I am very pleased to invite you to attend The seventeenth European Conference on Composite Materials (ECCM17) to be held in the famous city of Munich (Germany) from June 26th to 30th, 2016.
The conference is organised by the Institute for Carbon Composites of the Technische Universität München (TUM) and the Leading-Edge Cluster MAI Carbon, under the patronage of the European Society for Composite Materials (ESCM). TUM is one of Europe’s top universities. It is committed to excellence in research and teaching, interdisciplinary education and the active promotion of promising young scientists. MAI Carbon is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and consists of companies, training and research facilities, as well as supporting organisations, which are active within the technological field of carbon-fibre reinforced plastics in the region of Munich-Augsburg-Ingolstadt (MAI).
ECCM is Europe‘s leading conference on composite materials. As such the Munich event will follow the long tradition of the ECCM conference series with a wide scope of topics in composite technologies. The conference will attract internationally renowned scientists and engineers in the field of aerospace, automotive and mechanical engineering and will bring together the scientific and the application-oriented world.
An attractive background programme will be arranged to complement the interesting presentations and discussions. For the first time a special evening event will be organized for PhD students. Special attention is given to the social programme to obtain the maximum benefit from the beauty of Munich and Bavaria.
We are looking forward to welcoming the world’s composite community in Munich.
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Klaus Drechsler
