Course description:

The Corrosion Summer School (CSS) is an annual event, lasting one week, where a group of most prominent academics, researchers and industrial practitioners in the field of corrosion hold lectures on selected topics. Four to five lecturers will participate each year, selected from a broader pool of experts committed to the summer school. The topics cover fundamental aspects of corrosion as well as applied topics related to a specific industry. The practical focus in 2016 will be the oil and gas industry. Typically, mornings and early afternoons will be reserved for lectures, each day covering a distinct topic, followed by a panel discussion in the afternoon on the same topic, where all the lecturers and course takers participate in an open exchange of ideas and questions. Up to thirty course takers are expected to come mostly from the industry (worldwide) with varying degrees of experience and background in the field of corrosion. In addition, approximately ten additional places would be reserved for graduate students doing research in the field of corrosion.
