Featuring a new name, the 34th Annual International Waterborne Symposium to be held February 14-16 in New Orleans.

The School of Polymers and High Performance Materials at The University of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg, MS, and the Southern Society for Coatings Technology will host The Water-borne Symposium (formerly called the International Waterborne, High-Solids, and Powder Coatings Symposium) on February 14-16, 2006, at the Marriott Hotel in New Orleans, LA. This is the 34th year for the Symposium. This year's theme is "Advances in Intelligent Coating Design."

Prior to the start of the Symposium, two Short Courses--"Modern Coatings-Current and Emerging Technologies" and "Reformulating Waterborne Coatings" -- will be held February 12-13, 2007.
