This is a Call for Contribution to the joint 4TU.HTM & M2i Workshop on Surfaces, Intrfaces & Coatings to be held on Thursday April 16, 2020 in Utrecht
Every material, also if applied for its bulk properties, has a surface or at least an interface to another material, where numerous dynamic processes can take place, down to the smallest length scales. These processes can form a threat for the material (like corrosion), but can also be beneficial or even essential for its functionality (like heat exchange). Coatings, introducing new surfaces and interfaces, can form an effective means to improve the functionality and/or life time of materials. Understanding surfaces and interfaces forms an intricate and essential part of materials science in its quest to optimise understanding and application of materials.
The 4TU.Research Centre High-Tech Materials and M2i are jointly organizing this scientific workshop on Surfaces, Interfaces & Coatings. The programm is still in development, but will certainly include speakers from universities and from industry.
Call for scientific contributions!
If you are interested in giving a contribution to this workshop, please contact Reina Boerrigter before February 15, providing the topic of your presentation and possibly a (work) title.
You are all invited!
Please, also invite your colleagues and research group members!
