The programme for the recently announced Composites Europe 2005 conference is developing extremely well for this unique event with papers already received from key players in industry and academia. Due to the tight timescales originally imposed, the deadline for abstract submission has been extended to 27th May 2005.
The conference aims to create new bridges between research and industry and facilitate the exploitation of high-quality European research. It breaks new ground by presenting the best quality research and technical innovations alongside detailed case studies and guidance on how to effectively transfer these new technologies into commercial applications. The audience will learn about the experiences of start-up companies, technology licensees and those providing funds, alongside the latest innovations and research.
The event is specifically designed to appeal to an audience from all application sectors, offering an ideal opportunity to stimulate and facilitate technology transfer between industries.
The 2-day event is structured to mirror the development cycle, with 4 sequential sessions covering innovative research, applied development, industrial application and commercial exploitation. High-quality papers, for presentation orally or as posters, are invited for each of the four main themes of the conference, and we would particularly welcome those covering applications of technology.
Keynote presentations by major industry figures will set the scene for each of the sessions, and a comprehensive exhibition will run alongside the two-day event.
Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of about 500 words via e-mail in word or PDF to the conference organiser, Dr Sue Halliwell, before 27 May 2005.
