Materials Innovations in Surface Engineering 2015
The third international Materials Innovations in Surface Engineering conference is to be held on the 24th and the 25th November 2015, with a one-day training course to be held on the 26th November. The Conference will be held at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) campus at Gardens Point in the city.
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 utilization, 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.
The conference goal is to achieve a mix of high quality academic and industrial papers, which will provide delegates an insight into the innovative developments or trends in the industry. We expect that the conference will provide industry representatives, academic institutions and research centres the opportunity to showcase their skills and to foster relationships for future collaboration.
