In 2015, a group of corrosion scientists and engineers from industries and academic & research institutes came together and brought about the idea of organizing the very first Thailand Corrosion Prevention and Control Conference. The conference was aimed to provide a comprehensive platform to gather and share information and knowledge on corrosion prevention technology among delegates with academic and industrial backgrounds. It was a successful mission that brought together over 250 delegates from domestic and international to attend the conference and it received good feedbacks to continue this series of conference. In 2017, we are pleased to announce the occurrence of 2nd International Thailand Corrosion and Prevention Control Conference.
The corrosion is one of the most underrated problems in the world of materials because processes are often very slow and microscopic, but when corrosion- induced failure occurs, it is catastrophic. Therefore, integrity and reliability of structures and components should be the top priority for any applications. The cost of corrosion can be both direct and indirect cost. Previous research conducted in Thailand, the results indicated that corrosion cost accounted for 4.8% of GDP in 2011. Understanding corrosion prevention and mitigation can ensure material integrity and increase profitability.
The goal of this conference is to create a knowledge-experience sharing platform linking among industrial sectors, academic institutes and research agencies in a corrosion technology field. It will help to promote fruitful collaborations between academic institutes and societies in order to sustain our reliable infrastructures and components according to “Smart industry + Smart city + Smart people” concept in Industry 4.0.
