The 9th International Conference on Advanced Composites in Construction, ACIC 2019, will take place on 3-5 September 2019 at the University of Birmingham, UK, and abstracts are invited on relevant subjects.
ACIC unites researchers and practicing engineers, asset managers and representatives of regulatory bodies, focusing 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.
Technical presentations provide an opportunity to impart research and knowledge on materials and products, cutting-edge applications, design protocol, case studies and statistical analysis. All submissions are reviewed by a committee of experts.
Proposed sessions for the conference will include, but are not limited to:
Prospective participants are invited to submit a short abstract, to include the contact details of the corresponding author and affiliation of co-authors, via the online form at acic-conference.com/call-for-papers by 9 November 2018.
“ACIC always promotes a stimulating exchange of scientific and technical information on the use of advanced composites in construction and we fully expect the 2019 edition to deliver as in previous years,” comments Sue Keighley, Conferences Manager at NetComposites. “We’re also pleased to announce the return of the Early Career Researcher poster competition which is designed to stimulate the next generation of structural engineers to showcase their research.”
Registration is now open and there are early bird delegate rates available.

Michelman will introduce visitors to the JEC Forum Chicago Conference & Business Meetings to its portfolio of fibre sizing solutions that help industry exploit the benefits of composites: design freedom, consolidation of parts, and integration of functionality while meeting lightweighting initiatives.
On 7 June 2019, the Eccellenze al lavoro [Excellence at work] award ceremony promoted by Confindustria Bergamo, the chief manufacturing and service industries association in Bergamo, was held at the Fiera di Bergamo Exhibition and Trade Centre.
Every year, JEC rewards the best cutting-edge and ingenious projects using and reinventing the use of composites in different categories, recognising the innovation and the full potential of composites.
