Southwest Research Institute is excited to announce the second Automotive Corrosion Symposium scheduled for April 11-12, 2024. The Symposium is soliciting papers that provide perspective on automotive corrosion concerns facing the industry, precompetitive research aimed at addressing corrosion and corrosion mitigation strategies, governmental policies that have the potential to affect automotive corrosion, and lessons learned within the industry.
Speaker & Poster Abstracts
The theme for the 2024 Symposium is “Applied Corrosion Science for Next-Gen Vehicles.” We seek abstracts for both speakers and poster presentations. We encourage you to submit a relevant title and abstract for the opportunity to play an integral part in the symposium.
Topics sought include:
- Corrosion Testing and Prediction (correlation of accelerated lab test data to road data, service life prediction, prediction of failure modes/mechanisms, simulation, in-situ testing, etc.)
- Corrosion Protection Strategies (design strategies, materials and material combinations, surface treatments, coatings, pigments/corrosion inhibitors, sealants, waxes, etc.)
- Corrosion in alternative propulsion and energy storage systems
- Corrosion considerations for new automotive materials and processes
- Corrosion Case Studies
Abstracts will be accepted through February 1, 2024.
