Conference on Electrophoretic Deposition (EPD 2017) held in Gyeongju, South Korea. Prof. O. van der Biest, one of the pioneers of the applications of EPD in materials science, has co-chaired with Prof. Boccaccini all conferences of the international conferences series on EPD, which started in 2002. Speakers from different countries who have collaborated with Prof. van der Biest in different stages of their careers gave lectures at the symposium, which finalized with a special lecture by Prof. van der Biest entitled: “Research on Electrophoretic Deposition in hindsight and foresight”.
