The International Conference on Metallurgical Coatings and Thin Films (ICMCTF) is recognized as the premier international conference on thin-film deposition, characterization, and advanced surface engineering. It provides a forum and networking venue for scientists, engineers, and technologists from academia, government laboratories, and industry all over the world to present their findings, exchange ideas, share insights, make new friends, and renew old acquaintances. The Conference typically draws more than 700 attendees, covering 40 oral technical sessions and a well-attended Thursday evening poster session.
ICMCTF 2017 will have eight technical symposia A through H and three topical symposia, addressing experimental, theoretical, and manufacturing issues associated with the development of new coating materials and processes, novel methods of analysis and characterization, and approaches to scale-up for commercial applications.
In addition to the technical program, the Conference features a two-day industrial exhibition, Tuesday and Wednesday, April 25 and 26, showcasing the latest in equipment, materials and services used for the deposition, monitoring, and characterization of coatings and thin films. The Exhibition is open to the public.
An educational program of Short Courses and Focused Topic Sessions (FTS) will be offered throughout the week.
