AVK Conference program now available

The International AVK Conference on Fibre Reinforced Plastics/Composites will kick off the COMPOSITES EUROPE trade fair and will be held Sept. 16-17.

The program for this year's International AVK Conference on Fibre Reinforced Plastics/Composites, which will take place at the ICS International Congress Center Stuttgart (Germany) Sept. 16-17, is now available.

As always, the event's participants can look forward to a compact event featuring two series of presentations with speakers who will provide an overview of all the currently relevant topics in the composites market.

Lightweight applications, including those in the automotive and aerospace sectors, high-performance sport and boatbuilding, illustrate the enormous possibilities offered by fiber-reinforced plastics/composites.

Presentations on developments in the European and global composites markets will highlight the current growth in the glass fiber and carbon fiber composites markets. Scientific experts will present their latest findings in the fiber composites sector in a series of lectures entitled "Research for practical applications."

The presentation of this year's AVK Innovation Award on the evening of the first day of the conference and the subsequent Composites Night provide opportunity for conversation. The conference will close with a panel discussion entitled "Composites – Materials Caught Between Dream and Reality,” during which experts will discuss the variety of composite materials available and their possible applications.

The AVK Conference is, as usual, the opening event at the COMPOSITES EUROPE trade fair, which will take place in Stuttgart on Sept. 16-17. Visit www.avk-tv.de for more information.
