Fifth Annual Student Poster Session at the
The Aluminum Anodizers Council (AAC) invites students engaged in electrochemistry, metallurgy, chemistry, materials science, metal forming, and related engineering disciplines to present their work at a poster session during the Annual Anodizing Conference and Exposition in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This three-day comprehensive event offers education, information and networking geared specifically to the anodizing community. AAC is a trade association that supports the science, technology, and business of light metal surface finishing, principally aluminum anodizing.
The AAC Student Poster Session provides a forum where students may present their research in anodizing, surface science, surface treatment, electrochemical finishing, metal forming, and other relevant technologies to an interested audience of industry professionals. The goal is to present academic and industrial-related research and development in the field of metal surface science and technology. In an effort to encourage more student participation in AAC events, Apple, Inc. has contributed funding once again this year to help with travel costs.
Suggested poster topics include but are not limited to:
