Welcome to the 14th European ON SITE and ONLINE Coating Symposium
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. The ECS Symposium is held biannually in rotation, on with the
International Symposium of Coating Science and Technology (ISCST).
ECS2021 will take place in Brussels, Belgium, and is organized jointly
by the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics (VKI) and the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB).
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, the ECS2021 will host a pre-conference training course titled Dynamics of Liquid Film Coatings- Theory and Applications. The course will take place on Monday 6th September at the von Karman Institute. The registration to this course is not included in the symposium fee; separate registration is required.
The symposium will take place both online and on site.
More information about schedule and online streaming sessions will be given here.
If the COVID situation requests it, the ECS2021 will move to a full online symposium.
