11th Canadian – International Conference on Composites – CANCOM 2019

Knowledge-in-Practice and Smart Manufacturing for Today’s Composites Engineering Challenges

July 22-25, 2019 – Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada

Co-chairs: Dr. Abbas Milani, Dr. Reza Vaziri

CANCOM2019 focuses on research, technology and product development in emerging and growing industrial sectors, in addition to the traditional fields of application of composites – aerospace and transportation. This technical forum facilitates the exchange of information and ideas about composite materials, design and processing, and structural performance by bringing together Canadian and international participants from industry, government and academia. The event will open on July 22 with a day of industry-focused tutorials. A three-day technical conference will follow on July 23-25, featuring a variety of keynote speakers and technical presentations.
