FPCM12

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.

Program

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

Paper

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

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.

Themes

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

  • Thermoplastic composites
  • Liquid moulding processes
  • Resin and reinforcement characterisation for processing
  • Process modelling and simulation
  • Voids and processing defects
  • Sensing and flow control
  • Design and optimisation of moulds and processes
  • Sustainable materials and processing
  • Out-of-autoclave prepreg processing
  • Experimental investigations
  • Experimental flow visualisation
  • Short fibre composites processing

Suggestions for other topics are warmly welcomed and can be forwarded to the organisation committee
