Please note that the conference is not limited to the above topics. If
you have ideas for additional topics, please feel free to contact the organizers'
mailing list: email@example.com.
While the scope of the conference is broad, high-quality papers will be guaranteed through a careful review and selection process, in following with the tradition of ICCM. Relevance to the conference, accuracy, originality of ideas, and significance of the results will be evaluated during the review process.
Please nominate a world-leading researcher or engineer in composites as
the plenary lecture speaker by using the form downloaded here. The organizer
will prepare 9 or 10 seats of plenary lectures including the "Scala"
Lecture. The selection will be conducted by the local organizing committee
except for the "Scala" Lecture.
|Plenary Speaker Recommendation
