The International Society of Coating Science and Technology (ISCST) has elected Professor Emeritus Brian G. Higgins President of ISCST for 2017-18. In September 2018, Professor Higgins will preside over the 19th ISCST symposium in Long Beach, California. The ISCST is a technical society formed by an international group of academic and industrial scientists and engineers to foster fundamental understanding of liquid-applied coating processes. ISCST organizes the biennial ISCST Symposium, the world’s premier forum for presenting new advances in the coating/drying/wetting mechanisms related to coating process fundamentals, with applications to printing, flexible electronics, and energy storage devices, such as batteries and super capacitors. More details can be found on the ISCST website.
