SMT30 is the annual conference on Surface Modification Technologies.

The 30th International Conference on Surface Modification Technologies (SMT30) is aimed at fostering research on surface engineering, promoting related international cooperation among scientists and engineers and providing means for the public dissemination of the results from these efforts.

SMT30 is intended to cover progress on all aspects of surface modification techniques, from both the macroscopic and microscopic viewpoints. The conference interest includes both industrial materials, e.g., metals, alloys, polymers, ceramics, composites, and advanced materials and processes under development or used in particular applications.

The conference brings together users, producers and researchers, both engineers and scientists who have a common interest in various aspects of materials behavior. The objective is to facilitate and encourage the exchange of knowledge and 
experience among different communities involved in using, improving, developing, assessing and conducting basic and applied.

Special sessions and symposia

The following special sessions are announced:

  1. Residual Stresses in Surface Layers (based on FP7 ISTRESS European Project) (Chair: M. Sebastiani)
  2. Surface Modification for Tribological Applications (Chairs : M. Staia, G. Bolelli, L. Lusvarghi) - This session is intended to cover all aspects of surface engineering processes, such as thin film and metallurgical coatings deposition, as well as surface modifications treatments applied to bulk materials, able to improve their tribological performance (friction and wear). Contributions are invited on any aspect presenting the relationships between mechanical and structural properties of the engineered surfaces with their tribological response. Special interest will also be given to papers which address the tribological behavior of materials in different harsh environments, such as corrosive, high temperature, high contact pressure, etc. with applications in different industries such as aerospace, biomedical, cutting tools, ground transportation, etc..  
  3. Laser based applications for surface engineering (Chairs: B. Previtali, A. Astarita, P. Carlone)
  4. Shot peening and related surface mechanical treatments (Chair: A. Zammit)
  5. Laser Shock Processing (Chairs: J. Ocana, R. Jagdheesh )

    The Venue

    SMT30 will be hosted at Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI), Campus Bovisa. POLIMI is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe and is the largest technical university in Italy. The Campus is well served by public buses, suburban trains and metro lines.

  • Via Montenapoleone

    The Venue

    Milan is the second largest Italian town, the main industrial, commercial and financial centre of the country, recognized as a major world fashion and design capital.

  • Naviglio

    The Venue

    Milan is characterized by its dynamism, creativity and innovation. It’s a city that creates its own trends: art galleries in bars, concerts in libraries, aperitifs and happy-hours along the channel Naviglio.

  • Duomo - Scala

    The Venue

    Milano is also full of historical and cultural monuments and sites: the Cathedral (Duomo), a masterpiece of Gothic Architecture, the Castle, the Opera House “Alla Scala”, the famous mural painting Last Supper of Jesus Christ by Leonardo Da Vinci are examples of what Milan offers to visitors.

  • Milan - Rome - Florence

    The Venue

    From Milan is also easy to reach other very fascinating places, rich of culture and art masterpieces: Lake Como, with its botanic gardens and historical villas, and the Alps are less than one hour far. Florence is 1h30’ hours far by using the high-speed trains (Rome is 2h50’ distant) and the wonderful sea area called “5 Terre” can be visited in a one day trip.

  • Malpensa

    The Venue

    Milan is one of the most accessible cities in Europe: with 3 international airports (Malpensa, Linate and Orio al Serio) provides direct connections with all the most important European Airports and the many cities in North and South America as well as  in Asia and is well served by public transport systems, both urban, suburban and regional.

How to get there

Milan is conveniently located in the heart of Europe and can be easily reached from all over the globe.

By air: Malpensa is the main airport and serves intercontinental and domestic flights. European and domestic flights also land at Linate airport (just outside the city). In addition, Bergamo airport is a major hub for low-cost airlines. From Malpensa a direct train goes to Cadorna Station and Central Station, in the center of the city. You can get the center of the city also by bus. From Linate the urban bus n. 73 goes to the center of the citiy (Piazza San Babila). Bergamo (Orio al Serio airport) is connected to the Central Station, Milan, by bus.

By train: Milan is a major railway hub. The main Italian cities are just a few hours away by high-speed train. Direct connections to France, Switzerland, Germany and Austria are also available.

By car: A dense network of motorways connects Milan to other Italian cities and to the rest of Europe. The conference venue is the Bovisa campus of Politecnico di Milano, just a few minutes away from the city center and directly connected to Malpensa airport by train.
