Adhesion Society


Welcome to the Adhesion Society! We are a professional society formed in 1978 with the goal of advancing the science and technology of adhesion. Our primary activity is our annual scientific meeting, which has taken place every year since 1978. The 2016 Annual Meeting will be held in San Antonio, TX from February 21-24, 2016. For up-to-date information concerning the Adhesion Society and the broader adhesion science community, please go to the “Resources” web page where you can also subscribe to RSS feeds or sign up to receive the latest Society news.
