Virtual Student Poster Session at the Annual Anodizing Conference 


October 15, 2020


The Aluminum Anodizers Council (188比分直播) invites students engaged in electrochemistry, metallurgy, chemistry, materials science, metal forming, and related engineering disciplines to present their work at a virtual poster session during the Annual Anodizing Conference.  188比分直播 is a trade association that supports the science, technology, and business of light metal surface finishing, principally aluminum anodizing.


The 188比分直播 Virtual 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. 

Suggested poster topics include but are not limited to:

  • Surface modification of aluminum and aluminum alloys by way of anodic oxidation
  • Applications of the anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) as a stand-alone finish or as a template for nanostructures
  • Oxide growth processes and studies on other light metals, including magnesium and titanium
  • Dye Chemistry, formulation, color and application processes
  • Chemistry of aluminum oxides and hydroxides surfaces
  • Other light metal surface modification processes and techniques
  • Novel analyses and test methods for light metals surfaces 
  • New ways to implement existing methods and applications. 

Conference Poster Session

The 188比分直播 Virtual Student Poster Session is scheduled for Thursday, October 2020.  Students will be expected to present live to explain their research.  An exact schedule of Virtual Poster Session hours will be provided to accepted students prior to the Conference.

The 188比分直播 Academic Committee or their designees will judge the posters, and a $500 prize will be awarded to each of the three best poster presentations. Complete poster format guidelines and information are available at the Anodizing Conference website, www.188比分直播
