21st International Conference on
Composite Materials (ICCM-21)

20-25 August 2017, Xi'an, China

The 21st International Conference on Composites Materials (ICCM-21) will be held in Xi'an, China, August 20-25, 2017. ICCM, the most premier conference in the field of composite materials, aims at encouraging the exchange of the researches and insights from scientists and scholars, and promoting research, development and use of composite material and structures. The conference theme for the ICCM-21 is "Advanced Composites: Innovation and Development", which tries to explore the very important role of innovation in the development of composite materials, and examine if the composite materials are making a difference in boosting the global economy. The conference includes plenary talks, keynote lectures, oral and poster, and various social programs for over 2,000 participants from around the world.

3rd International Symposium on
Automated Composites Manufacturing

April 20, 21, 2017, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

The first International Symposium on Automated Composites Manufacturing (ACM1) was held in Montreal in April 2013. The event was a great success for the composite manufacturing community with over 36 oral presentations and participants from 11 countries. The symposium addressed hot topics in the area of advanced composites manufacturing using automated technologies. It brought together both academia and industrial practitioners and aimed to bridge the gap between academic research and industrial applications. Leading from this success, the second International Symposium on Automated Composites Manufacturing (ACM2) was held in Montreal in April 2015. With 47 presentations and 150 participants from 13 countries this event again was a great success. 

At the request of many, and following the trend toward increased use of automated manufacturing of composite structures, the Third Symposium on Automated Composites Manufacturing (ACM3) is being organized to be held in Montreal April 20, 21, 2017.
