The International Conference on Surfaces, Metallurgical Coatings, and Thin Films will be held at Lyon, France from February 15-16, 2021. It is as a premier event organized by OLC International and attracting a large attendance. The theme of the conference is “Future Development on Metal Coatings and Discovery of New Transparent Thin Film Materials” and it focuses on the latest research pertaining to advanced surface engineering thin-film deposition and characterization.
The event offers a forum and networking venue for scientists, researchers, and technologists from both industry and academia to present their latest research findings, share insights and exchange ideas covering different aspects of surface engineering and thin films.
It further addresses the theoretical, experimental, and manufacturing issues associated with the development of new coating materials and proposes new methods for the analysis and characterization of commercial applications.
While the technical program of the conference discusses the latest research trends and future possibilities in the development and utilization of metal coatings and thin films, parallel events including exhibitions and workshops showcase the latest equipment materials and services used for characterization of coatings and thin films.
The conference is an ideal stage for eminent scientists, researchers, professors, students, policymakers, members of associations and policymakers to network among each other and find new dimensions that help in expanding their academic and business horizons. It includes several keynote presentations from highly eminent scientists in the field together with informative and truly educating plenary talks and oral presentations. Video, oral and poster presentations reflecting on current research outcomes, challenges, and possible solutions inspire the students to find new ways in continuing their research effectively.
Subsequent events including roundtable discussions, technical workshops, and social gatherings allow the participants to foster new connections to further their research and business goals. We hope this conference will help you curate new ideas while you have a great experience visiting this historical city.
We look forward to welcoming you to SMCT-2021 in Lyon, France.
Lyon, the capital city in France’s Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, sits at the junction of the Rhône and Saône rivers. Its center reflects 2,000 years of history from the Roman Amphithéâtre des Trois Gaules, medieval and Renaissance architecture in Vieux (Old) Lyon, to the modern Confluence district on Presqu'île peninsula. Traboules, covered passageways between buildings, connect Vieux Lyon and La Croix-Rousse hill.
Lyon’s Cathédrale Saint-Jean-Baptiste is built in Flamboyant Gothic style, and the ornate hilltop basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière has sweeping views. The Musée des Beaux-Arts, in a 17th-century convent, holds significant French paintings and decorative arts. The art nouveau Musée Lumière stakes Lyon’s claim as the birthplace of cinema. Place Bellecour is a vast pedestrian square lined with cafes and shops. The city is renowned across France for its gastronomy and traditional “bouchon” restaurants.
When to visit: Peak periods include the spring (April–May) and fall (October–December). During the renowned Fête des Lumières (early Dec), the city is illuminated with candles and colorful sound-and-light shows. Other key events include the Nuits de Fourvière (Jun–Jul), featuring open-air performances in the Fourvière district’s Roman amphitheater, and Biennale d’Art Contemporain (Sep–Dec, odd-numbered years).
