The forum, “Asset Preservation and Sustainability: Infrastructure Across Industry Sectors,” will highlight key issues and developments in corrosion and materials performance, reliability, safety, and cost.

The event is set for Sept. 20-21 at the University of Akron, where the National Center is located. UA offers the nation’s first and only bachelor’s degree in Corrosion Engineering.

The program will feature keynote speakers from the Department of Defense, Department of Transportation, and industry. Discussions will focus on the status and direction of preventive strategies, including coatings use, in non-technical and technical areas.
