Avactec will participate in IBERTRIVA 2019 conference

Avactec will participate and sponsor the IBERTRIVA 2019 conference, organized by the Spanish Association of the Void and its Applications (ASEVA) in Seville from June 26 to 28.

IBERTRIVA 2019 will hold the RIVA conference and the IBERTRIB biennial symposium in the city of Seville.

The RIVA conference is organized every two years by the Spanish and Portuguese Vacuum Society (ASEVA and SOPORVAC).

Similarly, IBERTRIB is a biennial symposium that brings together researchers working in Tribology of Spain and Portugal, changing the location between both countries.

In the 2019 edition, both meetings will be held together in the pleasant city of Seville, organized by the Institute of Materials Science of Seville (CSIC-University of Seville) at the Isla de la Cartuja Scientific Research Center (cicCartuja) .

This would be a special opportunity to bring together scientists from both communities, academia and industry, sharing their results, advances and new challenges.


Topics covered by the joint conference are:

Tribology (surface treatments and coatings, lubricants and additives, friction and wear, lubrication of machine elements, bio-tribology, virtual modeling of dry and film contacts, case studies in tribology).

Applied surface science and vacuum applications (electronic materials and processing, biointerfaces, nanometer structures, plasma science and technology, surface engineering, thin films, vacuum science and technology, hard coatings).

A special session will be devoted to “Surface Treatments and Coatings prepared by Vacuum techniques“ in cooperation with CyTeS group, specialized in science and technology of surfaces.


A short course is scheduled on Tuesday, 25th on “Patterning and structuration of surfaces” organized by CyTeS.
It will cover the fundaments, methodology and applications of the most advanced techniques in micro- and nanostructuration of surfaces.

The tutorial will cover the following parts:

  • Nanolitography processes.
  • Chemical processes.
  • Technics based on ion and electron beams.
  • Laser processing techniques.
  • Additive fabrication.
