12-15 Sep 2023 Paris (France)


Since 1995, the European Coating Symposium (ECS) brings together researchers from academia and industry to share and discuss advancements in liquid film coating science and related processes, from both fundamental issues of coatings (wetting, drying) and new applications including cosmetics, biomedical processes or art conservation. The ECS Symposium is held biannually, alternating with the International Symposium of Coating Science and Technology (ISCST).

ECS2023 is organized jointly by laboratories MSC (Matière et Systèmes Complexes), Université Paris Cité and FAST (Fluides, Automatique et Systèmes Thermiques), Université Paris-Saclay.

The ECS2023 will host distinguished keynote speakers and contributed talks from academia, research institutes and industry, as well as poster sessions and a commercial exhibition. Moreover, the ECS2023 will host a pre-conference training course, on tuesday september 12th, around the following topics: coating operations, wetting, drying, adhesion, interfaces. Both the course and the meeting take place on the campus of Université Paris Cité at the heart of Paris.
