The organizers of the International Conference on Manufacturing of Advanced Composites (ICMAC) have issued a call for papers.

The event, which will take place from 26–27 August 2020 in Edinburgh, Scotland, will feature academic research papers as well as case studies from the composites industry. It follows the UK EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Hub open day taking place at the same venue on 25 August.

Abstracts may be submitted in the area of manufacturing of fiber-reinforced polymer composite materials, with preference being given to the following:

  • New and novel manufacturing technologies
  • Use of digital technologies in manufacturing
  • Automated deposition and processing technologies
  • Sustainable manufacture
  • Out-of-autoclave and vacuum-bag-only processing for large structures
  • 3D printing, additive and hybrid manufacturing of composites
  • Design for manufacture via validated simulation
  • Characterisation of composite material flow and processing behaviour
  • Manufacturing for multifunctional composites and integrated structures
  • Inspection, NDE and in-process evaluation.
