In the last decade tremendous progress has been made in the field of coating and thin film deposition. Enormous number of modified or new techniques has been developed and applied to production of advanced materials and details. Tendency of the quality escalation of details call for adequate increase not only in technology improving area but also in development of new experimental methods and the valid standards updating. Therefore the 19th Conference on Coatings and Thin Films will focus on practical aspects and advances in:

  • Nitriding, Carburizing Technologies and Advances in Chemical Heat Treatment
  • Thin Film Growth
  • Organic Thin Films
  • Mechanical Properties and Stress
  • Diagnostics, Structure-Properties Relationship
  • Hard Coatings
  • Simulation of chemical heat treatment
  • Equipment for heat treatment
  • Industrial processes
  • Complex, combined, joint and duplex PVD, CVD technologies
  • Formation and properties of layers
  • Surface treatment by Plasma, Laser, Electron beam
  • Modeling and simulation of processes and layers, thermodynamics and kinetics of processes
  • Coatings and layers in technical standards

  •  The aims of conference will present a new knowledge in said area and to make contacts between participants coming from different branches of industry, universities and academic institutions. We should like to expand this forum to a broader international audience to establish and improve international contacts.
