Thursday’s AMPP Symposiums Offer Unique Learning Opportunities

A number of specialized learning opportunities are being offered Thursday at the 2024 AMPP Annual Conference + Expo. Several symposiums will be available to choose from, including the following.

The “Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion” symposium will be chaired by Jodi Wrangham and vice-chaired by Jason Lee. It will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time in room 223.

This symposium will feature technical papers on microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) - corrosion affected by the presence or activity of microorganisms. The diagnosis, mitigation and monitoring of MIC will be detailed across multiple industries including oil and gas, water and wastewater, and maritime. Concentration on any aspect of MIC, including microbiological, chemical, electrochemical, and material science, is welcome. Causal, mechanistic and preventative studies are encouraged.

The “Modernization of Corrosion and Coating Research” symposium will be chaired by Rebekah Wilson and vice-chaired by Carolyn Ortiz. It will take place from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. local time in room 219.

This symposium will feature technical papers on nonconventional methods developed or utilized in research that have, or will, advance the way corrosion and coating R&D is conducted. This can include, but not limited to, innovative analysis platforms, machine learning, data analytics, software development, or efforts to improve accuracy/precision/efficiency of established standards.

The “Corrosion of Reinforced Concrete Structures: Coatings and Concrete” symposium will be chaired by Samanbar Permeh and vice-chaired by Kingsley Lau. It will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time in room 218.

This symposium will feature technical papers on corrosion of rebar lead to structural degradation of reinforced concrete systems in the civil infrastructure.  Field practice and research continue to better understand the problem and provide effective practical solutions. This session is intended to provide a forum for practitioners and researchers in the technical areas of reinforced concrete and coatings to disseminate information and provide practical solutions for corrosion of the aging civil infrastructure.

These are just a few of the many symposiums available on Thursday. Be sure to check the conference schedule, so you don’t miss out on any of the interesting learning opportunities we have planned.
