The 2010 Awards of Excellence recognized two authors who presented papers at the 2009 Anodizing Conference in Fort Worth, Texas. The Donald I. Johnson Award of Excellence for best presentation at the 2009 conference was awarded to H. Hau Wang, Ph.D. from Argonne National Laboratory for his paper, "New Uses for Anodized Aluminum Oxide." The Robert L. Kersman Award of Excellence for best paper was awarded to Dale Barkey, Ph.D., professor of Engineering at the University of New Hampshire for his paper, "Electrochemical Kinetics, Transport & Pattern Formation in Anodizing."
The Council also announced plans to invite poster sessions featuring the work of students from a number of universities at the 2011 Anodizing Conference, scheduled Oct. 4 - 6, 2011 at The Buttes Resort in Tempe, Arizona.
“We see an opportunity to foster mutually beneficial relationships between industry and academia through the Council,” said Greg Rajsky, AAC president. “Therefore, we are embarking on an initiative to further develop relationships with academic institutions around the world.”
