USACA Issues Call for Papers for Annual Conference
The conference provides a forum for export-controlled information relating to advanced materials including ceramic, metal and carbon matrix composites, and their constituents.
Papers concerning processing, properties, design, application and obsolescence sustainment of advanced materials are being solicited for presentation at the 43rd Annual Conference on Composites, Materials, and Structures, which will be held by the United States Advanced Ceramics Association (USACA) January 28-31 in Cocoa Beach, Fla. The conference is organized in cooperation with the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, U.S. Army, U.S. Missile Defense Agency, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, and the U.S. Department of Energy.
The conference provides a forum for export-controlled information relating to advanced materials including ceramic, metal and carbon matrix composites, and their constituents. Presentations relating to ongoing technology and future solutions for advanced materials utilization in the aerospace, transportation, chemical process, power, medical and industrial sectors are encouraged. Authors are requested to limit their presentations to the most recent technical data and results. Sales presentations will not be accepted; a space will be provided upon request for limited display (table or poster) of new products and/or information.
Abstracts (100 words or less) must be received by the appropriate session chair via email, letter, or fax by November 9, 2018.
