Dr Renevier has participated each year to ICMCTF (The International Conference on Metallurgical coatings and Thin films) between 1997 and 2003 and to numerous international conferences. She has organised Euromat2005 in Prague a Symposium C4.1 Nanoscale Mechanical and Tribological Testing and she was rewarded by the organising committee for outstanding work. She has organised in 2005 a successful seminar with exhibition on Profit from Coated Cutting Tools with the participation of the main world coatings suppliers and tool manufacturers.
