The call for papers has launched for the next edition of CompIC ME (Composites in Construction Middle East), an international conference taking place 14-15 February 2018 at the Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach, Dubai, UAE.
The conference is being held amongst the composite flooded Dubai skyline, and will introduce and educate visitors on the current and future use of fibre reinforced composites in construction, detailing innovations and trends in the industry, potential for weight saving on large span structures, economic advantages, whole life cost, architectural freedom and diversity and challenging traditional architectural design.
Abstracts are now being sought from potential speakers on subjects relating to the use of FRP composites in construction to include, but not limited to;
Presentations reach an international audience of professional end-users, architects, asset owners, composite manufacturers, material suppliers, consultancies and designers, the breadth of knowledge of visitors will further add to the event’s unique meeting of minds.
Sue Keighley, Events Manager at NetComposites, commented “We’re delighted to be returning to Dubai for CompIC 2018 and are particularly looking forward to promoting an active exchange of technical and scientific information between delegates, speakers and exhibitors whilst providing invaluable networking opportunities for all throughout the event.”
Abstracts can be submitted via the CompIC ME website at http://www.mecompositesin.construction and the closing date for papers is 29 September 2017.
The attractive long-term prospects for pultruded composites in infrastructure and further key application markets were highlighted at the recent World Pultrusion Conference, organised by the European Pultrusion Technology Association (EPTA).
Preliminary tests have demonstrated that the tensile strength of composite rebar can be increased by 32%, and bending strength by 29%, by introducing only 0.05 wt% of OCSiAl’s TUBALL nanotubes into the resin.
The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) and NetComposites present Global Composites, an international conference and exhibition taking place on June 27th – 28th 2018, at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, US.
