The Waterborne Symposium is seeking submissions from academia, government, and industry for presentations focusing on novel research results in all aspects of coatings. The 50th Annual International Waterborne, High-solids, and Powder Coatings Symposium will be held February 12-17, 2023, in New Orleans, La. The five-day event will bring together coatings formulators, chemists, managers, business owners, industry suppliers, students, and educators to network and learn about the latest research and technology in the field of paints and coatings.

Waterborne offers educational and technical presentations to create a profound understanding of coatings theory, science, manufacturing, and marketing to highlight the improvement of coatings performance and functionality beyond traditional expectations. Speakers will be presenting February 15-17.

The Waterborne Symposium Technical Committee is responsible for coordinating all speakers, as well as the agenda. Abstract submissions are due October 1, 2022. The technical committee will send abstract acceptance letters by November 1, 2022.

The symposium requires a written paper, a presentation (20-30 min), a speaker biography, and a picture. All presentations must be original (first time presented), non-commercial, and should represent recent advancements in coatings science or related disciplines.
