Dear current VPHA contributors,

For your information: as we anticipated - see VPHA status update 17.1.2019 - the abstract submission deadline for the Baltic ALD conference has been postponed. The new extended deadline is Jan 31, 2019, see https://www.eurocvd-balticald2019.lu/. We are grateful for this extension.

Thank you to the several people who responded within the original DL (20.1.): sent information of new affiliation, proposed new theses to the list, commented that the abstract contents are ok, and confirmed authorship or will to be just acknowledged. Notes of updates to come are show in real time here <link removed>.

With the extended submission deadline, we can agree a new internal deadline related to updating info for the poster abstract. We can agree that author - and thesis! - information that comes in by Jan 25 can be accounted for in the abstract. Information sent in later than that can still be accounted for in the poster itself.


Best regards,
Riikka Puurunen, voluntary VPHA coordinator

Importance: High

Dear current VPHA contributors,

Best wishes for you all for 2019!

In 2018, the prestigious Millennium Technology Prize was awarded for ALD and (some) learnings from VPHA were summarized in an invited conference presentation - slides & proceedings in ECSarXiv.

Year 2019 is planned to be the year when VPHA will be  finalized.

To get active with VPHA again, we are planning abstracts for poster presentation to the two ALD conferences to come (Baltic ALD and the AVS ALD conference), related to the ALD thesis list that we have jointly been collecting. We would have the coauthor list, addresses and contents checked by Jan 20, if possible, see the action items below.

Another planned item is to prepare for to write a brief final review on ALD. This is recognized to be a highly complex, but important task. The framework needs to be agreed upon before we actually (make the decision to) start the work. We will get back to this item later.

This VPHA status update shares - see below - more information on the abstracts. Also, you find below a link to how the Molecular Layering was described in the Millennium Prize nomination letter (ALD History Blog post 31.12.2018), and links to other posts in ALD History Blog published after the previous VPHA status update on 22.7.2018.

We are looking forward to finalizing the VPHA in 2019 in a large international collaboration.

Best regards,
On behalf of the core organizing group,
Riikka Puurunen, voluntary VPHA coordinator

Posters to international ALD conferences in 2019

To get active with VPHA again, we are planning abstracts for poster presentation to the two ALD conferences to come (Baltic ALD and the AVS ALD 2019 conference), related to the ALD thesis list that we have jointly been collecting. Deadlines for abstract submissions are already Jan 21 and Feb 15, respectively. Especially the deadline for the Baltic ALD conference is very close.  

The abstract drafted for the Baltic ALD conference, the first of the two conferences, is attached for your reference.   

The abstract is very concise and to the point, as the contributor list of VPHA is long and the names take most space. You can compare it e.g. to the abstract of the Baltic ALD 2014 conference, here.

Authorship is planned to be as with the VPHA review published in 2017, with all VPHA contributors as authors by default, in alphabetical order.

à Action items, all VPHA coauthors and prospective poster coauthors, please do these latest on Jan 20, if ever possible:
·         If a VPHA contributor wishes to be rather in the Acknowledgements than in the author list of the poster abstract, please let us know you replying to this message (for clarity, cc info at vph-ald.com).
·         Everyone: please check your affiliation. If changes are needed, please let us know by email (reply to this email and for clarity cc info at vph-ald.com). You can also indicate the new address here <link removed> (it is Google Docs with commenting function).
·         As the drafted abstract text is so simple, short and factual, we expect that the content is acceptable by all coauthors. Would you nevertheless have comments related to the contents, please write them directly here <link removed> (it is Google Docs with commenting function). Please write the comment latest on January 20 (preferably earlier) and include your name with the comment.

We know that time is tight, but if possible, we would like to submit an abstract to Baltic ALD already. Often, the conference submission deadlines are postponed at the end - would this happen this time, that would make our work preparing the abstract easier.
