According to the Polish Corrosion Society objectives, the conference is not only a place to present modern applications of corrosion protection but also an occasion to discuss specific corrosion problems, as well as exchange of experience during the round table discussions. This year, the biggest topic was fireprof protection and acoustic screens.

Next year’s theme was also discussed. Members proposed to increase the number of papers directly concerning anticorrosion works and information about coating failures. It was also proposed to present case studies and to host a meeting of Contractors.
