The latest advances in corrosion mitigation
THE INDUSTRY leading Corrosion and Prevention 2018 (C&P2018) conference hosted by the Australasian Corrosion Association ( ACA) is fast approaching, reminds the organisation. The annual conference and trade exhibition brings together leading researchers and industry practitioners who combat corrosion on a daily basis.
The ACA will welcome delegates to C&P2018 at the Adelaide Convention Centre in South Australia 11-14 November. Showcasing the latest advancements in corrosion mitigation, C&P2018 is the largest corrosion conference and exhibition in the Southern Hemisphere.
As always, the focus of the ACA’s annual conference and trade exhibition will be the safe and effective management of the continuing challenge posed by corrosion. It has been estimated that industries and governments spend billions of dollars every year on corrosion mitigation and repair, making it vital that the latest technologies and practices are applied to managing this insidious threat.
More than 400 delegates are expected to attend the conference and extensive exhibition supported of key industry suppliers. Industry experts will deliver five plenary presentations – including the P F Thompson Lecture, which will be delivered by Professor Brian Kinsella, Curtin University, Australia. The lecture commemorates the work of corrosion science pioneer, P F Thompson, and has been delivered every year at the ACA’s annual conference since 1951.
With 90 abstracts submitted, the conference is set to provide the latest information and industry knowledge concerning corrosion prevention, control and repair. C&P2018 will appeal to a broad range of industries including water/wastewater, oil & gas, building & construction, transport infrastructure, mining and asset management.
Topics covered will include advances in asset management; cathodic protection; concrete corrosion and repair; corrosion mechanisms, high temperature corrosion; steel corrosion; modelling and prediction; materials selection and design, and protective coatings.
As always, C&P2018 will provide the premier venue for networking opportunities for delegates to network with colleagues and peers. Social functions including the Welcome Function and Exhibition, ACA Awards Dinner and Farewell Function are included in your C&P2018 registration.
