This event will provide a unique worldwide opportunity to professionals in the academic and industrial research communities to share their latest scientific findings and technological developments in the fields of materials, coatings, nanosciences and surfaces. More than 150 invited speakers, including Nobel Prize winners, will present the state-of-the-art in their research fields. About 2,000 presentations will be made in 15 parallel oral sessions and 3 poster sessions. Supporting this will be an exhibition of scientific instruments, which will take place in the poster area next to the lecture halls to encourage networking amongst the delegates, and a program of relevant short courses, delivered by experienced professionals.
