The Australasian Corrosion Association will be hosting a two-day international symposium focusing on the latest advances in corrosion science and engineering at the Marriott Hotel, Melbourne on 24th and 25th July.

The event will bring together leading local and global corrosion experts, feature keynote presentations from 15 high calibre-international and Australian speakers, and showcase the latest advances in corrosion science and engineering. A panel discussion and open forum chaired by the association’s technical committee will be held at the end of both days and technical papers of high quality and substantial length will be available.

Engineering alloys will take centre stage in the first session, with a presentation on Alloy Design for Corrosion Resistance by John Scully from the University of Virginia, USA. Following this, Nick Birbilis from Monash University will discuss the latest insights into the corrosion of light metals.

The first day will also showcase the latest industry knowledge in corrosion resistant alloys, corrosion modelling and prediction, and cathodic protection.

In addition to the technical program, there will also be a trade exhibition, and attendees will have the opportunity to network during the morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea breaks. Rounding out the first day’s programme will be a networking cocktail function followed by the symposium dinner and awards presentation.

The second day will have a strong industry focus. At the heart of the morning sessions will be corrosion management in the oil and gas industry. Topics will include corrosion monitoring, microbiologically influenced corrosion and recent advances in investigating chemical inhibition of mild steel corrosion.

The afternoon sessions will shift to corrosion in the water and wastewater industry, with presenters sharing the latest industry knowledge on topics including: corrosion of cast iron water mains, degradation of plastic pipes and advances in condition assessment of water industry assets.

The symposium will conclude in style with a farewell cocktail function, providing an opportunity for further discussions and relationship building.
