BECOME A MEMBER AT NASF.ORG NASF's Education Foundation Now Accepting Scholarship Applications NASF is committed to training students interested in pursuing careers in the surface engineering and technology feld. The association's education and training arm—the AESF Foundation—is now accepting applications for its 2013 university scholarship program. The scholarship award is $1,500, and is awarded to either a graduate student or undergraduate (enrolled as a junior or senior in the 2013–2014 academic year) in chemical engineering, material science or engineering, mechanical engineering, metallurgical engineering, environmental engineering or chemistry. Candidates must demonstrate academic achievement and involvement in extracurricular activities. Applications must be received by Nov. 22, 2013. The winner of this year's award will be notifed by Dec. 15, 2013. For more information or to download an application, click on the Education tab at more information. Upcoming NASF Events West Coast Bright Design Challenge Teaming with the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif., NASF's West Coast chapters will invite design students to think beyond traditional design theory and bring out their very best creative spirit. The annual West Coast competition of NASF's Bright Design Challenge aims to develop "nextgeneration" creative and engineering solutions that incorporate various types of coatings. For more information, visit 2014 Management Conference Feb. 23 - 27, 2014 In February, the NASF will conduct its annual Management Conference at the Sheraton Maui on Kaanapali Beach and ofer valuable insight on both operational and regulatory issues afecting the future of surface fnishing. To register, visit the events page at AESF Research Program. Last year, the research board awarded a three-year grant to fund work at Northeastern University. The project, titled "Electrodeposition of Ni-Fe-Mo-W Alloys," is under the direction of Professor Elizabeth J. Podhala-Murphy, who has been active in electrodeposition for more than 20 years and currently leads eforts in the understanding of reaction mechanisms and kinetic-transport behavior governing electrodeposition. This report details the work accomplished in the second quarter of 2013 (April-June). In this quarter, the rotating Hull cell study considered the efect of adding iron (Fe) to the nickel-molybdenumtungsten (NiMoW) bath. A pulsed deposition study considered the efects of pulsed deposition on deposit morphology. The Hull cell study continued examination of the efect of thiourea on the deposition of NiW. The full paper can be accessed and printed from The report on the July-September 2013 quarter will be published in the NASF Report in a future issue of PF. 2014 Washington Forum April 8 - 10, 2014 The NASF Washington Forum is an opportunity for the surface fnishing community to hold key policy discussions with national and international experts, as well as meet with Congress, senior agency ofcials and manufacturing allies. Updates and registration information will be at NASF SUR/FIN 2014 June 9 - 11, 2014 NASF will hold the 2014 Sur/Fin Manufacturing and Technology Tradeshow & Conference at the new Cleveland Convention Center in Cleveland, Ohio. NASF's Sur/Fin is the industry's leading professional conference exclusive to the surface fnishing industry. The 2014 event will mark Sur/Fin's 96th year.
