Saturday (Aug. 14, 2010) is the deadline to submit abstracts for papers to be presented at the 2011 Waterborne Symposium in New Orleans.
The symposium, set for Feb. 28-March 4, 2011, is sponsored by The School of Polymers and High Performance Materials at the University of Southern Mississippi. The event draws leading experts in the field of polymer science and surface coatings.
Organizers are soliciting papers pertaining to new and emerging technologies related to materials, processes, production, characterization, application and markets in the field of surface coatings. Papers must be original and represent recent advancements in coatings science and related disciplines.
Papers will be selected based on the submitted abstracts. Papers judged to be principally commercial in nature will not be accepted.
Important symposium deadlines include:
Aug. 14, 2010: Abstract Submissions Due
Dec. 1, 2010: Early Bird Registration Discount
