FSCT invites student papers and posters for ICE 2008 programs.

Opportunities for student participation will be plentiful at ICE 2008. To be held October 15-17, at Lakeside Center, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL, ICE 2008 will feature a new program designed to assist students interested in pursuing careers in the coatings industry. In addition, the FSCT is seeking student-authored papers and posters to be part of ICE 2008 programming.

Hendry Award Paper Competition

The award, sponsored by the Southern Society for Coatings Technology, commemorates the industry contributions of the late Alfred L. Hendry, president of A.L. Hendry Co. and Past President of the Southern Society.

Author(s) will receive a cash award of $1,000 and expenses covering one student's attendance at FutureCoat!, to be held in conjunction with ICE. The lab of the sponsoring school will receive a grant of $500. All student author(s) will have the opportunity to present their paper at FutureCoat!.

Papers submitted for the 2008 competition must include:

(1) A letter of intent along with the title of the proposed paper and a maximum 250-word abstract.

(2) Results of original research on a subject related to coatings technology, or present a significantly insightful, comprehensive review of a field of coatings technology.

Research projects or senior thesis as part of an undergraduate or Masters Degree only will be accepted. Papers from students currently in a Ph.D. track will not be accepted.

Those interested are requested to provide an abstract by February 22, 2008, along with contact information to: Jennifer Majchrzak, Educational Events Coordinator, at FSCT. Completed papers will be due June 20, 2008.

ICE 2008 Posters

The 2008 ICE Poster Sessions Competition is designed to provide a forum for students involved in coatings research by serving as a noncommercial arena for new ideas and techniques, and showcase preliminary results and work that is significant but not fully completed.

Awards for the best student poster displayed will be: First--$500; Second--$300; and Third--$200.

Students wishing to display their poster(s) at ICE should send a proposed title and maximum 200-word abstract describing the poster.

Each entry will be provided a display board to highlight the research project and must be staffed during the scheduled poster session times during ICE.

Displays will be judged on scientific content, originality, and quality of display.

To be listed in the final ICE brochure, submit entries by June 27, 2008. The final entry deadline is August 1, 2008.
