Corrosion - Aqueous
Corrosion is one of the oldest conferences within the Gordon Research Conferences, having been initiated in 1941 by Professor Gordon himself as a part of the Gibson Island conferences, which later became GRC (H.H. Uhlig, Recollections of Early Gordon Research Conferences on Corrosion, Corrosion, 37 (6), 309-312, 1981). Over the ensuing years the Corrosion conferences have focused on corrosion mechanisms, various analytical techniques, and modeling. Periodically, the conferences have focused on industry-university collaborations. Although student posters and presentations have long been a fixture in the corrosion conferences, a separate Gordon Research Seminar, specifically involving presentations from students and new researchers to the field was started in 2008 and continues in the present conference.
Additional information on the history of the Corrosion GRC is available in "Recollections of Early Gordon Research Conferences on Corrosion
", by Herbert Uhlig. This article was originally published in the June 1981 issue of the CORROSION Journal
, and has been reproduced on the GRC web site with the permission of NACE International.
: In 1992, the original "Corrosion" Gordon Research Conference split into two bi-annual conferences - "Corrosion - Aqueous
" (even years) and "Corrosion - Dry
" (odd years).
What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.
This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "Corrosion - Aqueous" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS)
series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History
section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here
.What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
