Nanoscience/ Nanotechnology & Corrosion Symposium
Stevens Institute of Technology and NACE International, Leaders in Corrosion Control Technology, Metro New York Section, will host the Winter 2007 Corrosion Symposium: Nanoscience/Nanotechnology & Corrosion, Nov. 13, 2007 , at Stevens’ Charles V. Schaefer, Jr. School of Engineering & Science, Hoboken , N.J.
Stevens’ Associate Dean of Engineering, Dr. Keith Sheppard, a professor materials engineering, will welcome the attendees and deliver opening remarks at the symposium.
Scientists and researchers in the fields of materials science and corrosion are turning to nanoscience/nanotechnology in a continuous effort to be more clear and precise in explaining natural phenomena at the macromolecular level. This atomic level of interaction of 10 to the minus nine-meter level, or nanometer level, is imperative because it offers a never-before-seen glimpse into the study of interactions on a biological cell level.
The applications of nanoscience and nanotechnology have produced numerous invaluable products, materials, and coatings. This symposium, featuring product developers and speakers from universities in and around the metro New York area, will provide an overview of this cutting-edge technology, and introduce the audience to current and future trends in nanotechnology in general and also how it relates to corrosion.
Registration is limited. To reserve your space, please contact Costas T. Lymberis at +1 917-790-8481, or e-mail Gus.T.Lymberis@nan02.usace.army.mil. Registration is $100 for NACE members who show a valid membership card, and $135 for non-members. Students who register in advance may attend this event free of charge with a valid student ID.
