Student Posters to Highlight CoatingsTech Conference

A popular feature of the 2019 CoatingsTech Conference will be the Student Posters Competition. Intended to spotlight coatings research being performed in the academic (i.e., non-commercial) arena, the competition provides a forum for students to advance new ideas and techniques, and to interact with the other participants of the conference.

Posters will be judged on scientific content, originality, and quality of display. Each student will be provided with a display board to highlight their project, and the posters must be staffed during the scheduled Poster Session, which will take place from 6:00–7:30 pm on Monday, April 8. Winners of the poster competition will be announced at the first technical session of the program on Tuesday morning.

Titles and presenters of the posters include:
