The 19th International Congress on Marine Corrosion and Fouling
2018-06-24 to 2018-06-29
Melbourne, Florida
Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to welcome you, on behalf of the COIPM, to the 19th International Congress on Marine Corrosion and Fouling (ICMCF), which will be held between June 24 – 29, 2018, at the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT), in Melbourne, Florida, USA.
Founded at the dawn of the Space Race in 1958, Florida Tech is the only independent, technological university in the Southeast. The university has been named a Barron’s Guide “Best Buy” in College Education, and is one of just nine schools in Florida lauded by the Fiske Guide to Colleges. In 2016, Times Higher Education ranked Florida Tech one of the top 20 small universities in the world and named it one of the top universities in the United States. Florida Tech offers undergraduate, master’s and doctoral programs in fields as variable as science, engineering, aeronautics, business, humanities, mathematics, cybersecurity, psychology, communication and education.
Florida Institute of Technology’s mission is to provide high-quality education to a culturally diverse student body in order to prepare students for entering the global workforce, seeking higher-education opportunities, and serving within their communities. The university also seeks to expand knowledge through basic and applied research and to serve the diverse economic, cultural, and societal needs of our local, state, national and international constituencies.
The ICMCF originated in Juan-Les-Pins, France, with its first conference being held at Cannes in 1964. Subsequently, conferences have been held across the globe, including the US, Spain, Italy, the UK, Australia, Brazil, Japan, and Singapore. The ICMCF has a rich history of hosting attendees and speakers from both academia and industry, thus providing an environment that not only eases interaction and collaboration, but instigates the establishment of relationships.
This coming conference will keep with past ICMCF traditions by providing an interdisciplinary program that will highlight research efforts in understanding and combating biofouling and corrosion of materials and structures immersed in the marine environment. It is ICMCF’s goal to bring experts from around the world together to discuss the latest basic and applied research advances in biology, microbiology, chemistry, physical chemistry, coatings, and materials to help face the challenges of biofouling and corrosion.
We sincerely hope you all take this opportunity to join us in our discussion and collaboration to combat current and future challenges of marine corrosion and fouling.

Challenger Conference 2018
2018-09-10 to 2018-09-13
Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

Challenger Conference 2018 promises to provide a fantastic showcase of marine science, covering all areas of ocean research. The official conference programme will commence with an ice-breaker event on the evening of the 10th September at our newly refurbished Boiler House on our main city campus. This is then followed by a three-day lecture and poster programme and includes a conference dinner at 'The Boiler Shop' which dates back to the 1829 and was a focal part of the Stephenson Co locomotive works which built Stephenson's Rocket.

Alongside the formal conference programme there are also a range special interest groups and community meetings taking place during and after the conference, details of which will be available leading up to the conference.

Topic Areas

1. Oceans and climate: tantalising new future predictions.
2. From physics to fish: ecosystem interactions and physical controls.
3. The power of microbes: microbial biogeochemistry, processes, mixotrophy etc.
4. Fuel for ocean life: nutrient sources, limitation, controls, importance / geochemistry.
5. Technology and instrumentation: Innovation in autonomy and remote data acquisition.
6. The rising tide of human impact: Plastics, pollution, large to nano-scale impacts.
7. Sequencing the seas: The potential and limitations of eDNA for marine science.
8. The marine extremes: From polar, chemosynthetic, and deep environments.
9. On the sea shelf: physics, biogeochemistry and biology on the continental margins.
