Symposium C04: Light Alloys 6: In Honor of Hideaki Takahashi
Symposium focus: This symposium will be held in honor of Professor Hideaki Takahashi for his outstanding achievements in the field of corrosion and surface treatments of light metals, particularly anodizing of aluminum and its alloys.
It will provide a forum for discussion of recent results related to corrosion and surface treatments of aluminum, magnesium, titanium and their alloys. Papers are invited on a broad range of fundamental and applied topics including local corrosion processes, environmental fracture, corrosion behavior of advanced light metals and alloys, modeling and prediction of corrosion damage accumulation, surface treatments, including anodizing and conversion coatings, of light metals and alloys for corrosion protection, formation of functional micro-/nano-structured oxide films. New thinking and new insights on oxide growth, environmentally friendly coatings, localized corrosion, and cracking mechanisms and corrosion protection mechanisms are especially encouraged.
Notable Attribute: Invited speakers from around the globe will be announced soon. A joint reception will be held on Wednesday at 1900h to honor Prof. Hideaki Takahashi and Prof. Phillippe Marcus.
