Welcome to CASP 2019

Dear colleagues,


It is our great pleasure to invite you to the Corrosion and Surface Protection for Steel 2019 International Symposium and Exhibition to be held in Istanbul, Türkiye on 22-24 May 2019.


According to the estimated global cost of corrosion is about US$ 2.5 trillion in accordance with the “International Measures of Prevention, Application and Economics of Corrosion Technology (IMPACT)” study released by NACE in 2016. This cost is equivalent to roughly 3.4 percent of the global Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The biggest portion of which is stemmed from the corrosion of steel. Therefore, TUCSA has decided to organize this biannual symposium in coordination with ECCS in Istanbul every odd year.


The Symposium will cover all aspects of corrosion science and engineering as well as steel and other relevant material protection with worldwide 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 the expected attendance, the Symposium will be a very effective networking opportunity for scientists, academics, students and representatives of research institutions and industry in an existing professional setting and atmosphere. The scientific programme will consist of plenary lectures by world-renowned corrosion and surface protection specialists. Plenary and parallel sessions on a variety of topics will offer specialists on corrosion and surface protection from all over the world the opportunity to meet and present their research.


All accompanying events including a welcome party, poster party, lunches and coffee breaks will be provided free of charge.


In May 2019, Istanbul will become the capital of corrosion, where will be very attractive for visitors as a Mediterranean coastal city, a peaceful and sunny tourism center.


We sincerely hope you will jöin us on 22-24 May 2019 in Istanbul.
