the Conference

The highly regarded technical program at the 2011 Department of Defense Corrosion Conference will present topics impacting our military’s readiness, safety, logistics, and cost for both equipment and infrastructure. To review preliminary session topics, click here.

This year's conference features five parallel generic tracks:

  1. Corrosion Policy
  2. Corrosion Science
  3. Corrosion Technology
  4. Corrosion Resistant Material
  5. Facilities Corrosion Management

Under each generic track are several specialty sessions where the most popular will require several contiguous morning and afternoon sub-sessions to provide enough time for all approved briefings. The large number of approved briefings requires that seven concurrent technical sessions/sub-sessions be programmed to run simultaneously. This diverse array of topics will offer you the flexibility to attend those sessions having briefing topics of the most interest to you.
