The International Conference on Metallurgical Coatings and Thin Films or ICMCTF is internationally recognized as a vibrant technical conference that integrates fundamental and applied research focused on thin film deposition, characterization, and advanced surface modification techniques. It is the premier international meeting in this field, bringing together scientists and technologists from both academia and industry, thereby merging up to date research with cutting edge applications.

The conference consistently draws more than 700 attendees each year within 37 oral technical sessions and a well-attended poster session.

ICMCTF 2016 is organized in eight concurrent technical symposia A through H and six special topical symposia, which address experimental, theoretical, and manufacturing issues associated with development of new coating materials and processes, and evolving approaches to scale-up for commercial applications.

In addition to the technical program, the conference features a two-day industry exhibition, which is open to the public, showcasing the latest in equipment, materials and services used for the deposition, monitoring and characterization of coatings and thin films. Short Courses and Focused Topic Sessions (FTS) will be offered throughout the conference week.
