The papers collected in these Proceedings were presented at the Symposium on Growth, Characterisation and Applications of Bulk II–VIs held at the Congress Center of Strasbourg on June 16-18 1998 in the framework of the E-MRS Spring Meeting dedicated to Advanced Materials.

More than 80 scientists from 14 countries attended this two and a half day symposium which discussed problems dealing with the growth, characterisation and applications of bulk II–VI materials, mainly of the two key semiconductors CdTe and ZnSe.

The symposium was divided into several sessions covering the following topics: growth of CdTe, growth of other wide-gap compounds, narrow-gap compounds, doping, defects and diffusion, nuclear detection and solar cells/photorefractivity. It consisted of a series of invited lectures (8), shorter oral communications (25) and a poster session (33).
