All accepted papers will be published in the digital conference proceedings which will be Indexed by  all major citation databases such as Ei Compendex, SCOPUS, Google Scholar, Cambridge Scientific Abstracts (CSA), Inspec, SCImago Journal & Country Rank (SJR), EBSCO, CrossRef,  Thomson Reuters (WoS), etc. 

A selection of papers will be chosen to be published in journals.


ISSCI 2018 welcomes researchers, engineers, scientists and industry professionals to an open forum where advances in the field of Surfaces, Coatings and Interfaces can be shared and examined. The conference is an ideal platform for keeping up with advances and changes to a consistently morphing field. Leading researchers and industry experts from around the globe will be presenting the latest studies through papers and oral presentations.
