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.


The SurfCoat Korea 2019 conference topics include:


  • Surface treatments and coatings deposition, functionalization, modelling and characterization
  • Interface and interaction science, adhesion and Adhesives
  • Multi-functional, composite/ hybrid, graded and multilayers coatings
  • Smart surfaces and coatings, Self-healing surfaces
  • Surface nanoengineering, nanocoatings and Ultra-Thin Films
  • Graphene coatings/films
  • Hydro-, ice- and oleophobic/philic surfaces
