The Brazilian Workshop on Semiconductor Physics is a biennial workshop initiated in 1983 with the goal of gathering the Brazilian semiconductor physics community to a series of lectures on the most important and timely topics in the area.

BWSP is currently the premier national meeting for reporting all aspects of semiconductor physics including electronic, structural, optical, magnetic and transport properties.

The workshop will reflect the state of art in the semiconductor physics and will serve as a forum where scholars, researchers, and specialists can interact to discuss future research directions and technological advancements.

In this edition, the BWSP will be organized by professors from the Institute of Physics of the University of São Paulo (IFUSP).

We will continue to cover a broad range of topics such as low dimensional systems, topological insulators, graphene, two-dimensional systems beyond graphene, wide- and narrow-gap semiconductors,  spin manipulation, organic and biological related semiconductors, among other traditional topics in semiconductor physics. Moreover, we will include tutorials on growth, spin-orbit coupling and two-dimensional materials.

The BWSP-18 will be held from Aug. 14 to 18 / 2017 (save the dates!) at the Maresias Beach Hotel.
