The 2nd ICAS

The 2nd International Conference on Advanced Structural and Functional Materials (ICAS 2019) will take place from August 19 to 23, 2019 in Barcelona, Spain.

In the recent years, the interests of advanced functional materials have a tremendous growth. Aiming to promoting the research worldwide and build a platform for scientists, engineers, scholars of this field, we held the workshop Advanced Composites in Cuba on May 2017, ICAS in Krakow, Poland on August 2018 and achieved a great success. We are welcome you to learn, to share, and to exchange the point of view on composite materials on this impressive meeting. This meeting will focus on Advanced Composites, Coating Technology, Functional Interface Materials, Hybrid Nanomaterials, Metal Matrix Composites, Polymer Matrix Materials, and other composite materials.

In addition, the meeting will be a few days of intense collaboration with great social occasions. Barcelona is the capital and largest city of Catalonia in Spain, as one of the largest metropolises on the Mediterranean Sea, located on the coast between the mouths of the rivers Llobregat and Besòs. It is one of the world’s leading tourist, economic, trade fair and cultural centres, its influence in commerce, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science, and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world’s major global cities.
It will be not only be a time to enjoy the company of fellow researchers in the field, but also a time to have fun with friends and family!

Look forward to having the pleasure welcoming you to the 2nd ICAS.
