Symposium: Surface Engineering - functional coatings and modified surfaces

Scope of the Symposium:
The aim of this symposium is to offer an overview on the frontiers of research, technology and applications of functional coatings and surface modifications by plasma, electron, ion or laser beams. Physicists, chemists, materials scientists, mechanical, material, metallurgical and mining engineers working in the field are the target audience. Areas of particular interest will include, but will not be limited to:

Abstracts will be solicited in (but not limited to) the following areas:

Tentative list of invited speakers:

  1. Amilton Sinatora - Escola Politécnica da Universidade de São Paulo - Brazil
  2. Christoph Genzel - Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie - Germany
  3. Tiberiu Minea - Université Paris-Sud - France
  4. Christopher Muratore - University of Dayton - USA

Manuscript submission:
Authors are encouraged to prepare manuscripts intended for publication in the international scientific journal "Surface and Coatings Technology" by Elsevier.
Requirements for consideration for publication include both satisfactory English usage and novelty of experimental results that are clearly justified or demonstrated by appropriate arguments. Papers not meeting these criteria will be rejected for publication in the Proceedings volume. The same stringent peer-review evaluation process on the basis of the one adopted for regular papers, will be applied.
