Call for Abstracts Opens for AMPP Annual Conference + Expo

In 2022, the AMPP Annual Conference + Expo will bring together Coatings+ and the CORROSION Conference & Expo to serve as the leading global source of knowledge, innovation, networking, and collaboration for those in the coatings and corrosion industry. The event will take place from March 6-10, 2022, in San Antonio, Texas, USA.

Attendees can expect a robust program featuring new technical sessions, standards and administrative meetings, networking events, and a full exposition, with select content available in an on-demand format after the event.

Technical Symposia

AMPP is currently accepting abstracts for technical papers to be shared at the event. Technical symposia at the AMPP Annual Conference + Expo are designed to allow professionals to share the latest industry knowledge and methods before it is available in popular literature.

Featuring nearly 500 technical paper presentations across 35 different topics, the event is packed with information exchanges and sessions on such subjects as anodic/cathodic protection, bridge and infrastructure coatings and corrosion, coating application, direct assessment, military coatings and corrosion, pipeline integrity, and surface preparation.

Technical symposia in 2022 are currently scheduled to include:

  • AC Interference, AC Induced Corrosion, AC Risk Assessment, Monitoring and Mitigation Details
