The ECS Symposium is held biannually in rotation, on with the International Symposium of Coating Science and Technology (ISCST).

The ECS2021 will host distinguished keynote speakers and contributed talks from academia, research institutes and industry, as well as poster sessions and a commercial exhibition. Moreover, we , ECS2021, will host a pre-conference training course titled Dynamics of Liquid Film Coatings- Theory and Applications will take place on Monday 6th September.
