CAMX 2016: Last chance to submit abstracts

CAMX, the largest composites event in the largest composites market, is still accepting abstract proposals for its conference program.

�

CAMX 2016 — Sept. 26-29 in Anaheim, CA, US — will be the largest composites trade show in the world's largest composites market. As such, it offers an unparalleled opportunity to reach out to the vast collection of composites professionals who will be in Anaheim to catch up on the latest in materials, processes, tooling and research and development.

CAMX is in the final stages of conference program development, which means this is your last chance to submit an abstract for consideration. CAMX offers more than 300 technical and business sessions covering every market and focus area of the composites and advanced materials communities. A full list of topics is below. Those marked with an asterisk (*) are in particular need of papers.

CAMX is still accepting abstracts for a few categories. Contact conference@thecamx.org to request an extension. Be sure to include the category/topic you plan to submit for consideration.
