The impact of coatings and interfaces in technology is growing at an unprecedented pace. Energy, sustainable mobility, pollution control, critical raw materials, preservation of cultural heritage, control of materials degradation, food safety, and health science are all challenges that critically depend on our capability to engineer surfaces. The aim of the CIC2021 is to give scientists and professionals a unique opportunity to keep up with this quickly evolving field, by providing a comprehensive overview of the latest findings regarding the fundamentals and application of coatings and interfaces.

CIC2021 will bring together scientists and technologists from academia and industry, encouraging the involvement of excellent early-stage investigators. Participants will have the opportunity to share their most recent findings with a focus on the following areas of Coatings and Interface Science and Technology:

  • Coatings for mitigation of corrosion, wear, and erosion;
  • Bioactive coatings, surfaces, and interfaces;
  • Advances in coating deposition and surface functionalization;
  • Coatings for food packaging and preservation;
  • Coatings and interfaces in cultural heritage preservation and restoration.

After the conference, the Scientific Committee will select abstracts for which extended papers may be included for publication in a Special Issue of the open access journal Coatings (the submission to the journal is independent from the conference proceedings and will follow the usual process of the journal, including peer review and an 20% discount on APC).
