Thin film coatings and surface engineering are an integral part of many bio-medical devices. Many cardiovascular, orthopedic and other implants as well as extra-corporeal accessories require fatigue-resistant, high-strength materials coatings and bio/hemo-compatible surfaces to achieve the intended functionality. Novel concepts, technology and thinking in this field have enabled advancement in existing devices as well as development of futuristic devices.
International Workshop on Coatings and Surfaces for Bio medical engineering (IWCSB 2014) is an attempt to discuss the technological advancements, to share the ideas, disseminate the information and more importantly foster groups to pursue research in the field of in coatings & surface engineering for medical applications. Also, it is an excellent opportunity for the young researchers, academia and industry to explore this exciting field in its infancy.
