22-24 April 2013
Aalborg University, Denmark
Abstracts are invited for the "6th International Conference on Composites Testing and Model Identification - CompTest 2013” to take place in Aalborg, Denmark, 22-24 April 2013.

CompTest Conference Series
Previous conferences in this series were held in Châlons en Champagne (France) in January 2003, Bristol (UK) in September 2004, Porto (Portugal) in April 2006, Dayton (USA) in October 2008, and lastly Lausanne (Switzerland) in February 2011.
This conference aims at bringing together the International scientific community working in the field of testing and modelling of composite materials and structures. It is well accepted that testing such heterogeneous and anisotropic materials and structures raises a number of challenges to researchers, such as the identification of numerous parameters, the development of specific test fixtures (shear, compression, fracture toughness), or the control of parasitic effects. As a consequence, the development of testing and model identification procedures is broadly recognized as an interesting and important area. Moreover, recent developments in optical whole-field measurement techniques (speckle interferometry, digital image correlation, among others) and in-situ damage monitoring (acoustic emission, optical fiber sensors) open a very broad field of investigation. Testing and identification procedures for composites which have been developed over the last few decades based on limited local strain measurements have to be adapted to make full use of the enormous amount of data that whole-field methods provide. Apart from the large general composites conferences (ICCM, ECCM), there are very few occasions to exchange information on the topic of composites testing and model identification. The single session format of the conference is to provide a unique opportunity for an informal and focused scientific exchange on the topic.
The conference will focus on all issues related to identifying parameters for modelling the mechanical and physical behaviour of composite materials. Particular attention will be given to innovative identification procedures, interactions between testing and modelling, in-situ damage monitoring, and the use of whole-field measurements. All composite materials will be addressed including (but not limited to) polymers, cements, ceramics, metallic matrices, carbon fibres, glass fibres, boron fibres, natural fibres, wood.
The conference venue is the campus of Aalborg University (AAU), which offers excellent facilities for high quality scientific interactions. Aalborg in North Denmark is a modern dynamic city with some 200,000 inhabitants (municipality), thus being the 4th largest city in Denmark. Aalborg is a bustling university city boasting an intimate and historic city centre. Still, it is a real human scale city with everything within walking distance, where conference delegates will sense full intimacy and not feel lost. Everything a keen conference delegate could desire is available in the city of Aalborg and the surrounding region at the northern tip of Denmark’s Jutland peninsula. Aalborg Airport (AAL), the main gateway to North Denmark, is conveniently situated just a short 10 minutes transfer from downtown Aalborg. The airport is linked with Copenhagen Airport by more than 20 daily flights, as well as direct international flights to among other destinations Amsterdam, London/Gatwick, Berlin, Barcelona and Oslo. Copenhagen is the main air traffic hub of Scandinavia, and is served by some 60 international airlines flying non-stop from 120 cities around the world.
The conference registration fee is €575, with a discounted fee of €400 for students.
The registration fee includes the welcome reception, coffee breaks, refreshments and luncheons every day, the conference banquet and the book of abstracts.
Accompanying persons who wish to attend the welcome reception and conference banquet will have to pay an additional fee.
Detailed information about conference registration will be made available on the web site: www.CompTest2013.dk <http://www.comptest2013.dk/>
A maximum of two pages pdf or word document, which includes main new results with one or two keyfigures, should be uploaded electronically via the conference website.
Detailed instructions regarding the preparation of abstracts are available on the conference web site including a template in MS Word).
A full written paper is not required for the conference.
After the conference, and based on the advice of the international scientific committee, selected authors will be invited to submit manuscripts for possible publication to Composites Part A: Applied Science and Manufacturing via the normal review process.
Deadline for Submission of Abstracts:

Call for Papers
Incorporating the 1st International Conference on Simulation Process and Data Management
SPDM International Conference
9-12 June 2013, Salzburg, Austria in conjunction with the NAFEMS World Congress 2013
The NAFEMS World Congress 2013, being held 9-12 June 2013 in Salzburg, Austria, will be the only independent, global conference that focuses entirely on simulation and its impact on industry and beyond. As the international association dedicated to engineering analysis and simulation, NAFEMS has gained respect as being the independent voice of the CAE community, representing over 1000 member organizations worldwide including prominent software vendors, global manufacturing industry and leading academic institutions. Over the past three years, NAFEMS has held a series of dedicated conferences on the topic of simulation process and data management in both Europe and North America. The popularity of these has been such that the 1st International SPDM Conference has been launched, and will run alongside the NAFEMS World Congress in 2013. Bringing together industrial users, technology experts, academics and software vendors alike, this ground-breaking event will allow all those with an interest to take part in the first truly independent, international forum dedicated to SPDM, as well as having access to the full Congress program. This landmark conference addresses the breakthrough technology of SDM and will help participants better understand the benefits gained from implementing a Simulation Data Management system and how to save time, reduce development costs, and improve time-to-market.
