Norman Hackerman Memorial Symposium - The Corroding of America's Infrastructure

Norman Hackerman was a distinguished electrochemist with strong research interests in corrosion. He also was a civic scientist who played an important role in science policy as chair of the National Science Board, chair of the Robert A. Welch Foundation's Scientific Advisory Board, and chair of the Advisory Committee on Research Programs of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The symposium seeks to unite these aspects of Hackerman's career through an exploration of the issues involved in the maintenance of public infrastructure with an emphasis on the degradation caused by the ravages of corrosion while celebrating his leadership at Rice University.
