Important Announcement

ICCM23 Postponed Until 2023

Dear Colleagues

After much deliberation over the past few weeks, the Local Organising Committee, along with the ICCM Executive Committee, has taken the difficult decision to postpone ICCM23 until 2023.

This decision was not taken lightly but given the uncertain outlook that still persists for 2021, in the shadow of COVID-19, we felt that there is a significant likelihood that numerous restrictions on international travel and social interactions will still be in place. We had considered a hybrid or an online event, but these are not economically viable under the current contractual agreements that we have in place. Moreover, we strongly believe that a physical meeting in Belfast will be a far richer and fruitful experience than any other form.

We are delighted to announce that we have new dates and ICCM23 will be taking place from 30th July to 4th August 2023.  As a result, ICCM24 which will be hosted in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, and was originally scheduled for 2023, will be now be hosted in 2025.

Best wishes

2023 marks the first time that the International Conference on Composite Materials (ICCM) will be held on the island of Ireland, in the historic city of Belfast. It is appropriate that Belfast, with its rich pioneering and engineering heritage, should be chosen to host ICCM 23. The birthplace of Lord Kelvin and home to John Boyd Dunlop, Belfast was a global powerhouse of the Industrial Revolution, becoming Ireland’s pre-eminent industrial city, where the RMS Titanic was built in what was then the world’s largest shipyard.

It is home to the oldest production aircraft manufacturer in the world, Short Brothers, which was founded in 1908 and purchased by Bombardier in 1989. The pioneering technology for the manufacture of the highly-integrated resin-infused composite wing, used on the Airbus A220, was developed here.

Today, Belfast is a vibrant, modern and increasingly multicultural city with a solid high-value manufacturing base and an entrepreneurial spirit. I look forward to welcoming you to this exciting city!
