Technical Conference  /  May 04, 2024  -  May 09, 2024

67th Annual SVC Technical Conference

The SVC Technical Conference takes place for the 66th time this year and is an important meeting point for experts in the field of vacuum coating technologies. The content of the conference combines research and production and offers participants insights into the latest trends and developments.

TechCon is divided into a scientific program, where different technologies and applications are presented, and an educational program, which offers a wide range of tutorials and courses. Thus, participants benefit from a wide range of opportunities for information and education.

In addition there will be an exhibition on May 09 and 10 with many different exhibitors from the industry.

This year the Fraunhofer IST is again participating with several contributions to the scientific program of the conference as well as a booth at the technical exhibition (booth number 104). In the following we give you an overview of all the institute's participations:
