Crosslinking workshop featured at FSCT Midyear.

The FSCT will feature an one-day workshop on "Advanced Topics in Crosslinking," in conjunction with its Midyear Symposium. The Midyear Symposium, designed to provide the international coatings community with a forum for the exchange of in-depth technical information, is scheduled for May 12-14, 2004 at the Hilton Walt Disney World in Lake Buena Vista, FL. The Workshop will be held on May 12.

The Midyear Symposium Task Force, chaired by Jamil Baghdachi, of Eastern Michigan University, has announced the following preliminary schedule of speakers and topics.
