The Aluminum Anodizers Council (AAC) announced a call for papers for the 32nd Annual Anodizing Conference & Exposition, which will be held on October 10-12, 2023, at a U.S. location soon to be announced. Authors are invited to submit abstracts, papers, or speaker recommendations for consideration and approval by the AAC’s Education Committee. Deadline to submit is January 20, 2023.

Papers may be submitted covering a range of anodizing-related subjects, as the AAC wants to ensure that delegates are offered the most innovative and timely information at the conference. A technical paper is expected to support each presentation, and will be used as part of a comprehensive reference tool for conference registrants to take home.

AAC’s Education Committee will use the papers accepted to outline the content for the upcoming conference. Key topics likely to be of interest to all registrants will be identified, and the committee will schedule a number of specific-interest presentations for focus sessions to be held over the two days of educational programming at the Anodizing Conference & Exposition.
