13th International Workshop on Application of Electrochemical Techniques to Organic Coatings

28 - 31 May 2024

Egmond aan Zee, the Netherlands

The 13th International Workshop ‘’Application of Electrochemical Techniques to Organic Coatings’’ (AETOC) will take place in Egmond aan Zee, the Netherlands, from May 28th to 31st, 2024

(EFC event No. 475).

Abstracts should be sent by email to aetoc24@tudelft.nl by March 1, 2024. Acceptance notification will be communicated within Mar. 8, 2024.

AETOC workshop has been organized every two years and took place previously in Val di Fiemme (Italy), Schliffkopf (Germany), Jurata (Poland), Sintra (Portugal), Villard de Lans (France), Bayona (Spain), Grado (Italy), Mons (Belgium), Emmetten (Switzerland), Ile de Ré (France), Billerbeck (Germany), and Valencia (Spain). We’ll host this year’s workshop in Egmond aan Zee, the Netherlands.

Egmond aan Zee, nestled on the North Sea coast of the Netherlands 30 km away from Amsterdam, boasts a picturesque seaside setting with sandy beaches and historic charm, offering visitors a tranquil escape enriched by its iconic lighthouse and proximity to the beautiful dunes of the North Holland Dune Reserve.

The meeting falls under the auspices of the European Federation of Corrosion - Working Party 14 -Coatings. This workshop has always provided opportunities for the delegates to exchange new ideas, establish research relations, and find global partners for future collaborations. The language of the workshop will be English.

We sincerely hope to meet you in the fruitful, inspiring, and friendly atmosphere that has always distinguished AETOC from the other scientific conferences.



AETOC workshop deals with all the topics related to recent developments in the application of electrochemical techniques to the study and monitoring of organic coatings, as well as novel hybrid (i/o) sol-gel and composite coatings with self-healing and protective properties.

Topics of particular interest include:

  • Electrochemical studies of organic coatings;
  • Electrochemical studies of hybrid (i/o) sol-gel and composite coatings
  • Electrochemical studies of surface conversion layers to improve paint adhesion and durability
  • Electrochemical characterisation of smart organic layers
  • Electrochemical techniques to assess the properties of green and sustainable materials for novel    organic coatings;
  • Service life assessments thorough electrochemical methods;
  • Combination of electrochemical techniques to study corrosion inhibitors for paints;
  • Novel electrochemical methods to study sol-gel based and organic coatings;
  • Electrochemical sensors to monitor organic coatings degradation;
  • Modelling of electrochemical properties of organic coatings.
