Welcome

 

The International conference on Surfaces, Coatings and Interfaces 2017
 

SurfCoat Korea 2017

 

Introduction

 

The International Conference on Surfaces, coatings and interfaces - SurfCoat Korea 2017 is a 3-days event to be held in parallel to Surtech Korea 2017 and Coatings Korea 2017 Expo from 29th to 31st March 2017 in the Songdo Convensia, Incheon, Korea.

 

The conference provides a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art in the fields of surfaces, coatings and interfaces engineering, discusses recent advances and current problems, and points out the prospective development of the field.  Contributions are expected to be in line with the surface treatments and coatings processes, and their properties/performance. The conference targets scientists, engineers, managers, innovators, and entrepreneurs. It will provide opportunities for the delegates to exchange face-to-face their novel ideas and experiences with the international experts during plenary & invited talks, oral presentations and posters sessions.
