About the Symposium

The ISCST Symposium provides a forum for scientists and engineers from around the world to present and discuss the latest developments and discoveries 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 of the symposium is designed to facilitate learning, exchange of information and networking across industrial sectors and between academia and industry.

The 2018 Symposium will be held in Long Beach from September 16th to the 18th and will feature a plenary session on Micro-/Nano-Replication technology for the creation of patterned surfaces for printed electronics, information storage, light management films and more. The technical sessions will include coating and drying/curing fundamentals, microstructure development, coating applications, wetting and more.

The Symposium also features tabletop exhibits from vendors offering products or services of interest for the coating industry, including equipment suppliers, coating services, coating and drying modeling software and instrumentation.
