22nd International Conference on
Composite Materials (ICCM-22)

11-19 August 2019, Melbourne, Australia

The 22nd International Conference on Composites Materials (ICCM22) will be held in Melbourne, Australia, August 11-16, 2019.

ICCM is the premier international conference in the field of composite materials, and covers polymer matrix composites, metal matrix composites, ceramic matrix composites, natural fibre composites, fibre metal laminates, fibres and resins and all the other classes of composites. ICCM22 provides a forum for the presentation, exchange and discussion of the latest research into composite materials and their applications.

The conference theme for the ICCM22 is “Advanced Composites: Research to Impact”, with the objective of exploring the latest research into composite materials and how they will be used in the future covering multiple applications including aerospace, construction, wind energy, automotive, electronics and so on.

4th International Symposium on Automated Composites Manufacturing

April 25-26, 2019, Montreal, Canada

The first three International Symposia on Automated Composites Manufacturing were held in Montreal in April 2013, 2015 and 2017. These events were very successful for the composite manufacturing community with participation from many hundreds people from many countries. The symposia addressed hot topics in the area of advanced composites manufacturing using automated technologies. They brought together both academia and industrial practitioners and aimed to bridge the gap between academic research and industrial applications.

At the request of many, and following the trend toward increased use of automated manufacturing of composite structures, the 4th International Symposium on Automated Composites Manufacturing (ACM4) is being organized to be held in Montreal April 25-26, 2019.
