Eleventh International Conference on HIPIMS 2021

Date: March 2021

The 11th International Conference on HIPIMS 2020/21 will take place in Sheffield, UK on 10th and 11th March 2021.

This will combine both HIPIMS 2020 and HIPIMS 2021 and be the only HIPIMS Conference event in 2021.

HIPIMS 2020/21 is a unique international conference with a focus on High Power Impulse Magnetron Sputtering to address the needs of the evolving community of users.

Organised by the Joint Sheffield Hallam University - Fraunhofer Institute IST HIPIMS Research Centre in Sheffield, the Henry Royce Institute, UK, the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, UK, Surface Engineering Association, UK and INPLAS, Germany, the conference follows a successful ten-year run as an international event and 6-year run of the HIPIMS Days in Sheffield, UK.

For 2020/21 we are expanding the scope of the conference to include a broader spectrum of surface treatment technologies and coatings. To promote this, we are dedicating the afternoon session on day 2 and a following panel discussion chaired by the Surface Engineering Association CEO Dave Elliott to the extended programme.

We also would like to encourage companies from the surface treatment and coatings communities to take part in our industrial exhibition.
