AAC Issues Call for Papers, Student Posters

The Aluminum Anodizers Council has issued a Call for Papers for the Twentieth Annual International Anodizing Conference.

The Aluminum Anodizers Council (AAC) has issued the Call for Papers for the Twentieth Annual International Anodizing Conference, scheduled to take place Oct. 4 - 6, 2011 at The Buttes Tempe Marriott Resort in Tempe, AZ.


The Council is seeking manuscripts and presentations covering a range of anodizing-related subjects to ensure that delegates are offered the most innovative, timely, and relevant content in the anodizing industry today. 


Those interested in presenting a paper at the conference should submit an Abstract by following the link to the Call for Papers on the Conference website at AACconf.org, or contact AAC at mail@anodizing.org. Abstracts will be reviewed and evaluated by the Council's Education Committee during the AAC Winter Meetings in January as they organize the program for the 2011 Anodizing Conference. However, the Council will continue to consider abstracts submitted after January 2011.


Call for Student Posters Issued

New for next year’s Anodizing Conference, AAC plans to include poster presentations featuring the work of students. A poster is a graphically based approach to presenting research containing only the crucial points of the work. “We are inviting students engaged in electrochemistry, metallurgy, chemistry, materials science, and related engineering disciplines to present their work at a poster session at the 2011 Anodizing Conference,” says Greg Rajsky, AAC president. The AAC Poster Session provides a forum where students may present their research in surface science, surface treatment, electrochemical finishing and other relevant technologies to an interested audience of industry professionals. The AAC Student Poster Session is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2011.


Abstracts for poster presentations should not exceed 200 words and should be submitted by Feb. 11, 2011 to mail@anodizing.org. Students will be notified by Feb. 25, 2011 as to whether their abstracts are accepted. Students are encouraged to visit the Call for Posters page of the Anodizing Conference website for more information. The Call for Posters flyer containing submission details is available to download from the Conference website at AACconf.org.
