The Australasian Corrosion Association (ACA) will host the industry-leading Corrosion and Prevention 2019 conference (C&P 2019) from 24th to 27th November at the Crown Promenade in Melbourne. This annual conference and trade exhibition brings together leading researchers and industry practitioners who combat corrosion on a daily basis.

C&P 2019 will showcase the latest technologies and techniques to mitigate corrosion. It has been estimated that governments and industries spend billions of dollars every year on corrosion mitigation and repair, making it vital to apply the latest technologies and practices to manage this threat.

Diverse technical streams will showcase the latest developments in corrosion prevention, ranging from scientific research to hands-on applications. Topics will include concrete corrosion and repair, steel corrosion, water infrastructure, cathodic protection of pipelines, asset management, high-temperature corrosion, non-ferrous metal corrosion and microbiologically influenced corrosion.

This year’s PF Thompson lecture will be delivered by Willie Mandeno, principal materials engineer of WSP Opus. He is an ACA life member and has specialised in the specification of engineering materials and protective coatings for more than 35 years. The ACA’s premier dedicated lecture marks Percival Faraday Thompson’s contribution by emulating the academic and technical qualities for which he was known.

In addition to the technical program, the exhibition will be an integral part of the activities, providing an opportunity for delegates to experience the latest products and services.

C&P 2019 will appeal to a wide range of industries including building and construction, cultural and historical materials preservation, defence, education and research, food processing, government, marine transportation and infrastructure, mining and resources, oil and gas, power generation and energy systems, and water and wastewater treatment.

As always, C&P 2019 will provide the premier venue for networking opportunities. Building on their well-established reputation, the social functions including the welcome function and exhibition, the ACA awards dinner and the farewell function will not disappoint.
