The American Coatings Association (ACA) announced a call for technical papers and student posters for the 2011 CoatingsTech Conference, scheduled for March 14-16, 2011, at the Hilton Rosemont/Chicago O'Hare.

Carrying a theme of “The New Face of Innovation,” the second biennial conference will provide a multi-track forum for professionals in the coatings industry.

Also planned for the conference are the following technical-paper competition programs.

• Roon Awards—submitted abstracts must be directly related to the protective coatings industry, and the paper must be original work not previously published. The submission deadline is Sept. 15, 2010.
