CAMX 2016, North America's largest composites and advanced materials trade show and conference, has issued its call for abstracts for the 2016 conference. The conference offers more than 300 technical and business sessions covering every market and focus area of the composites and advanced materials communities. CAMX 2016 will be held Sept. 26-29 in Anaheim, CA, US.

Abstract deadline is March 1, 2016.

The primary submitters of the abstracts will be notified via email whether or not their abstracts were selected by March 31, 2016. If your abstract is accepted for this conference, you must adhere to the following deadlines based on your submission type.

  • Technical Paper Due: May 4, 2016
  • Education Session Outline Due: June 1, 2016

Technical Paper and Education Session submissions may be rejected in later stages if the submission no longer aligns with the original abstract submission, or is determined to be too commercial. All obvious commercial sales pitches will not be accepted for a presentation.

  • Composites 101: Fibers and resins

    Compared to legacy materials like steel, aluminum, iron and titanium, composites are still coming of age, and only just now are being better understood by design and manufacturing engineers. However, composites’ physical properties — combined with unbeatable light weight — make them undeniably attractive. 

  • Additive manufacturing comes to composites fabrication

    The use of continuous fiber in additive manufacturing systems is not trivial, but it is being done. As this fabrication technology evolves and matures, options for applying it in everything from automotive to aerospace to consumer composites will expand tremendously, creating a host of new opportunities for the composites industry. Read here for who is providing what kind of additive manufacturing technology for use in composites fabrication.
