CALL FOR PAPERS







SECOND INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON ADHESION ASPECTS OF POLYMERIC COATINGS

To be held May 25-26, 2000; Robert Treat Hotel; Newark, NJ

This symposium will be the follow on to the first one which was held under the auspices of the Electrochemical Society in Minneapolis, MN, 1981 and will cover the progress and breakthroughs which have occurred in the interim. Polymeric coatings are used for a number of purposes, e.g., decorative, protective, functional (as dielectrics or insulators). Additionally, a special application of polymeric (organic) coatings is their use as lithographic materials for making integrated circuit elements. Irrespective of the purpose of the coating it must adhere well to the underlying substrate. The primary purpose of this Symposium is to bring out the various material/process parameters which influence the adhesion of polymeric coatings with a primary thrust on polymeric coatings which are organic in nature. All kinds of polymeric coatings (including primers and paints) irrespective of thickness (thin, thick, or bulk) and method of deposition (could be plasma, solution, vapor,... etc.) on a variety of substrates (metals, oxides, glass, polymers) will be considered.


Among the topics to be covered are:

This symposium is being organized under the direction of Dr. K. L. Mittal, Editor, Journal of Adhesion Science and Technology by MST Conferences, LLC. A proceedings volume is planned for this symposium and further details will be provided in due course. Please notify the conference chairman of your intentions to present a paper as early as possible. An abstract of about 200 words should be sent by March 1, 2000 to the conference chairman by any of the following methods:
