The NACE International Research Committee is again sponsoring its annual Student Poster Session during CORROSION 2011 Conference & Expo, March 14 -17, 2011, in Houston, Texas, USA.

  • Students (undergraduate, graduate, or post doctorate) can present completed research, research in progress, or even planned research.
