about Symposium

The three day “International Symposium on Modeling of Crystal Growth Processes and Devices” is highly beneficial for the researchers who are working in the field of modeling and simulation of various crystal growth processes, semiconductor devices, NLO and Piezoelectric devices. The development of modern devices requires materials with a high degree of crystallographic perfection, low defect density and uniform dopant distribution throughout the crystals. Numerical modeling plays a vital role in developing optimised process conditions for growing high quality crystals nd designing device structures for efficient electronic and optoelectronic devices. The ultimate goal of the symposium is to give a basic understanding for the young researchers to explore the advance developments of modeling on crystal growth processes and devices, to evolve guidelines for their further research. The symposium includes Keynote/ Invited lectures by eminent experts from various foreign and Indian institutions, poster & oral presentations from the researchers.

About the Institutions

SSN Institutions, founded by Dr. Shiv Nadar, Chairman, HCL Technologies, stands out as a premier center of higher learning with a mission of pursuing excellence in education and research. The institutions, with their diverse and dynamic community of students, offer a distinctive combination of some of the finest graduate, undergraduate and research programs. SSN has been recognized for its efforts in excellence in education by the Ministry of Human Resources & Development, GoI under the National Institutional Ranking Framework 2017. It is a source of great pride to all of us that we have been ranked 5th among all private engineering colleges and ranked 27th among all engineering colleges and 80th among all educational institutions in the country. SSN is chosen as one of the 26 nodal centres in India for conducting the Smart India Hackathon 2017, the world’s largest Hackathon. Recently the institution is awarded Grade A+ by NAAC and autonomous status by UGC.

About SSN Research Centre

SSN Research Centre (SSN RC), founded by Dr. Shiv Nadar, Chairman of HCL Corporation, is a not-for-profit entity managed by SSN Institutions. Presently, the focus of research activities is on the development of crystalline and thin film silicon materials and their applications in the fabrication of solar cells, Dye Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSCs), melt and solution crystal growth. Modeling and Simulation activities are seriously taken for the past 10 years in melt crystal growth and DSSC activities. Research activities in photovoltaic devices are being carried out by a team of 8 well qualified and trained scientists. Mc-silicon ingots are successfully grown by Directional Solidification(DS) process with the help of modeling and simulation results using first Indian made DS furnace under ‘Make in India’ initiative. More than 30 students are pursuing Ph.D. Efforts are being made to strengthen research on quantum dot and Pervoskite based solar cells and Hetero-junction with Intrinsic Thin film solar cells.


The best poster presentation awards will be given separately to Process Modeling as well as Devices Modeling. No award for oral presentation.


Separate accommodation for gents and ladies will be provided on payment basis at institute hostel based on request.
