The Annual International Waterborne, High-Solids, and Powder Coating Symposium is a multi-faceted conference benefiting industry, academia, and the Polymer Science and Engineering Program at the University of Southern Mississippi. Waterborne is a technical forum dealing with coatings and related fields, focusing on sustainable materials and practices. There will be paper presentations on new and emerging technologies related to materials, processes, production, characterization, application, and markets in the field of surface coatings.
Proceeds from the Symposium are vital to the school. Funds received are used for academic program development. This includes graduate student stipends, junior faculty development, equipment acquisition and maintenance, and scholarships for undergraduate students majoring in Polymer Science, most of whom enter the coatings or related polymer industries upon graduation. These scholarships are critical to the university's efforts to recruit the highest achieving students into our program.
The school also publishes an annual resume book featuring our students who will soon be graduating and looking for work.
We strive to offer the preeminent educational/technical forum in the United States directed to the science and technology of surface coatings. Profits from the Symposium provide revenue to support and advance students at the School of Polymer Science and Engineering at The University of Southern Mississippi. Our Symposium offerings include:
COATINO and The Waterborne Symposium goals are closely aligned – that is, to bring innovation and learning to the coatings industry. Working together as partners enables us to promote innovation in the industry. There is an unmet need for good technical know-how and exchange within the coatings community. The COATINO network addresses this need, and we are proud to partner with them to further educate and enhance the industry.
