The 40th Anniversary Adhesion Society Annual Meeting & Short Course
February 26 - March 1, 2017


Please join us as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Adhesion Society’s founding in St. Petersburg, Florida during our annual meeting to be held February 26-March 1, 2017. The Society started as a small group led by Professor Alan Gent who organized a meeting in Akron, Ohio. Those gathered had a mutual interest in adhesion science and technology. The cross-discipline nature of this field relies on healthy and vibrant discussions of applications and research. This spirit was nurtured by the founders and early leaders and became the Adhesion Society we know today. We will have a special gathering to celebrate our Society and welcome founders and early leaders to share memories and photos from the beginnings of the Society. In addition to the concurrent technical sessions, the meeting will feature three plenary and nine keynote presentations, a lively poster session and exhibition, and the popular Peebles student award symposium and Alan Gent award competition. Outside of the program we have many more events to enjoy. These include the women’s networking reception, planning meetings for the Divisions and overall program where you can bring session topic ideas for the 2018 Annual Meeting, a first annual 5k fun run/walk, and of course the opportunity to meet and network with colleagues.

Two days preceding the start of the meeting, a panel of renowned experts from our Society will teach a short course on “Adhesion Science and Technology” being held February 24-25, 2017.

The Program Committee encourages you to make travel plans to attend and celebrate our 40th Annual Meeting at the Hilton Bayfront in St. Petersburg.
