IFCS-ISAF 2020 Optional Tours 

Tours of NIST / JILA and NREL will be organized for conference participants on Fri, July 24. Space is limited, so be sure to reserve a spot when you register for the meeting!
