The two-day Aluminum Anodizing Conference incorporates general sessions, focus sessions in three tracks: Technical, Environmental, and Scientific, while the Anodizing Expo featuring exhibits from industry suppliers, as well as networking events. Optional add-on components to the conference include tours to local manufacturing plants, and the Anodizing Quality Workshop—a new second-level course in the AAC School for Anodizers.

“The 2010 Anodizing Conference program promises a robust variety of topics, ranging from the latest research using the aluminum anodic oxide, or AAO, to new products and environmental insight for the anodizer to sustainable business ideas and lean practices,” said Jude Runge, Ph.D., AAC Education Committee Chair  and president of CompCote Inc. in Lombard, Ill. “What’s new is our Academic Outreach Program; we have actively sought out and continue to search for universities that are working with light metals research and development, surface science, and the technology of anodizing."
