Beginning on Wednesday. February 24, the Waterborne Symposium will feature three days of technical presentations. A highlight of the program will be the opening session, with the plenary lecture, "The World of Surface Coatings Is Centered Around the Glass Transition Temperature, But Which One?" by James Rawlins. Following Rawlins will be the CIEF presentation of the Sidney Lauren Memorial Award. Opening session presentations also include "POSS Surfaces: How They Impact Rheological and Industrial Polymeric Coatings" by Joe Lichtenhan, founder of Hybrid Plastics, and "iPaint, uPaint, We All Paint" by Steve and Beth McDaniel, Reactive Surfaces Ltd.

Thematic symposium sessions to be offered include Waterborne, Powder Coatings, Pigments, Additives, and general topics. A new highlight of the program is the Automotive Panel Session, to be held on Thursday morning. In addition, a major focus of the Waterborne Symposium is work performed by students.
