About Us

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to welcome you, on behalf of the COIPM, to the 19th International Congress on Marine Corrosion and Fouling (ICMCF), which will be held between June 24 – 29, 2018, at the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT), in Melbourne, Florida, USA.

The ICMCF originated in Juan-Les-Pins, France, with its first conference being held at Cannes in 1964. Subsequently, conferences have been held across the globe, including the US, Spain, Italy, the UK, Australia, Brazil, Japan, and Singapore. The ICMCF has a rich history of hosting attendees and speakers from both academia and industry, thus providing an environment that not only eases interaction and collaboration, but instigates the establishment of relationships.

This coming conference will keep with past ICMCF traditions by providing an interdisciplinary program that will highlight research efforts in understanding and combating biofouling and corrosion of materials and structures immersed in the marine environment. It is ICMCF’s goal to bring experts from around the world together to discuss the latest basic and applied research advances in biology, microbiology, chemistry, physical chemistry, coatings, and materials to help face the challenges of biofouling and corrosion.

For more information, please refer to the 19th ICMCF conference's official website.
