Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We are very pleased to invite you to the 18th edition of the European Conference on Organised Films, ECOF 18, that will be held in Évora, Portugal, from July 22nd to July 25th, 2024.

With high-standard plenary and keynote lectures, and the contributions of all participants, ECOF 18 will be the perfect multidisciplinary setting for significant and vivid scientific discussions. The scientific program will focus on cutting-edge developments in the fields of thin and ultrathin organic films, novel hybrid organic/inorganic structures and the related nanoscience and nanotechnology aspects. Aiming at promoting cross-fertilization of fundamental and applied research, ECOF 18 will offer stimulating opportunities for exchanging new ideas and the building up of new synergies.

Main topics:


  • Langmuir monolayers, LB and LS multilayers

  • Self-assembly and self-organised systems

  • Supramolecular architectures

  • Nanostructures and nanofabricated films

  • Nanoparticles, graphene and 2D materials for smart hybrid coatings
