Scope Carolyn M Hansson is a Professor at the University of Waterloo in the department of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering and cross-appointed to the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. In 2021, she will be celebrating her 80th birthday. The technical scope of this symposium are topics that intersect with one or more of her areas of expertise. While her focus has been primarily with concrete and steels, for the purposes of this symposium we will include all materials for greater inclusivity.

The topics of interest include corrosion, erosion, and wear of materials; durability of construction materials; corrosion and electrochemical techniques; techniques for measuring the amount of degradation; rust-resistant reinforcing materials; sustainable materials; cement and concrete; and materials to maintain the integrity of structures.

Carolyn Hansson was the first female student to attend the Royal School of Mines at Imperial College, London, and the first woman to graduate with a PhD in metallurgy from the same. She is Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering, Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, Fellow of the American Concrete Institute, Fellow of the Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (US), and Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (UK). Professor Hansson is the Associate Editor for Cement and Concrete Research and a member of the Executive Committee of the Board of Governors of Acta Materialia.

A key feature of this symposium will be a 45 minute Fireside Chat with Carolyn Hansson. There will be two people asking questions (one of which is a budding metallurgist and corrosion expert). The key aspect to this part will be to hear Carolyn's story. Specifically, what her career path was like, what advice she has for young people (particularly those that are underrepresented) in moving forward in a research and academic career, and what she is excited about in the future research in her field.

After the Fireside chat, short talks that align with poster presentations will occur.

Contributed talks will be 5 minutes (3 slides max) in duration to introduce the author’s poster.
Invited talks will be 10 minutes (6 slides max) to discuss the impact of Dr. Hansson and/or the impact of her research on your career and may include an introduction to your poster (poster presentation along with the invited talks are encouraged for this symposium).

The goal of the above is to avoid the typical symposium style and encourage a deeper level of interaction and networking.

Immediately following the 5 and 10 minute introductory talks, all authors will move to their poster and all in attendance will mingle to discuss in detail the work highlighted in the short talks. The Poster Session will be held in the symposium room immediately following the Fireside Chat and Invited/Contributed Talks. The Poster Session will be an interactive/networking component.
