Annual Symposium

The NACE SOSS holds a Student Symposium every year, hosted on a rotational basis between our four universities: University of Toronto, Western University, McMaster University, and Queen's University. This symposium is attended by prominent academics, industry professionals, and students and is dedicated to the state-of-the-art research in the field of corrosion science and engineering. Our aim is to bring together key industry members and current graduate students, allowing students the opportunity to share their research, learn from some of the brightest minds in the corrosion industry, and connect with their peers.


The symposium typically includes keynote presentations, student presentations, and a student poster session, as well as complimentary lunch and coffee breaks provided for each day. We encourage all students to submit abstracts for oral and/or poster presentations as this symposium allows students the opportunity to discuss their research, learn what other local researchers are working on, and network with colleagues and industry personnel. Our call for abstracts will be sent out via email containing details regarding the symposium and instructions on registration and abstract submission. Details regarding the symposium will also be posted to our website.
