ELECTROCOR 2007 is the second international conference in this successful series, which aims to present and discuss the state of the art on the computer simulation of corrosion, electrochemical processes and the electric and electromagnetic fields associated with them.

Modern Industry applies a wide range of electrochemical processes to protect against corrosion, provide surface treatments and to manufacture products. This
conference is focused on the computer modelling of these industrial processes and techniques. Engineering uses electrochemical processes to protect structures and systems against corrosion. Cathodic protection is widely used in the Maritime, Defence, Oil & Gas and Utility industries to control corrosion. The electrical and magnetic fields associated with the electrochemical processes is also of significant interest to engineers responsible for the performance of maritime systems, the operators of rail systems and owners of electrical
transmission systems. For instance, problems such as system interactions between rail and commuter electric light-rail, are of concern to operators.

Electrochemical systems are widely used to deposit coatings on the surface of products and structures. The accurate prediction of the performance of the coating and the optimisation of the process is of major importance to manufacturing engineers. Electrochemical techniques are also used to form or fabricate a wide variety of different products.

The common theme of this conference is the development of computational models and their application in practice. Comparison of simulation with experimental measurements is actively encouraged as well as the presentation of case studies.
