MegaRust 2018 Call for Papers and Call for Student Posters Now Open

Theme: Corrosion Control:  Enabling Affordability, Mission Readiness and Force Extension

MegaRust is conducted annually to provide a consolidated focus on Navy corrosion issues. Corrosion is a major factor in the readiness and total ownership cost of naval systems and this conference is intended to provide updated information on programs, policies, standards and Fleet experience related to corrosion and to promote discussion and sharing of information on technologies and strategies for controlling corrosion. 

The conference provides an impartial forum for dialogue between government, industry, academia, and end users. Participants include those involved with research and development, design, engineering, construction, maintenance, modernization and operation of naval systems that are potentially affected by corrosion. The conference covers all segments of the naval services including sea, air, Marine Corps, vehicles, and facilities.
