Chairman's Welcome
Welcome to CORCON 2015

Dear Corrosion Community,

NACE International Gateway India Section's premiere event CORCON will be held in Chennai from 19th to 21th November 2015. This year we plan to have a wider participation from across industry, research and academia, as well as participation from overseas.

We are pleased to inform you that the U.S. Department of Commercial Services has granted Trade Fair Certification to CORCON 2015.This program is a cooperative arrangement between private trade show organisers and the U.S. government to increase U.S. exports and expand U.S. participation in overseas trade shows.This certification signals official U.S. Government support to CORCON to potential exhibitors and visitors, to the Indian government and business community leaders, and to foreign buyers/attendees – thus encouraging their support and participation. The program also standardises, leverages, coordinates, and initiates US Department of Commerce support domestically and worldwide; unifies U.S. participation, and institutionalises NIGIS and US Commercial Services responsibilities.

This year also we have the support of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI). A non-government, not-for-profit organisation, FICCI is the voice of India's business and industry. As of January 2015, NACE International Gateway India Section is also a member of FICCI.

With the cost of corrosion worldwide being over US$ one trillion today, we at NACE International believe that at least a third of this cost can be saved by using available practices and technologies in our routine working environments. Further costs can be reduced by incorporating corrosion prevention technologies and practices in the design stage of the asset. Towards achieving this end, it is imperative to promote interactions between people and organisations working in the field of corrosion. CORCON 2015 will provide an ideal platform for these interactions and also spread the awareness of the scourge of corrosion.

The CORCON organising committee is planning a mega event and we are confident that the delegates will find participating in CORCON 2015 much more rewarding.

Your involvement at this premier event is essential for the success of CORCON 2015. Please support us to accomplish our NACE International mission “Protecting people, assets and the environment from the effects of corrosion”.

Be part of CORCON 2015 and let us save our people, assets and the environment from corrosion for the society's good. We look forward to your participation at CORCON 2015.

Best wishes,




Dr. U. Kamachi Mudali
Chairman, CORCON 2015
