Special Issue "Selected Papers from the ICEIM 2019"
A special issue of Coatings (ISSN 2079-6412).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 29 December 2019
Innovative materials play a significant role in construction, industries, defense, the medical field, and agricultures. The current challenges in innovative materials include improving manufacturing performance, incorporating new functionalities, and reducing cost for global competitiveness. The ICEIM 2019 conference provides a platform to disseminate, to all branches of engineering and innovative materials, the most recent and relevant sustainable innovations, theories, and practices.
The ICEIM 2019 conference will focus on four main themes that are currently hot areas in the field of engineering and innovative materials: 1. Materials science and engineering; 2. materials properties, measuring methods, and applications; 3. methodology of research and analysis and modeling; 4. materials manufacturing and processing.
Within these four main themes, several topics will be discussed during the conference, including but not limited to:
- Processes for coating deposition and modification;
- Characterization techniques in surface coating;
- Functional, protective, and decorative coatings;
- Nanomaterials for coatings at high temperature;
- Materials for packaging;
- Applied surface science;
- Adsorption, adhesion, functionalization;
- Fundamental and functional properties of surface and interfaces;
- Theoretical analysis and computational modeling of surfaces and interfaces;
- High surface area systems: Colloids, nanoparticles, large interfaces.
Coatings will publish a selection of papers related to the meeting in the form of regular articles as well as critical reviews and perspectives. Your contribution is very welcome!
