Welcome Message from President of TACT 2023

Since being established in September 3rd, 1999, the Taiwan Association for Coating and Thin Film Technology (TACT) has been growing into the most active society in the field of thin-film and coating technology in Taiwan. Continuing the previous eight successful international conferences that include Asia CVD 2004, TACT 2009, TACT 2011, TACT 2013, TACT 2015, TACT 2017, TACT 2019 and TACT 2021, the forthcoming TACT 2023 will be held in Taipei on November 12-15, 2023.

TACT 2023 is an important biennial event for knowledge exchange and offers an interactive platform of networking and collaboration for the community from academia and industry. It will cover a wide spectrum of research topics related to thin-film, coating and plasma technologies for sustainable energy, semiconductors, optoelectronics, flexible devices, and protective, tribological, organic, biological and functional coatings.

Selected papers will be published in the special issues of "Thin Solid Films" and "Surface and Coatings Technology“.

More than 700 abstract submissions including invited and contributed papers as well as posters are expected to be presented, and around 800 researchers and engineers from more than 20 countries are expected to participate in the grand event.

The TACT 2023 features seven important symposia and one short course, namely:

  1. Coatings for sustainable energy
  2. Nanostructured and nanocomposite coatings
  3. Semiconductor, optoelectronic and flexible device films
  4. Tribological and protective coatings
  5. Organic and biological coatings
  6. Metallic and high-entropy alloy coatings
  7. Topical symposium: theory, simulation, and modeling; quantitative surface analysis

A group of internationally well-known scholars will be invited to deliver plenary, keynote and invited speeches in TACT 2023.

It is our pleasure to announce the TACT 2023 International Thin Films Conference. We cordially invite you to attend the conference. Look forward to seeing you at TACT 2023 in Taiwan.
