Message of ICCE


    Message from ICCE Chairman

    The ICCE conference is unique in that while it is an engineering conference, it has attracted numerous chemists, physicists and scientists from diverse fields in our efforts to promote interdisciplinary research on composites. Of particular concern is the challenge for materials engineers to understand the wide diversity of length scales ranging from nano to micro to macro and full scale and to question the validity of the theories or models which are known to be valid only in certain length scales. The ICCE is among the first composite materials conferences which take a leading vital role to bridge the gap between nano-chemistry and nano-engineering, and attracted hundreds of papers in this existing relatively new field of nano-composites engineering.

    The ICCE conference will provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas in virtually all areas composite materials research. The goals of the ICCE conference are:

    1. The conference aims to solve or partially SOLVE CRITICAL UNRESOLVED ISSUES of our everyday lives.  The methodologies involve the three pillars in Composites or Nano engineering, namely, Mechanics, Manufacturing and Materials, in all length-scales.   
    2. The ICCE emphasizes the "D.I.M.” approaches to science and engineering (DURABILITY approach to structures, INTERDISCIPLINARY  approach to science, and MULTIFUNCTIONAL approach to  materials).  Thus, you will find many chemists and engineers in this conference, a pleasant situation since these two groups  traditionally tend to attend separate conferences. The ICCE conference aims to bridge the gaps between aerospace technology, bio-materials, chemistry, electronics, energy, fluid mechanics, infrastructures, magnetic materials, metallurgy, nanotechnology, pharmacy, physics, powder metallurgy, sensors/actuators, among others.

    3. The goal is to ENCOURAGE LEVERAGING of composite materials research resources through joint research between participants and writing joint research proposals.


    ICCE-27 is held on July 14-20, 2019 in Granada, Spain
