Alabama Composites Conference

Alabama Composites Conference

The Alabama Composites Conference will be held at the University of Alabama Birmingham Birmingham campus, June 18-20, 2013.  This conference has been held on a 2-year cycle since 2006.  The conference includes exhibits and workshops focusing on applications development for Engineered Composites in transportation, defense, power & energy sector, corrosion prevention, infrastructure and emerging technologies.

conf_pictureWorkshops on June 18th will include Managing Corrosion with FRP,  Sustainable Green Composites and Recycling, and Design, Modeling and Simulation of Composites. The conference and exhibits are scheduled for June 19th and 20th.

While this conference is not specifically oriented towards architectural issues, the focus on infrastructure may be of particular interest, and the potential for broader cross-fertilization of ideas is high.

Also, there is a possibility of a speaker addressing composites in architecture: keep watching this space for further developments.
