2013 SVC TechCon Technical Program

Technical Program Dates: April 22-25, 2013
Rhode Island Convention Center  |  Providence, Rhode Island, USA



This year’s conference features two application-specific themes, which are embodied by our symposia on “Coatings and Surface Treatments for Medical Applications” and “Thin Films for Photovoltaics and Batteries.” In addition, we will offer 12 traditional sessions focused on our core technologies. Our symposia both define and unite the 2013 TechCon by touching on topics and technologies that span the broad capabilities within the SVC community. In doing so, we connect basic research with industrially relevant “problems” and this bridge serves as the framework on which all of the major activities as well as our outstanding education program are based. Our business-friendly environment is evident in our unmatched exhibition, numerous networking events, and sessions tailored to the scientist and engineer – no other organization links innovation with business like the SVC.
