Call For Papers
Abstract Deadline October 13, 2017
Papers concerning processing, properties, design, application and obsolescence/sustainment of advanced materials are being solicited for presentation at the 42nd Annual Conference on Composites, Materials, and Structures conference 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 is sponsored by the United States Advanced Ceramics Association (USACA). 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 on-going 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 e-mail, letter, or fax by Friday, October 13, 2017. Abstracts received after this date are not guaranteed to be included in the conference program.
The Registration Fee is $460.00 and an Early Bird Registration Discounted Fee of $400.00 is being offered to conference participants registered and paid by Friday, November 10, 2017. U.S. Citizenship or U.S. Permanent Resident, Green Card Holder verification is required and Militarily Critical Technical Data Agreement Certification Form DD2345 is required of non-government attendees at registration check-in.
The conference proceedings will be published as Distribution C, marked ITAR Restricted and will be mailed to conference attendees. Please note, every location of a company MUST have its own certification. For example, if your organization's headquarters are in Washington, DC, but you work at an office in San Diego, CA, your certified DD2345 MUST have the address for the San Diego office. One certified DD2345 at the headquarters does not blanket all locations of an organization. University certification is by department and not University wide.
