The SAMPE Europe International Conference will take place from April 9th –11th, 2002 at the Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles, Paris and is one of the foremost events in the Technical Conference calendar associated with advanced materials and processes. Whilst polymer composites are a strong theme, the Conference also embraces a wide range of other materials - including ceramics - and new technology in manufacturing and processing. The application of the year selected by JEC and SAMPE is “Aerospace”
The SAMPE Europe International Conference attracts over 300 participants with a choice of full three-day and one-day registrations. The conference comprises more than 70 expert papers grouped into specialist topic areas and delivered in parallel sessions plus ""World leading Tutorials"" - half-day hands-on presentations by recognised experts in their fields. Proposals for participating in an Aerospace Tutorial will be welcome.
The Conference runs simultaneously with the JEC Composites Show. The partnership between SAMPE Europe and JEC, working successfully since 1997, has helped build an unparalleled event in composites and advanced materials at a truly international level.
SAMPE Europe's technical conference expertise brings leading edge materials and process technology alongside JEC, the premier business forum for composites in Europe.
Those interested in presenting a paper are invited to submit an abstract - maximum 200 words. Send by mail, fax or e-mail, not later than October 15th, 2001 to the SAMPE Europe International Conference 2001 Technical Manager: Frazer Barnes, Cytec Fiberite Ltd, Wrexham Industrial Estate, Wrexham, LL13 9UZ, United Kingdom.

Solvay has signed a ten-year agreement for the supply of composites and adhesives to be used across Bell's military and commercial rotorcraft programmes, including the Bell 429, 407, 505, 525, V-22, and UH-1.
SGL Carbon and Fraunhofer IGCV have officially opened the Fibre Placement Centre (FPC) at SGL's site in Meitingen, Germany. Compositence, BA Composites and the Chair for Carbon Composites at the Technical University of Munich have also joined the alliance, and Coriolis Group and Cevotec are planning to come on board as partners.
With the aim developing a broader platform for additive manufacturing (AM) technologies, the University of Exeter, UK, and Victrex, have formed a strategic partnership to introduce next-generation polyaryletherketone (PAEK) polymers and composites while improving the performance of the underlying AM processes.
