ICCM23 Abstract Themes 

Call for Abstracts is NOW OPEN 

abstract submissions are welcome for consideration for the 23rd International Conference on Composites Materials (ICCM 23), which will be held in Belfast, Northern Ireland from 1ST – 6TH August 2021. 

Composites Design

The Composites Design theme focuses on areas which are driving the development of the revolutionary lightweight structural design. These include, but are not restricted to, new analytical and computational methods, issues concerning safety and reliability, and novel design concepts.

Composite Materials & Structures

The Composite Materials & Structures theme presents new composite material developments encompassing different constituents, tailored structural response to loading, novel reinforcing architectures, sustainable composites, and multifunctionality. 

Composites Manufacturing and Processing

The Composites Manufacturing and Processing theme explore progress in new approaches being pursued in the creation of new composite products, improvements in existing technologies, automation, and composite repairs.
