Call for Abstracts - Joining of Composites Conference

Event details
Thursday, 21 March 2019
10:00 am – 17:00 pm
A showcase for recent international developments in composite joining

Much of the research effort in composites in recent years has focused on their manufacture, for example, to automate their lay up and speed up their cure, and much progress has been made. However, when it comes to the assembly and joining of composites to other components of similar or dissimilar materials, industry is still facing many challenges.

The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), in partnership with the Irish Composites Centre (IComp), organised a very successful event in 2017 to address some of these challenges. In order to build on this success and maintain the momentum created, a follow-up event will be held on the 21st March 2019 in Belfast, UK.

This event will be a showcase for recent international developments in composite joining that are pushing the boundaries in industry sectors where composites have become mainstream as well as in new and emerging applications.

Abstracts are invited from speakers interested in presenting their work. These need not be longer than 300 words. Posters from students will also be warmly welcomed. Please send abstracts for presentations and posters to and no later than 16 November. If successful, you will be notified and invited to present no later than 30 November.

Selected Speakers and Poster presenters will receive complimentary entry to the Conference.

Delegate tickets £100 + VAT
