Welcome to the first international conference dedicated to corrosion risk management, presented by industry and academia leaders from around the world. The conference will cover a broad number of topics relevant to, among others, the energy, oil and gas, automotive, aerospace, maritime, defense, and transportation sectors.
Why a conference focused on Corrosion Risk Management?
Risk management has become an important requirement in many industries and an indispensable tool for today's corrosion and materials engineers. Risk management of corrodible systems presents many challenges given the complexity of the material degradation processes and the long time-frames over which corrosion may affect a given system.
Corrosion and materials engineers are responsible for numerous corrosion management activities such as: i) the development of life prediction models and standards for materials selection and welding procedures, iii) the design of modern infrastructure, and iv) the coordination and execution of corrosion monitoring and mitigation programs. These corrosion management activities should be placed in the context of system risk management.
Which Aspects of Corrosion Risk Management Will be Covered?
A variety of risk management approaches are used in different industries ranging from very qualitative to fully quantitative, physics-based models. This conference will assist organizations to better incorporate both qualitative and quantitative strategies into advanced corrosion risk management practices within their overall management plan by bringing together the state-of-the-art in theoretical and engineering fundamentals of corrosion risk management.
The conference will be of interest to corrosion, materials, pipeline, civil, and mechanical engineers as well as consultants, researchers, and scientists responsible for managing corrosion and degradation challenges.
The conference will also be of interest to all management levels within organizations willing to advance their current risk management strategy. The conference will attract a global audience and create the first hub for unifying corrosion risk management approaches and fundamental theoretical principles.
The meeting promises to be a highly stimulating forum that will bring new insights into all aspects of corrosion risk management. Each track will bring worldwide leaders to present a series of keynote lectures. The program will cover the following topics:
The conference intends to publish proceedings that will be available in electronic form.
