The 19th International Conference on Crystal Growth and Epitaxy (ICCGE-19) took place in Keystone, Colorado, USA from July 28 – August 2, 2019, and provided sessions for presentation and discussion regarding recent research and development activities in all aspects of crystal growth and epitaxy. We participated in this event with great pleasure and success! We are looking forward to the next ICCGE meeting to be held in Italy.
