16th Coatings Science International 2020

The Leading European Conference on Coatings Science & Technology – Not just another Coatings Conference.

This conference is intended for researchers and research managers, active in the field of Science and Technology of Coatings both from industry and academia. Polymer, material and paint chemists, as well as surface and interface scientists, formulators, designers and industry policy makers will find in this conference a broad platform for combining and exchanging the latest developments of their disciplines. The conference is especially attractive to those who appreciate in-depth presentations and discussions on a high-quality standard.

Where other Conferences primarily try to reach a broad public and focus on commercial applications of new technologies, this Conference intends to focus on the scientific backgrounds of the newest technological developments relevant to Coatings.

Traditionally, we gather in the last week of June, in a convenient setting of a 5-star hotel in Noordwijk, a small Dutch town at the North Sea side, with a maximum of 120 participants. Coatings Science International breathes the atmosphere of a Gordon-type conference, reminiscent of the famous Athens Coatings Conferences (1974-2003). High-quality speakers, ample time for scientific discussions, and many opportunities to establish rewarding contacts are Conference values we want to uphold.

CoSI 2020, will take place in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, from 22 – 26 June 2020.

We are looking forward to meeting you there!

CoSI 2020 Cancellation Update: The CoSI Organizing Committee has been closely monitoring the Corona Virus situation and assessing risks. In view of the international developments and spread patterns, we believe that the necessary conditions to run CoSI 2020 safely will not be met. Regretfully, we have decided to cancel CoSI 2020.

Our current plan is to return to Noordwijk in 2021, in the last week of June (28th June- 02nd July). You can mark it already on your agenda. Thank you for your understanding in these unusual and uncertain times, and we hope to see you at the next CoSI edition in June 2021!
