The Australian Composites Structures Society (ACSS) has issued a call for papers for its 2017 Advanced Composites Innovation Conference which takes place from 28–30 March 2017 in Queensland, Australia.

The conference aims to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and knowledge, present the latest developments and trends, propose new solutions and applications and facilitate collaborations.

 A Best Paper Award of AUS$500 cash and a certificate will be awarded to the presenting author of the best peer reviewed paper at the conference dinner on Wednesday 29 March.

The ACSS is soliciting abstracts on papers for the peer reviewed stream on (but not limited to) topics relevant to the conference title, such as new and emerging composite technologies, new and emerging composite fibres, resins and systems, novel and new technical applications, innovative solutions to design and engineering challenges, performance analysis and standards and support for industry.
