The programme for ICMAC 2018, the 11th International Conference on Manufacturing of Advanced Composites, has been released.
With over 30 expert speakers and parallel sessions running over two days on the 11- 12 July 2018 in Nottingham, UK, the event will provide a forum for both academic and industrial delegates to share ideas and approaches and showcase world-leading manufacturing research for advanced composites, recognising and responding to industry needs.
“We’re excited to host ICMAC 2018 in the new Advanced Manufacturing Building at the University of Nottingham,” says Dr Lee Harper, chair of the organising committee. “We’re really pleased with the diversity of the programme, with a good mix of international speakers from both academia and industry discussing emerging manufacturing technologies within the composites sector.”
The conference will be preceded by a one-day Hub/IDC open day on 10 July, which is free to attend. It offers a mix of keynote papers presented by internationally renowned experts and presentations chosen from peer-reviewed abstracts, all of which will cover a diverse range of industry sectors. Full details will be available shortly.
The event is organised on behalf of the British Composites Society (one of the technical divisions of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining), which aims to provide a single authoritative voice for individuals which are practising science and engineering within the field of composites.
