The call for papers has launched for the next edition of CompIC ME (Composites in Construction Middle East), an international conference taking place 14-15 February 2018 at the Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach, Dubai, UAE.
The conference is being held amongst the composite flooded Dubai skyline, and will introduce and educate visitors on the current and future use of fibre reinforced composites in construction, detailing innovations and trends in the industry, potential for weight saving on large span structures, economic advantages, whole life cost, architectural freedom and diversity and challenging traditional architectural design.
Abstracts are now being sought from potential speakers on subjects relating to the use of FRP composites in construction to include, but not limited to;
Presentations reach an international 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.

Tecniplas has completed the production of a 250 m³ tank for storage of drinking water for the Catarinense Water and Sanitation Company (Casan).
OCSiAl’s Nanoaugmented Materials Industry Summit gathered together around 400 industry players from 30 countries to learn more about producing high performance nano-augmented materials with single wall carbon nanotubes.
When the concrete platform at a Billerica, Massachusetts, US, commuter rail station collapsed in 2015, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) closed its North and South mini-high handicap accessible platforms at its West Natick Station. The structures, built with ramps and elevated loading sections, make boarding easy for individuals with disabilities. MBTA needed a high-performance, corrosion-resistant replacement for the structures and selected Composite Advantage’s fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) deck panels.
