NetComposites Launches Composites in Sport Conference

NetComposites is pleased to announce the launch of a brand new, one-day conference spotlighting the current and future use of composite materials in sport.

Composites in Sport will take place at the Holywell Park Conference Centre at Loughborough University, UK on 16 November 2016.

Sporting success is often the result of marginal advantages, whether that is in terms of the individual competitor, their training regime, or the equipment they employ. In pursuit of these marginal advantages, composites are now the material of choice for many sporting goods where their benefits in terms of high stiffness, low weight, protection and customisation are enjoyed by elite athletes and enthusiastic amateurs alike.

Composites in Sport will explore new composite material developments in sports-related applications including equipment, safety wear, apparel, prosthetics and infrastructure. It is aimed at material developers and suppliers, manufacturers, researchers, regulatory bodies and athletes of all abilities.

Abstracts are now being accepted from potential speakers on subjects relating to the use of composite materials in sport to include, but not limited to:

  • New material developments for sporting competitive advantage.
  • Testing and certification of composite sporting goods.
  • Sporting infrastructure and facilities.
  • Case studies of performance-enhancing composites in sport.
  • Manufacturing composite sporting goods for consumer mass markets.

Visit http://compositesinsport.com/ to register and take advantage of the early bird offer available until 16 September 2016.
