The programme for ICMAC 2018, the International Conference on Manufacturing of Advanced Composites, has been released.

The event, taking place from 11–12 July 2018 in Nottingham, UK, is a forum for academic and industrial delegates to share ideas and approaches and showcase manufacturing research for advanced composites. It will feature over 30 expert speakers and parallel sessions running over the two days.

‘We’re excited to host ICMAC 2018 in the new Advanced Manufacturing Building at the University of Nottingham,’ said 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 and will include a mix of keynote papers and presentations chosen from peer-reviewed abstracts, covering a range of industry sectors.

The event is organised on behalf of the British Composites Society, one of the technical divisions of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.
