31st ICMBE, August 30 to September 4, 2020

This series of successful conferences began in 1978 in Paris, and in recent years, has taken place in Nara, Japan (2012); Flagstaff, USA (2014); Montpellier, France (2016), and Shanghai, China (2018). The 21st International Conference in Molecular Beam Epitaxy will take place in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

The International Conference on Molecular Beam Epitaxy (ICMBE 2020) provides a prominent international forum for reporting new developments in the areas of fundamental and applied molecular beam epitaxy research, including advances in the technique, synthesis of new materials, discovery of new physical properties, formation of novel heterostructures, and the development of innovative devices.

The conference will take place in one of the great  beach hotels of Puerto Vallarta with the "all inclusive" modality. The hotel will have the capacity to receive all the attendees to the event. We recommend that all participants stay at the selected hotel to take full advantage of scientific and social interaction.
All inclusive hotel
The "all inclusive" modality rates include the use of a large variety of facilities and 24 hours unlimited meals and beverages . Specialty restaurants are also available (reservation required) at no extra costs. Our experience is that all participants can meet in a variety of nice enviroments and enjoy high quality foods, a wide variety of beverages and services without any additional spending, which is very convenient. "All inclusive" rates are very suitable for participants accompanied by their family.
