The purpose of MISE 2020 is to provide a focused forum for the presentation of advanced research and improved understanding of various aspects of surface engineering. This conference will include invited lectures from internationally distinguished researchers, contributed presentations and posters.

Themes of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:

  • Case Histories, including Failure Analysis
  • Characterisation of Surfaces, Coatings and Films
  • Coatings and Thin Films for Extreme Industrial Environments
  • Education and Training Opportunities for Surface Engineering
  • Modelling and Simulation for Surface Engineering
  • Physical Vapour Deposited Coatings
  • Surface modification for Biomedical Applications
  • Surface Modification for Composites
  • Surface Modification for Industrial Applications (Energy Harvesting & Storage, Bespoke Engineering Solutions)
  • Thermal Spray Coatings
  • Weld Overlays and Laser Processing
  • Other Surface Technologies
