The workshop “Floating Zone Technique” was initiated by ScIDre, holding place at the IFW Dresden 2009 for the first time. This workshop aims to connect researchers in the field of crystal growth who use the floating zone technique and to offer a platform for discussing ongoing activities, current research results and engineering developments. Since than, with a period of approx. three years two more workshops took place — 2015 at the IFW Dresden and 2019 at Oxford University. Each time the partner institute hosted the workshop and mainly provided to the organization. The program consists mostly of invited talks, but any suitable scientific contribution is welcome. The 4th workshop will take place presumably in 2022. More information will be soon available here.
