Join Leading Experts in Composites and Manufacturing Research for Advanced Composites

In just under two weeks, IOM3 will be welcoming delegates to International Conference on Manufacturing of Advanced Composites (ICMAC2021).

This virtual event provides a forum for academia and industry to share ideas and approaches, showcasing world-leading manufacturing research for advanced composites, recognising and responding to industry needs.

Dr Lee Harper, Manager of the EPSRC Future Composite Manufacturing Research Hub and on the ICMAC Organising Committee said, 'I like ICMAC because it is an intimate international conference, bringing together composite manufacturing scientists, engineers and end users from both academia and industry. It has a relaxed feeling, and the high-quality presentations provide an insight into the latest technology developments from pioneers and emerging leaders in the composites field.'

Leading global researchers and practitioners in composites manufacturing will offer keynote lectures during the conference including:

  • Frederic Sicard, Subject Matter Expert - Structural Composite
  • Swinburne Medal Lecture Professor Steve Eichhorn, University of Bristol
  • Dr R Byron Pipes, Executive Director, Indiana Manufacturing Institute, Purdue University, USA
  • Dr Turlough McMahon, Airbus, Toulouse, France

The conference will be fully interactive through an interactive app available on your desktop and on your phone which facilitates live Q&A’s, polling and surveys, as well as individual or group discussions.
