A special year
For many of us in the corrosion community, next year is special since it marks the 40th anniversary of Prof. José Galvele's (March 1937 - July 2011) seminal "Transport Processes and the Mechanism of Pitting of Metals" publication. Our goal is to bring the best of industry and academia under one roof. For the symposium, we invited selected guest speakers from both industry and academia to give special lectures on different topics including: a review of the last 40 years of localized corrosion research, the use of repassivation potentials in localized corrosion modeling, advanced characterization techniques in localized corrosion research, corrosion of highly resistant nickel alloys, microelectrode techniques to study crevice corrosion mechanisms, corrosion of stainless steels in the oil and gas industry, unpublished data from the original development of the critical acidification model, the history of NORSOK M-001, and more.
We will be honored by the presence of prolific scholars including Prof. Gerald S. Frankel, Prof. John R. Scully, Prof. Nick Birbilis, Prof. Narasi Sridhar, Prof. Roy Johnsen, and Prof. David W. Shoesmith. I will update the list of guest lecturers as they confirm their assistance to the symposium.
