ICMCTF-International Conference on Metallurgical Coatings and Thin Films

The International Conference on Metallurgical Coatings and Thin Films (ICMCTF)
is internationally recognized as the premier international conference focused on
thin-film deposition, characterization, and advanced surface engineering. It
brings together scientists, engineers, and technologists from academia,
government laboratories, and industry, thereby merging cutting-edge research
with real-world applications. The conference consistently draws more than 700
attendees each year within 32 oral technical sessions and a well-attended poster

ICMCTF 2013, the 40th anniversary of this conference, will be organized in seven
concurrent technical symposia A through G and four topical symposia, addressing
experimental, theoretical, and manufacturing issues associated with the
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
industrial 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.

Each year, the R.F. Bunshah Award Laureate and three outstanding Graduate
Student Award winners are celebrated during a special convocation at the ICMCTF.

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 the attendees.

We are pleased to invite you to participate in ICMCTF 2013 and celebrate its
40th anniversary and very much look forward to seeing you there.
