Welcome from the Chairs

Welcome from the Chair of the 2nd Coatings and Interfaces Web Conference

15–31 May 2020

Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to invite you to join the 2nd Coatings and Interfaces Web Conference (CIWC2020) that will be hosted online by https://ciwc2020.sciforum.net/.

Coatings and interfaces play a crucial role in current technology and have critical importance in addressing major societal challenges. Among them energy efficiency, sustainable mobility, pollution, critical raw materials, biomaterials, pavement surface, corrosion wear and erosion, food safety and health science are of outstanding importance. CIWC will present the state-of-the-art of coatings and of the interface science and technology related to these issues.

CIWC 2020 aims to promote and advance the exciting and rapidly changing field of surfaces, coatings and interfaces. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Biocoating and biomaterial surfaces and interfaces;
  • Coatings and surfaces for mitigating wear, erosion and corrosion;
  • Advances in High Temperature Coatings and surfaces;
  • Hybrid Surface Coatings & Process;
  • Applications of Pavement Surface Coatings;
  • Coatings, surfaces and interfaces for food safety and preservation;
  • Deposition and Modification on Surfaces;
  • Advances in coatings and surface characterization.

CIWC 2020 will enable you to share and discuss your most recent research findings with the worldwide vibrant community of scientists and engineers in the field.

CIWC 2020 will make your presentation accessible to hundreds of researchers worldwide, with the active engagement of the audience in question and answer sessions and discussion groups that will take place online.

Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the conference committee. The authors of accepted contributions will be invited to produce an extended abstract for the conference proceedings along with a slide presentation of their work. Following the conference, outstanding contributions will be invited to be submitted for publication in Coatings (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/coatings).

CIWC 2020 is a new and exciting experience for me that I believe that it is a taste of the future. CIWC will revolutionize dissemination in the field with a brand-new tool for sharing research in an online environment that will preserve the same standards and structure of traditional conferences but will be more inclusive by breaking the cost and time barriers that prevent participation in remote events. ICTs are shaping our world; let’s make them change the way we communicate science!

I hope you will join us and present your work at CIWC, and be part of this thriving online experience.

Kind regards,

Dr. Alessandro Lavacchi
Prof. Dr. Andriy Voronov
