61st Corrosion Science Symposium (Online)

The 61st Corrosion Science Symposium (CSS) will be held online during the week commencing Monday 14th September 2020.  The CSS Online is the annual meeting for students and researchers working in all areas of Corrosion Science and Engineering.  The CSS has been held annually since its launch in 1960 by Prof. L.L. Shreir. Holding a physical event was not going to be possible this year but we believe it is important to keep the CSS running even during these COVID times.  There will be no charge for the event.

To register for the event please visit the Eventbrite page:  61st Corrosion Science Symposium

Abstracts are still being accepted.  Please contact Julian Wharton (j.a.wharton@soton.ac.uk) if you wish to submit an abstract.

With the alternative online arrangements, we plan a programme of several sessions staggered through the week.  Each session will focus on a series of short (10 min) presentations with extended abstracts made available beforehand.  The sessions will be immediately followed by more in-depth online open forum discussion with the presenters.

A key highlight for every CSS is U.R. Evans plenary talk and presentation of the award.  The UR Evans Award is the most prestigious ICorr award and recognises outstanding contributions to corrosion science and engineering.  This year the award is being made to Prof Robert Cottis.  Prof Cottis has been a champion of corrosion education throughout his entire career with seminal contributions within UMIST/University of Manchester and activities linked to the European Federation of Corrosion (EFC) WP6 Corrosion Education and NACE International.
