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 2020 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
  • Tribological coatings, wear and corrosion protection
  • Cold and Thermal spraying (PVD, CVD, ...), thermochemical, Electro- and electroless plating
  • Surface engineering/ coatings in sustainable energy, conversion, optical, electric, photovoltaic and magnetic applications
  • Biointerfaces, Biomedical/ Bioactive surfaces and coatings


In addition to the conference main sessions, the following focused sessions will run in parallel:


  1. Focused session on composite and hybrid coatings,
  2. Focused session on tribological coatings, wear and corrosion protection,
  3. Focused session on Surface nanoengineering, nanocoatings and Ultra-Thin Films,
  4. Focused session on Plasma surface engineering,
