FOREWORD Starting in Ajaccio (France) in 1981, sixteen ICMOVPE conferences have offered as many milestones highlighting the progress in the knowledge, the developments and achievements from materials grown by MOVPE. For this 17th edition, we have prepared an especially attractive social program which will provide ample occasions for contacts between scientists and companies active in the field. The events of our social program (included in the registration fees*) are open to your sponsorship in part or in full. Don’t miss this opportunity to confirm the role and enhance the visibility of your company, as your support will be clearly highlighted in the Conference web site, the program booklet (in printed and digital format) and in other ways that we may find appropriate and cost-effective.

THE WELCOME RECEPTION ON SUNDAY Already on Sunday afternoon, July 13th 2014, the Conference Venue is ours to meet our colleagues from around the world. At 4pm, the registration desk opens, booths are built up in the technical exhibit area and posters are hung-up on their displays. At 7pm, our first get-together starts on or near the Esplanade, a broad open-air platform at the heart of the campus, right next to the Conference venue. Facing the lake and mountains, this is the setting that we have chosen for our Welcome Reception: a cocktail dinner served with musical entertainment, which can be sponsored separately.

* Accompanying persons can buy a guest registration package which covers access to the Welcome Reception, to the Conference Banquet and to one of the Excursions.

THE EXCURSIONS ON TUESDAY On Tuesday July 15th 2014, the Conference attendees are offered the choice of two sightseeing excursions both accessible within an hour’s bus drive, and coached with local guides. Participants are given a picnic bag in or near the main meeting hall, then board the buses, which leave at 1:15pm. Return to downtown Lausanne is expected between 6:30 and 7pm, depending on the road traffic.


GRUYERES - the village, the cheese, the tradition.

In this excursion at the foot of the Pre-Alps, we enter the land where one of the most famous Swiss cheeses - the “Gruyère” - is prepared. Gruyères is actually the name of a picturesque village sitting on top of a hill overlooking the cow meadows, whose architecture has been preserved through the years. The trip starts with a visit to a demonstration cheese dairy where the art of cheese making is illustrated. A moderate uphill walk takes us then through the medieval village of Gruyères up to its 13th century castle, one time a fortress of the Counts of Savoy. Time has past, but tradition survives.

The castle and village of Gruyères If weather allows, we offer to guide those who whish on a 2 hours walk through the meadows of the Gruyères country up to a mountain cheese dairy set in a 17th century chalet. Further information can be found at:

VALLORBE - the caves and the mountains of Jura

If you think of Swiss wilderness as dramatic icy summits, cliffs and glaciers, this excursion is up to change your vision, as it exposes the soft landscapes of Jura and one of its geological wonders: the caves of Vallorbe. For millions of years, the limestone layers within the mountains were eroded by the Orbe, an underground river which day by day carves its way before bursting from the rocks seemingly as a natural spring. The Vallorbe caves offer a spectacular display of the beauty of natural rock, enhanced entirely by natural illumination. Further information can be found at: The excursion includes the guided visit of the caves, followed by an easy (15mn) walk up to the Dent de Vaulion (at 1483m elevation) overlooking the beautiful Lake of Joux. Refreshments are offered during the excursions and can be sponsored separately.
