The 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. ICMCTF is the premier international meeting in the field promoting global exchange of information among scientists, technologists, and manufacturers.
The conference draws more than 800 attendees each year with multiple oral technical sessions and a well attended poster session which is a major component of the technical program.
The conference is organized in different technical symposia to address experimental, theoretical, and manufacturing issues associated with development of new coating materials and processes, dynamics of film growth, development of functional coatings, and evolving approaches to scale-up for commercial applications.
The eight concurrent symposia on vacuum processing techniques address the topics described by the symposium titles. There will be special topical symposia (TS1-TS4) on Experimental and Computational Studies of Molecular Materials and Thin Films, Coatings for Fuel Cells and Batteries, Bioactive Coatings and Surface Biofunctionalization and Surface Engineering for Thermal Transport, Storage, and Harvesting.
Additional elements of the conference program include a two day exhibition of the latest in equipment, materials and services used for the deposition, monitoring and characterization of coatings and thin films. Short courses and tutorials are offered.
The hotel environs adjacent to the Conference Center provide a relaxed atmosphere that promotes informal discussions and networking among the attendees
The conference opens with a Plenary Lecture by George Pharr, UT Knoxville Tennessee, USA, entitled “From Pop-In to Pillars: The Utility of Nanoindentation in the Study of Small-Scale Deformation”.
