  Conference Introduction

The Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the 8th International Conference on Surface Engineering (ICSE 2020).

Surface engineering is a multi-disciplinary field that involves a wide range of sciences and technologies. Unique surface properties including surface functionalization, surface strengthening, surface protection and surface decoration have been created by surface engineering. New and improved processes and coating materials are being researched and developed worldwide, which will contribute significantly to both technological and economic development. Surface Engineering Institution, CMES, is a well-established academic association, which has held consecutively 12 times the National Surface Engineering Conferences and 7 times the International Conferences on Surface Engineering (ICSE). These conferences had been very well attended by both domestic and overseas researchers and corporations. Shandong University of Technology (SDUT), founded in 1956, is now a provincial key university of science and engineering. The campus is situated in the city of Zibo, which is the cradle of ancient Qi-culture. SDUT collaborates with 97 universities and institutions in 27 countries in research, academic exchanges and teaching. In recent years, more than 3300 international students from over 40 countries and regions participated in our technology, language and cultural classes here and became the envoys of friendship in Sino-foreign relations.

The ICSE 2020 will deepen international collaboration and provide a conductive platform for academic exchanges and networking among researchers in the field of surface engineering and advanced manufacturing, and for companies to gain insight of the latest technology development in surface engineering and advanced manufacturing. 

We warmly welcome all researchers, engineers, academic publication media and companies to participate in the conference to present your latest research results, to network with your peers and collaborators, and to showcase your technologies and products.
