This forum will examine significant issues facing marine coatings personnel such as regulatory changes and new IMO specifications.

The marine track will begin on Sunday, March 10, 2007, with a Marine Vessel Technical Exchange that includes informal presentations and discussion related to coatings used to control corrosion on ships.

A 2-day Marine Corrosion and Transport Symposium will be held Monday and Tuesday, March 11-12, 2007, and will include technical papers on such topics as IMO’s Performance Standards for Protective Coatings (PSPC), comparison of life cycle costs of marine materials, and in-water cleaning to improve performance of anti-fouling coatings.
