Past CSAT Workshops

The CSAT Technical Committee wishes to thank the attendees of the 2016 CSAT workshop at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI).  It was the largest international gathering to date with over 285 registered participants in 2016 (over 214 people in 2014 and over 204 participants in 2015).  CSAT continues to grow, which serves as a testimony to the worldwide interest in cold spray.  Many thanks to Dr. Rick Sisson, Dr. Diran Apelian, and the WPI staff for hosting the event and to Ms. Faye Kann, CSAT Coordinator.  Their expertise and willingness to go beyond the call of duty has helped make CSAT an outstanding success.

Many compliments were received regarding the program content and the manner in which the meeting was held. The informal atmosphere encouraged discussion, as well as lively debate, over many important topics including differences between various cold spray systems and structural applications of cold spray.

Please note that all briefings (presentations) that have been made public can be accessed on this website. Click on the 2016 CSAT Workshop link on the right to launch the presentations that are public.

Next year, we plan to allow more time for networking, which will allow us even greater flexibility in the schedule.  

Finally, I wish to thank all the presenters and encourage those who wish to present at future CSAT workshops to submit an abstract by February 1 to me or Faye.  Thanks again for a very fine workshop. We look forward to next year's CSAT workshop!


Victor Champagne, CSAT Technical Program Chairman
