The seventh biennial Advanced Composites in Construction (ACIC) conference will be taking place on 9-11 September, 2015, at St John’s College, Cambridge, UK, and has released an all new ‘early bird’ rate for all registrations received before the end of June 2015.
Early bird registrants will be able to attend the whole event for the discounted rate of just £425. Sue Keighley, Events and Communications Specialist, said “We’re really pleased to be able to offer this 20% discount to ACIC 2015. The event is promising some fantastic speakers at this very prestigious venue.”
Bringing together practicing engineers, asset managers, researchers and representatives of regulatory bodies, 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. The aim is to promote a stimulating exchange of scientific and technical information on the rapidly changing scene of advanced composites in construction.
The program will include technical presentations with an opportunity to hear about the latest research and developments on materials and products, cutting-edge applications, design protocol, case studies and statistical analysis.
