Abstracts are now being taken for CompIC, an international conference focussing on composites in construction, which will take place 31 January – 1 February 2017 at The Park Hotel, Amsterdam, Netherlands.
CompIC 2017 will explore and explain the success stories, advantages and obstacles of using FRP composites in construction applications. Abstracts of 250 words are now being sought from potential speakers on subjects to include, but not limited to:
The deadline for abstracts is 28 October 2016 and accepted abstracts will qualify for a special speaker rate of £475, which includes a two day delegate pass and conference dinner, plus 2 night’s accommodation at The Park Hotel.
CompIC attracts a global audience of professional end-users, architects, asset owners, composite manufacturers, material suppliers, consultancies and designers. The breadth of knowledge of visitors will further add to the event’s unique meeting of minds.
The event also has sponsorship and exhibition opportunities which present organisations to a large number of industry decision makers both at the event and online.
Sue Keighley, Events and Communications Specialist at NetComposites, comments “We’re delighted to be announcing the Call for Papers for CompIC 2017 following the success of the inaugural conference in 2015 and CompIC Middle East last February. The conference promotes an active exchange of technical and scientific information between seasoned and provides fantastic networking opportunities.”
