Scope High-performance composite materials have long been known as a lightweight alternative to metals in structural applications. Yet high costs have limited their application. Despite this, market forecasts predict a continuing increase in the global demand for composite materials due to light-weighting trends in several industries. Remaining competitive in the composites industry requires a continual push in research towards lower cost manufacturing methods.

The objective of this symposium is to provide a forum for presenting the latest technologies being developed to lower the manufacturing costs associated with composite materials. Abstracts are requested in the following topics as they relate to composites manufacturing: assembly/bonding, automation, inspection methods, liquid composite molding, material placement, out-of-autoclave, preforming, process modeling, process induced defects, repair, and thermoplastic materials.
