About the Symposium

The ISCST Symposium provides a forum for scientists, engineers and researchers to discuss the latest developments in the application and solidification of thin liquid films. The Symposium features contributions from experts in both academia and industry on topics ranging from fundamental processing science to more applied research and development. The Symposium includes a broad range of coating process science and technology, and impacts many industries. The format is designed to provide mechanisms for the exchange of information and networking across industrial sectors and between academia and industry.

The 2014 Symposium will be held in San Diego and will feature a Plenary Session on Coatings for Energy Applications.  The technical sessions will cover a wide range of areas, including Coating Process Fundamentals, Solidification and Microstructure Development, Printing and Discrete Coating, Wetting, Flow and Solidification of Particulate Coatings and Coating Applications

Symposium Highlights

  • Technical Sessions and Poster Presentations - Original research and advancements in coating from leading university and industry scientists.
  • Receptions - Three networking receptions to exchange knowledge and meet with your industry peers.
  • Awards Luncheon - Acknowledgments of exceptional contribution to the advancement of coating technology.
  • Tabletops - Leading suppliers demonstrating new technology and products in an informal atmosphere.

Who Should Attend

This Symposium is designed for engineers and scientists who are interested in the fundamental understanding of all aspects of the coating process from liquid application through solidification and final coating microstructure and property development. The Symposium format includes oral and poster presentations as well as networking opportunities. The symposium is well suited to both academic and industrial participants. In past symposia, many different industries, including imaging, electronics, energy, medical/life sciences, metal coil coating, paper, printing, information storage, automobile, textile and chemical, have been represented.
