Welcome Message from the President of TACT 2023

  Since its establishment on September 3, 1999, the Taiwan Association for Coating and Thin Film Technology (TACT) has steadily grown into the most dynamic organization within the realm of thin-film and coating technology in Taiwan. Building upon the success of our eight previous international conferences, which include Asia CVD 2004, TACT 2009, TACT 2011, TACT 2013, TACT 2015, TACT 2017, TACT 2019, and TACT 2021, we are excited to announce the first post-pandemic international conference, TACT 2023, scheduled to take place in Taipei from November 12 to 15, 2023.

  TACT holds great significance as a biennial gathering designed for the exchange of knowledge and provides an interactive platform for networking and collaboration within the academic and industrial community. The TACT2023 conference will encompass a wide range of research topics relating to thin-film, coating, and plasma technologies in areas such as sustainable energy, semiconductors, optoelectronics, flexible devices, and protective, tribological, organic, biological, and functional coatings. We are proud to have received endorsements from esteemed organizations including AVS (American Vacuum Society), KVS (Korean Vacuum Society), TFS (Thin Films Society), JVSS (Japan Society of Vacuum and Surface Science), and TVS (Taiwan Vacuum Society). We express our gratitude to the National Science and Technology Council for their invaluable support, as well as to the dedicated team at the National Taipei University of Technology and the numerous local and international scholars who have made significant contributions to the conference.

  With over 500 abstract submissions, including invited and contributed papers, as well as posters, TACT 2023 promises to be a platform for over 600 researchers and engineers from more than 20 countries to engage in this significant event. Selected papers will be published in special issues of prestigious journals such as "Thin Solid Films" and "Surface and Coatings Technology” after rigorous review processes.

  On behalf of TACT, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to all attendees. We invite you to savor your time in Taiwan and enjoy the enriching experience that TACT 2023 promises to offer.
