Invitation to Joint EUROCORR 2017
& 20th ICC & Process Safety Congress 2017
It is our great pleasure to invite you to the joint European Corrosion Congress 2017, 20th International Corrosion Congress & Process Safety Congress 2017 to be held in Prague, Czech Republic on September 3–7, 2017.
The annual conference of the European Federation of Corrosion, EUROCORR, is a flagship event in the field of European corrosion science. Uniquely in 2017, it is co-organised by the International Corrosion Council and Center for Chemical Process Safety becoming thus the largest scientific corrosion event ever held in Europe.
The Congress will cover all aspects of corrosion science and engineering and material protection with world-wide reach. Main topics will include the advances in corrosion prevention, corrosion monitoring, corrosion resistant materials, surface treatment and coatings, inspection and non-destructive testing, electrochemical methods, analytical techniques and microscopy, corrosion inhibitors and others.
With expected attendance of 1500 delegates, the Congress will be a unique networking opportunity for scientists, academics, students and representatives of research institutions and industry in a vibrant professional setting and atmosphere. The scientific programme will consist of plenary lectures by world-renowned corrosion specialists, over 20 pointed keynote lectures and about 800 oral presentations. Fifteen parallel sessions on a variety of topics will offer corrosionists from all over the world the opportunity to meet and present their research.
Excellent design of the Prague Congress Centre, the Congress venue, is destined to host large-scale exhibitions in close contact with the participants. Rich social programme is carefully prepared to enhance further the exchange between congress participants. All accompanying events including welcome party, gala dinner, poster party, lunches and coffee breaks will be provided free of change.
In September 2017, Prague will become the capital of corrosion. The natives of Prague call the city “The Mother of Cities”, “The Golden City”, or “The City of a Hundred Spires”. Visitors consider it to be one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. The city’s historical centre was rightfully added to the UNESCO List of World Cultural Heritage in 1993.
We sincerely hope you will join us in September 2017 in Prague!
Tomáš Prošek, President of the Congress & the Organising Committee
