Abstract : The conference is focused on recent advances in understanding the fundamentals of aqueous corrosion of metals, the formation and breakdown of oxide films, the behavior of coating and protective layers, and corrosion in electronic and communications systems. Individual sessions are Oxide films on metals, Oxide films and breakdown, Localized breakdown of passive films and new microscopic technique, Corrosion in electronic and communications systems, Coatings and corrosion protection, Microscopy and localized breakdown of passive films, Chemical and mechanical effects on oxide film adhesion and fracture. The speakers have been selected on the basis of their unique contributions to, and their knowledge of, the subject area. Several are new speakers and five are from outside the USA. The Session discussion leaders also have a wide background on corrosion and have been selected for their leadership and contributions to corrosion, and their experience with the Gordon Conference format.
