The first European Coatings Conference "New Concepts for Anti-Corrosive Coatings" will take place in Berlin,Germany on June, 14-15, 2007. The conference will highlight novel, not yet commercially established materials and technologies for high performance anti-corrosive coatings in industrial and marine applications. Four technical sessions will focus on self-healing "intelligent" coatings, anticorrosive thin films, conductive polymers + biopolymers as corrosion protection and accelerated corrosion test methods. The event also will host a pre-conference tutorial on "Corrosion Fundamentals." For more information, visit www.coatings.de/events/ecc32.cfm.
