The call for abstracts is now open for technical symposia at CORROSION 2018, NACE International’s annual conference and exhibition for the corrosion control industry.
Abstracts will be accepted through May 8, 2017. All authors with accepted abstracts will be expected to give a presentation at the conference, to be held from April 15-20, 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona.
The symposium is seeking technical papers from end-users, product developers, consultants, academics, and others on all aspects of the development, application, and use of systematic corrosion management processes in industry, infrastructure, government, and military applications.
The papers may address the development and implementation of corrosion management systems (CMS) and economics, as well as specific product developments such as monitoring tools, software prediction tools, and chemical treatments to support the CMS.
The purpose of these products, tools, and treatment should be clearly defined within the CMS.
Papers on the practical challenges of developing and implementing systematic CMS are encouraged. Papers conducting an analysis of the costs and safety and environmental benefits of implementing systematic CMS—as well as those analyzing cost benefits versus corrosion and material failures—are also desired.
All authors with accepted abstracts will be required to complete a copyright agreement, and they will also be expected to publish a paper to be included in official conference proceedings.
