The University of Southern Mississippi to Host Waterborne Symposium

The program consists of short courses, technical sessions, the technology showcase exhibit hall and an interactive student poster session.

The School of Polymers and High Performance Materials at The University of Southern Mississippi will host the 43rd Annual International Waterborne, High-solids and Powder Coating Symposium Jan. 31–Feb. 5, 2016, at the Sheraton in New Orleans. The program consists of short courses, technical sessions, the technology showcase exhibit hall and an interactive student poster session. Proceeds from the Symposium 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 the program.
