European Federation of Corrosion EFC-Event No. 493
High temperature corrosion studies are more relevant than ever to meet today’s challenges in energy production. Fundamental and applied research in this field plays an essential role in the successful shift from the conversion or combustion of fossil fuels to heterogeneous renewable fuels and renewable energies. Associated with the shift to renewable and carbon neutral processes are generally higher temperatures, novel process conditions and media such as salt melt exposures. Additionally, the common process gases and complex environments often change, sometimes with higher amounts of H2 or H2O. Therefore, it is essential to provide alloy designs that deliver stronger high-temperature oxidation and corrosion resistance, while retaining mechanical properties. Another approach to achieving these goals is the combination of load bearing substrates with advanced coatings.

You are cordially invited to contribute to the scientific programme with a lecture or poster.
We look forward to your contributions from research institutions, universities, and industry. New work that is not yet completed, recently started or in the planning stage can also be presented.
You can submit papers for the following topics:
Please prepare an abstract with 1-2 pages (incl. figures, max. size 1 MB, max. 2 pages). The abstract should explicitly mention objectives, new results and conclusions or significance of the work.
The selection of the contributions will be based on the review of the abstracts by the scientific committee.
Accepted abstracts will be published for all conference participants in a book of abstracts (PDF file).
The congress language is English.
Please note: Registration fee cannot be waived for authors.
Please note: Registration fee cannot be waived for authors. Please use the online registration.
If you are unable to present your lecture for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible.
The official language of the conference is English. Simultaneous translation will be not available.
A brief CV questionary enables the appropriate chairperson to introduce all lecturers to the audience. Therefore, lecturers are asked to download the CV form (VERLINKEN) and to return it to the conference office until TERMIN.
The ideal format for the presentation is 16:9. A notebook (MS Office 2010, Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.3) and a wireless presenter will be provided. Please bring your presentation slides as PowerPoint or PDF-File on a USB stick. Nevertheless, we kindly ask you to bring your own laptop computer as a backup.
In case that you need internet /special software for your presentation or if you have videos included into your file, please notify us in advance.
Each lecture is planned for a duration of approx. 20 minutes plus 5 minutes for discussion. Strict timekeeping will be essential for the smooth running of the conference. We suggest to use a minimum font size of 24 pt for your presentation slides.
A poster board will be available for each poster, with the poster number attached.
The posters will be shown throughout the whole conference. Please hang up your poster at the beginning of the meeting.
As a major guideline it is proposed to make the poster intelligible in itself, even in the absence of the author. It is suggested to divide the content of each poster into introduction, results and conclusion, with a summary listing the pertinent results and conclusion.
Standard size for posters is 0.85 x 1.2 m (DIN A0 German Standard) vertically oriented.
To ensure that the text is still legible from a distance of 2-3 m, the main text should be written in font size 25-30 pt, marginal information can be slightly smaller with font size 20-25 pt. The title of a poster must be readable from a distance of approx. 5 m (100-200 pt). Subtitles and headings in the text can be written in 50 pt font.
Topics of interest for discussion at the workshop include understanding and investigation of the underlying corrosion mechanisms through theoretical approaches such as thermodynamic, phase equilibria and diffusion calculations, modeling and data. Experimental validation is of course still essential, such as exposures in air at high temperatures and corrosive gases, salts and slags. This includes the effects of such environments on the growth and degradation of protective oxide scales, the changes in the subsurface scales and the influence on the mechanical properties. Advanced characterization and high-resolution methods such as atom probe or in-situ scanning electron microscopy studies can also prove fruitful for clarification of unknown degradation mechanisms. Finally applied and industrially relevant research relating to gas turbines or chemical plants associated with fuel changes, concentrated solar towers, heat exchangers, fuel cells and electrolyzers are of high interest.
All those interested in the workshop with or without a contribution are cordially invited to attend.
