Organising Chairman, INCASE 2021

Encouraged by the support for the inaugural International Conference on Advanced Surface Enhancement (INCASE) in 2019, the Advanced Remanufacturing and Technology Centre (ARTC) is organising the 2nd INCASE on 6th – 9th Sept 2021 in the wonderful island of Singapore.


The organisation of INCASE 2021 was motivated by: 

  • Advances in modelling and response prediction of newly designed surfaces

  • Increased interests in surfaces of additive manufactured components

  • Progress made in surface characterisation at varied length scales

  • Advances in tailoring the electro-thermo-opto-mechanical properties of surfaces

  • Need to reduce our carbon print through effective use of resources

Following the success of INCASE 2019, we welcome the community to participate in INCASE 2021.


The objective of INCASE 2021 is to encourage academics, scholars and practitioners to meet and exchange ideas and views in a purposely designed setting that is conducive to stimulating discussions and respectful dialogue. It will offer an exceptional opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new friendships, and enabling partnerships across national borders. 

This unique platform will facilitate discussions around 5 main topics: Surfaces-by-Design, Surface Coatings; Surface Treatments; Modeling and Simulation; and Characterisation of Surfaces, Sub-surfaces and Interfaces. 

On behalf of the organising committee, I welcome you to INCASE 2021 and very much look forward to your participation to what promises to be a great event!
