From its inception, The Waterborne Symposium has been organized and executed by faculty, staff, and students of the School of Polymers and High Performance Materials (formerly the Department of Polymer Science) at The University of Southern Mississippi. Proceeds from the Symposium are very important to USM and the School of Polymers and High Performance Materials. Funds received are used for various elements of academic program development, including graduate student stipends, junior faculty development, equipment acquisition and maintenance, and especially, scholarships for undergraduate students majoring in Polymer Science and Polymer Science & Engineering, most of whom enter the coatings or related polymer industries upon graduation. These scholarships are critical to the university’s efforts to recruit the highest achieving students into our program.


The program is comprised of the following components:

  • Short Courses (January 31–February 2): Short and intense training sessions.
  • Symposium: Technical Sessions (February 3–February 5): Stay up-to-date on cutting edge research from leading experts.
  • Technology Showcase Exhibit Hall (February 2–February 4): Promote your company and your new technology in a small and intimate setting.
  • Interactive Student Poster Session (February 4): Students from the School of Polymers and High Performance Materials compete in a poster competition.
  •  Expert Panel Session
