OVERVIEW

The International Conference on Metallurgical Coatings and Thin Films (ICMCTF)

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. Attendees from all over the world come 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. This year, there are several special interest lectures being featured throughout the conference week.

ICMCTF 2018 will have eight technical symposia A through H and four 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 24 and 25, 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.

Each year, the R.F. Bunshah Award Laureate and three outstanding Graduate Student Award winners are celebrated during a special convocation late Wednesday afternoon, April 25, followed by a festive poolside buffet reception in the evening.

The Town and Country Resort Hotel and Convention Center, located in sunny San Diego of Southern California, will be the official conference venue, providing a relaxed atmosphere for discussion and networking among attendees.

"We are pleased to invite you to participate in ICMCTF 2018. We very much look forward to seeing you there."
