Dr. Mittal is an internationally recognized authority in the area of surface and adhesion science and is currently Director of MST CONFERENCES which sponsors courses and symposia in this field. Dr. Mittal is internationally renowned for having edited over 100 books covering many different aspects of adhesion and interface science. surface cleaning, particle adhesion and removal. surfactants, and high temperature polymers. Dr. Mittal currently serves or has served on the editorial boards of many journals and was the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Adhesion Science and Technology until April 2012. He has received many awards and honors from scientific and technical societies and was recognized for his contributions by the worldwide adhesion community by organizing in 1995 the 1st International Congress on Adhesion Science and Technology in his honor on his 50th birthday in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He was honored by the global surfactant community by inaugurating in 2002 the Kash Mittal Award in the surfactant field in his honor for his large efforts and significant contribution to the field of colloid and interface chemistry.

 He was honored by the Maria Curie-Sklodowska University . Lublin. Poland by awarding him the title of doctor honoris causa. In 2010 he was recognized for publication of his 100 edited books by two symposia held in his honor. Symposium on: Recent Advances in Adhesion Science and Technology, held at the American Chemical Society meeting in Boston, August 2010, and Symposium on: Surfactant Science and Technology: Retrospects and Prospects, held in Melbourne. Australia, November 2010.

He is the founding editor of the new journal Reviews of Adhesion and Adhesives as well as the new Book Series entitled Adhesion and Adhesives: Fundamental and Applied Aspects.

Dr. Mittal is currently engaged in consulting and giving courses in adhesion science and technology worldwide. In his current position as the Director of MST CONFERENCES, Dr. Mittal is seeking to provide a focal point for his broad expertise and organizational skills as a service to the academic and technical community worldwide by providing symposia and courses on the latest cutting edge developments in materials and interface science.

Dr. Robert Lacombe

Dr. Lacombe received his PhD. degree in Macromolecular Science from Case Western Reserve University and was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Massachusetts working on problems of polymer solution thermodynamics. He was an IBM senior level physicist for 17 years working on hybrid non-intrusive inspection and evaluation techniques, as well as problems of materials compatibility of both semiconductor and microelectronic packaging devices. He is an expert in the area of stress buildup in laminate structures and using the techniques of fracture mechanics in solving problems of delamination and cracking in composite devices. He has been a leader in the areas of materials characterization having published some of the first mechanical response data on monolayer nanostructures in the early 1980's. In addition, he has pioneered innovative uses of large scale computation using finite element methods and has applied this expertise directly to problems affecting product development and manufacturing. Dr. Lacombe is Chairman of MST Conferences and has organized over 50 international symposia since 1998. He is credited with over 40 publications and patents. Dr. Lacombe is a leading innovator in the field of subsurface inspection methods dealing with flaws in structural parts of aircraft, auto, marine and aerospace vehicles. As part of his activities with MST CONFERENCES he gives a semiannual course on ADHESION MEASUREMENT METHODS in conjunction with the symposia. As part of the course offering he has completed a 430-page volume on ADHESION MEASUREMENT METHODS: THEORY AND PRACTICE
