NACE Student Poster Session

The NACE International Research Committee is again sponsoring its annual Student Poster Session during NACE's annual conference, CORROSION 2014 Conference & Expo, March 9-13, 2014, in San Antonio, Texas, USA, and would like to invite students to participate.

There will be $9,000 in total prize money awarded to the poster session winners. Prizes are awarded in three categories—the Mars Fontana Prize for the best posters in Corrosion Engineering, the Marcel Pourbaix Prize for the best posters in Corrosion Science, and the Harvey Herro Prize for the best poster in Applied Corrosion Technology. Prize awards are $1,500 for first place, $1,000 for second place, and $500 for third place in each category. A prize will also be awarded for the best undergraduate poster. In addition, the following incentives are being offered for all session participants:

  • Free one year student membership to NACE International—which includes access to Materials Performance and CORROSION journal
  • Free CORROSION 2014 Conference & Expo conference registration with access to technical symposia, meetings, exhibits, award lectures, and Research Topical and Research in Progress Symposia.
  • Opportunity for financial assistance from NACE regions and sections to attend conference.
  • Opportunity to apply for financial assistance from the NACE Foundation.

Students (undergraduate or graduate) may present completed research, research in progress, or even planned research. The posters will be judged on content, scientific approach, potential impact on the corrosion community, novelty of approach, and presentation. Student attendance is required at the conference to participate. Please keep in mind that there can only be one student per poster. Students should acknowledge the assistance of their advisor and any fellow students under "acknowledgments."

Each student who wishes to participate must submit a 300-400 word abstract by January 14, 2014. This deadline will NOT be extended.

Thank you in advance for your efforts and interest!
