The program for the MISE 2020 conference has not been released as yet. So, be sure to keep an eye out for further information.

One of the premier surface engineering conferences, the international Materials Innovations in Surface Engineering (MISE) conference features a broad range of high quality academic and industrial keynote speakers, papers and presentations. The program will provide delegates in-depth insight into innovative developments and trends throughout the industry, and will give industry representatives, academic institutions and research centres the opportunity to showcase their skills and foster relationships vital for future collaboration.

Surface Engineering

Modification of a material’s surface to improve its performance is applicable to both metallic and non-metallic materials and is of interest to a myriad of sectors in industry, all of which are striving for innovation, lower production costs, improved utilisation, and lower downtime. This is particularly so for the supply of advanced manufactured technology and systems into Australia’s mining and energy industries which will soon begin their production phase to capitalise on the major construction investment over the past decade. Surface engineering is a broad topic and includes the application of organic and inorganic coatings, surface modification by heat treatment or chemical treatment or alloying, plating, weld overlays, thermal or cold spraying, to name but a few.
