A full schedule of the conference program for the second annual Composites and Advanced Materials Expo (CAMX), taking place in Dallas, US, 26-29 October 2015, is now available online.

The conference and trade show, produced by The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) and The Society for Advancement for Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE), will include more than 300 conference sessions and feature experts in more than 250 topics. Attendees can research the entire program online by track, event type, or speaker name.

The General Session will kick off with a keynote address delivered by Dr. J. Gary Smyth, Executive Director of Global Research and Development at GM. ACMA explains that he will provide insights into the future of composites in the automotive market and include what GM has learned from its long history with composites manufacturing with the Corvette.

Organisers say the Featured Sessions track covers trending hot topics in the industry, including sustainability, market growth, workforce training and consumer markets. Insights on offshore market applications by Professor Andreas Echtermeyer of the Norwegian University of Science & Technology and a look at the state of bio-based materials by Louis Pilato of Pilato Consulting are a part of this track.

"The educational sessions and technical paper presentations at CAMX will leave you thinking about ways you can implement new ideas and energy into your business plans," says Marcy Offner, CAMX Steering Committee Member and Director of Marketing Communications at Composites One.

The Conference Program will also feature the innovations of young minds in the composites industry at the Poster Session. On display throughout CAMX for all to read and learn from, the Posters are written by students, universities and company researchers.
