History of the Coating Science and
Technology Symposium and Past Events

The International Coating Science and Technology Symposium has emerged as the premier symposium in the area of liquid film coating and related process fundamentals and applications. The symposium provides a forum for discussion of recent advances in understanding the deposition, solidification, and performance of liquid films. It is the intent of this symposium to encourage contributions that report both fundamental and applied research, as well as provide a forum for information exchange between academic and industrial groups.
