Eleventh International Conference on Composite Science & Technology

The objective of ICCST/11 is to bring together composites scientists, engineers and technologists to exchange ideas, to discuss the latest developments in composites and to present their work to the international composites community. The conference will be held April 4-6, 2017 at the American University of Sharjah, in Sharjah, UAE. Sharjah was selected as the 2014 Capital of Islamic Culture and is located 20 minutes from Dubai.

Prospective authors are invited to submit abstracts on topics related to, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • mechanics of composites
  • ceramic composites
  • infrastructural use of composites
  • metal-matrix composites
  • nondestructive evaluation and characterisation of composites
  • composite manufacturing
  • polymers and polymer composites
  • fracture and fatigue of composites
  • smart materials and structures
  • numerical and mathematical modeling of composites
  • applications of composites in civil engineering
  • nano-composites

A number of leading researchers in the field of composite materials will be invited to deliver keynote lectures. The conference's official language is English.

Prospective authors should submit a two-page extended abstract online (details to be given soon). The extended abstract should clearly state the objectives, results and conclusions of the work undertaken and emphasise the novel aspects of the work. Contact information and affiliation of the corresponding author must be included.

Papers presented at the conference will be published in the conference proceedings. A six-page camera-ready manuscript of accepted papers should be submitted by the deadline mentioned below. Selected papers will be published in a special issue of Applied Composite Materials as well as other journals.
