ASTM International Committee on Corrosion of Metals Invites Papers for 2017 Symposium

Press release date: Aug 21, 2015

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., – Papers are invited for a 2017 symposium sponsored by ASTM International Committee G01 on Corrosion of Metals. The symposium on Recent Advances in Electrochemical Techniques for Field Corrosion Monitoring and Laboratory Corrosion Measurements will be held Nov. 13-14, 2017, in Atlanta, Georgia.

Electrochemical techniques are widely used in corrosion monitoring, measurement and control. The symposium will provide a forum for discussing the recent advances in electrochemical techniques to monitor corrosion in the field and measure corrosion in the laboratory; identify opportunities to develop new standards on specific techniques and methodologies; and promote use of electrochemical techniques in field application.

The target audience includes civil, corrosion, integrity and materials engineers, as well as electrochemists, regulators, researchers and more. Papers from the event will be collected and published in an ASTM Special Technical Publication.

To participate in the symposium, presenters/authors must submit online the Abstract Submittal Form and attach a 250-300 word preliminary abstract no later than Nov. 1, 2015. The symposium chairman will notify you by Dec. 20, 2015, of your paper's acceptability for presentation at the symposium.
