    8RIPT in Limoges, 6-8 December 2017

    Dear Colleagues,

    Let me present you the fifth and last circular of the 8 RIPT meeting which will be held in Limoges from 6th to 8th December, 2017.

    The presentations about all aspects of thermal spraying, starting from the feedstock (powders, suspensions and solutions) by spray processes including cold spray as well as suspension and solution spray techniques and post spray treatment, up to characterization and applications of coatings are invited. The presentations about modeling of spray process and of behavior of coatings in service are also very welcome.

    The Organizing Committee have increased a bit the conferences fees in order to assure transport with a bus from center of Limoges the European Center of Ceramics where the meeting will take place. Moreover, the educational course for the newcomers in thermal spray field, proposed for the first time at 7RIPT,  is intended to be organized during the first day of the meeting on the December 6th. The theoretical lectures will be given by well knows scientists on the morning. The practical demonstration of thermal spray process and coatings characterization will take place on the afternoon. The number of attendees of the course is limited to preserve its high pedagogic quality.

    We would like to welcome the industrial partners to present their new products at the industrial exhibition.

    With regards

    Lech Pawlowski
