ECNF 2018 is a 3-day conference which will offer a unique opportunity to share some of the latest R&D work in nanofilms and It will be open to all active researchers and industrialists covering communications related with coatings and nanofilms developed by a wide range of processing techniques including ALD, CVD, MBE, plasma and thermal spray, PVD (evaporation, cathodic arc, sputtering, HiPIMS and PLD), and Sol-gel.

The six topics which are covered are:

  1. Protective and tribological coatings
  2. Thin films for energy conversion, catalysis and related processes
  3. From atoms to sheets: growth and tribology of thin films
  4. Functionalisation and characterisation of nanofilms
  5. 2D materials: graphene and beyond
  6. Sensors and instruments based on nanofilms
