Weimar ( Germany)
May 19th-21st 2014
Weimar is a city in Germany famous for its cultural heritage. It is located in the federal state of Thuringia, north of the Thuringer Wald, east of Erfurt, and south west of Halle and Leipzig.
Its current population is approximately 65,000. The oldest record of the city dates from the year 899. Weimar was the capital of the Duchy (after 1815 the Grand Duchy) of Saxe-Weimar.
Weimar·s cultural heritage is vast. It is most often recognised as the place where Germany's first democratic constitution was signed after the First World War, giving its name to the Weimar Republic period in German politics, of 1918-1933. However, the city was also the focal point of the German Enlightenment and home of the leading characters of the literary genre of Weimar Classicism, the writers Wieland, Herder, Goethe and Schiller. The musician Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was born here. The city was also the birth place of the Bauhaus movement, founded in 1919 by Walter Gropius, with artists Wassily Kandinsky, Paull Klee, Oskar Schlemmer, and Lyonel Feininger teaching in Weimar·s Bauhaus School. Many places in the city centre have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Founded in 1956, CEOCOR became an international scientific non-profit association in 1981. Most of the European countries are members of CEOCOR which brings together hundreds of specialists from:
- universities and research centres
- water, gas and oil distribution and transportation companies
- waste water companies
- pipe producers and manufacturers of coatings and equipment for cathodic protection systems
The international exchange of experiences and technical know-how ensure the objectivity and the independence of CEOCOR activities.
- provide the basis for scientific and technical guidance in the field of corrosion by studies, recommendations and publications
- contribute to the formulation of European standards
- topics examined by specialists in working groups
- plenary meetings, twice a year, of the sectors and management bodies
- annual congress hosted by one of the member countries
CEOCOR is structured into 2 commissions whose aims are :
Commission 1 deals with the interaction between transported or stored water and metallic or cement based materials. Such interaction may lead to the deterioration of the materials themselves and/or deterioration in the quality of the transported water.
The field of activities of Commission 1 covers the materials used in this environment, their corrosion behavior, corrosion mechanisms and their Corrosion behavior in the field, choice of materials and “non-electrical” protective measures.
Commission 2 deals with external corrosion and cathodic protection against corrosion, mainly for water, oil and gas pipelines and relevant infrastructures; AC and DC stray currents and electrical interferences are in the field of competences of this Commission.
The field of activities of Commission 2 covers, among others, current influenced corrosion, cathodic protection, stray currents, AC-Corrosion.
