Call for Student Posters - Rules and Regulations

The Student Poster Session at MegaRust encourages students to become active in research in corrosion and corrosion control of importance and benefit to military systems and facilities present and convey their results of their work. 2016 marks the first year in which a Student Poster Session will be held at this conference. Thus, it will be a fantastic opportunity for students and teachers from academia (especially in the Southern California area) to meet and interact with top DoD corrosion policy makers, movers and shakers, to become familiar with DoD’s top corrosion issues, and begin to develop networks critical to career development and future employment.

Each student can submit his/her poster from within any of the following subject areas that can be used for DoD applications and problem solutions:
• Corrosion Science, which is concerned with a fundamental understanding of corrosion phenomena
• Corrosion Engineering, which deals with the practical application of corrosion science to corrosion prevention, detection or control
• Corrosion Technology, which involves the development of tools, techniques, or systems that can be utilized for corrosion prevention, detection or control
• Corrosion and Materials Modeling and Simulation, which using computational methods to solve realistic models of relevant mechanisms and processes to predict the behavior of materials.
• Other Corrosion Related Areas, such as coatings and linings, cathodic/anodic protection, weatherproofing systems, hazmat reduction, failure analysis, training, inhibitors and pretreatments, repair technologies (including thermal spray) and tools, design methodologies, nanotechnologies, materials (including metals, composites, and ceramics), nondestructive testing, maintenance, corrosion monitoring technologies and systems (including sensors), fasteners, joining (welding, explosive bonding, etc.) technologies, and forms of corrosion (i.e., sensitization, crevice, stress corrosion cracking, galvanic, etc.).

Abstracts must be 200-300 words in length, single-spaced, and contain no photos, graphs or figures.

The posters are judged based on the following criteria:

• Scientific/engineering/technology approach
• Content
• Thoroughness
• Novelty of approach
• Potential impact on the corrosion community and/or the public
• Clarity and neatness of presentation

Chair: Mr. Tim Tenopir, Naval Warfare Center, Port Hueneme Division
Co-Chair: Mr. Matthew Sheehan, Naval Warfare Center, Port Hueneme Division

The application/abstract deadline for student posters at MegaRust 2016 Conference is April 29. By May 31 entrants will be notified as to whether or not their abstract has been accepted for inclusion.

Abstracts should be no longer than one page.
