Conference Information

The organising committee aims at a high quality conference, with thematic sessions covering a broad variety of topics in the field of flow processes in composite processing. A mixture of academic and application related contributions is envisioned.


The organising committee will offer


a 3 day single session program


thematic sessions


academic and application oriented contributions


poster sessions


careful selection of papers for oral or poster presentation


The organising committee is pleased to announce that the board of Composites Part A has agreed on offering the possibility to submit a manuscript for a special edition on the FPCM conference. The submission is subject to the following conditions:


The author’s abstract must be accepted for oral presentation (see Important Dates)


The manuscript must be submitted the latest at July 13th 2014


The manuscript is accepted or rejected according to the normal review process, controlled by the editor


The manuscript must satisfy the format specified by Composite Part A


Poster submissions will be displayed during the entire conference near the room where the conference will be held. A special poster session will be an integral part of the program.

The organisation will print all poster contributions that are submitted in pdf format on A0 paper before June 30th. A non-obligatory template will be provided in due time to assist with making the poster.


FPCM-12 will accept papers bringing an original contribution to the science and engineering of flow processes in composite materials and related topics.
