Under the motto ’Competitive through Composites’, the AVK Industrievereinigung Verstärkte Kunststoffe e.V. [Federation of Reinforced Plastics] will be hosting this year’s 9th International AVK Conference from 19 to 20 September, 2006.
The venue was relocated from Baden-Baden to the Messegelände Essen in the Congress Center Süd, as this AVK Congress is to be a prelude to Composites Europe, the newly established European trade fair for composites scheduled for 20 to 22 September, 2006, at the same location. Two series of lectures will be held where 27 speakers are to discuss current developments and trends. Important topics include:
