AMPP Annual Conference + Expo topic request

To have your presentation topic considered for AMPP Annual Conference + Expo in Denver (March 19-23, 2023), the request must be received by Tuesday, May 31, 2022. AMPP is seeking presentation topics on the following formats:

Informational Topics

These are opportunities to discuss information that is relevant to the industry, but will not require a technical paper. These presentations may take place in Forums, Theatre (exhibit hall), Roundtables, Workshops or Track Rooms. The informational topic should contain the number of presentations you expect to be delivered and the number of people you want to be able to seat in the audience. From there, staff will determine the best location for your presentation.

Peer reviewed Technical Topics

Symposia is a way to hear the latest industry knowledge and methods before it's available in popular literature. This traditional format will include a formal call for abstracts. When submitting an abstract, authors must explain how this work will help advance and provide innovative technologies to the coatings and corrosion industries and/or will serve to introduce new information to the existing body of literature. A technical paper is required and will be peer reviewed for the conference proceedings.


Advertorial presentations are a way to promote your companies’ products or services. Depending on the topic and relevance to industry, a fee may be required.

Review Process

Staff will collect all requests for the Conference & Events Program Committee (CEPC). The CEPC will review requests in their entirety and determine the topics schedule for 2023. Handwritten forms are not accepted. Symposia chairs, should be notified before submitting this form.
