Conference Overview & Highlights
“Surface Engineering for Sustainable Development”
The 50th International Conference on Metallurgical Coatings and Thin Films (ICMCTF 2024) will be held at the Town & Country Resort, San Diego, California, USA, from May 19-24, 2024. ICMCTF is the premier international conference in the field of thin film deposition, characterization, and advanced surface engineering, promoting a global exchange of ideas and information among scientists, technologists, and manufacturers. ICMCTF 2024 technical sessions will have an overarching theme that emphasizes materials, processes, and applications relevant for sustainable development and will include a related Topical Symposium. We also hope to see many of the major leaders of the conference to mark the 50th anniversary. The Conference includes more than 90 high-profile invited speakers, in over 40 sessions, across technical symposia, plenary and keynote lectures, short courses, an awards program, and daily social networking events.
A major exhibition of equipment, materials, technical literature, and new technologies is a key part of the conference. Attendees from all over the world come to present their findings, exchange ideas, share insights, make new friends, and often establish collaborations. The Conference typically draws 700 attendees.
