CANCOM2017 focuses on research, technology and product development in emerging and growth sectors, in addition to the traditional fields of application of composites - aerospace and transportation. This technical forum facilitates the exchange of information and ideas about composite materials, design and processing, and structural performance by bringing together Canadian and international participants from industry, government and academia. The event will open on July 17 with a day of industry-focused tutorials. A three-day technical conference will follow on July 18-20, featuring a variety of keynote speakers and technical presentations.
