NetComposites has launched a new website for the seventh biennial Advanced Composites in Construction (ACIC) conference which will take place on 9-11 September, 2015, at St John’s College, Cambridge, UK.
The new, user-friendly, website allows you to submit a paper, due by 5th December 2014, register to attend the event and view the sponsorship and exhibition packages on offer.
The conference will focus on topics within the construction industry which highlight the use of fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials in new and existing all-FRP structures as well as strengthening, refurbishment and reinforcement applications in traditional infrastructure. Bringing together practicing engineers, asset managers, researchers and representatives of regulatory bodies, the aim is to promote a stimulating exchange of scientific and technical information on the rapidly changing scene of advanced composites in construction.
The website highlights the scientific committee led by Dr Janet Lees, Senior Lecturer in Structural Engineering at the University of Cambridge, who will review all abstracts received. All speakers will be notified of acceptance before the end of January 2015, and full papers will be required by 10th April 2015.
