So far, more than 380 oral presentations and around 100 posters have been registered for the event. These submissions encompass all of the Working Parties and Task Forces devoted to the various aspects of corrosion and its prevention.  Together with this extensive scientific programme, the following renowned colleagues will give plenary lectures.

Prof. Stuart Lyon (The University of Manchester, Corrosion and Protection Centre, Manchester, UK): European Corrosion Medal lecture.

Prof. Maria Forsyth (Deakin University, Institute for Frontier Materials, Burwood, Australia): “Environmentally friendly multifunctional corrosion inhibitor systems”.

Prof. Fabrizio Zucchi (University of Ferrara, Centro di Studi sulla Corrosione e Metallurgia « A. Daccò », Ferrara, Italy): Cavallaro Medal lecture.

Dr. Carol Frances Glover (University of Virginia, Centre for Electrochemical Science and Engineering, Charlottesville, VA, USA) Young EFC proposal: “The many colours of metal-based primers: corrosion protection mechanisms and latest developments”.

Dr Oumaïma Gharbi (Sorbonne Université, Campus Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France) Young EFC proposal: “The additive manufacturing of high strength Al alloys: a new challenge in corrosion science”.

Registration for the virtual EUROCORR 2020 is now open. Further details can be found at: www.eurocorr.org.
