The 9th International Conference on Flow Processes in Composite Materials (FPCM-9) will be held from July 7th to 9th 2008, in Montreal, Quebec (Canada). This conference is the ninth in a series devoted to the manufacturing of polymer matrix composites. Each conference has attracted papers of high quality and provided a forum for discussion between academia and industry. The previous meetings were held at:

  • Brunel University, UK (1988)
  • University of Limerick, Ireland (1991)
  • University of Galway, UK (1994)
  • University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, UK (1996)
  • University of Plymouth, UK (1999)
  • University of Auckland, New Zealand (2001)
  • University of Delaware, USA (2004)
  • École des Mines de Douai, France (2006)

Hosted in 2008 by École Polytechnique de Montréal, Canada, the conference will feature state-of-the-art achievements in composite manufacturing and liquid composite moulding with a particular emphasis on aerospace and automotive applications

One of the main goals is to help bridge the gap between theory and practice. Lecturers from academia and industry will discuss the latest scientific results on flow processes and illustrate through specific examples applications of liquid composite moulding to the manufacturing of high performance composites.
