About 3rd ICAS

The 3rd International Conference on Advanced Structural and Functional Materials (ICAS 2020) will take place during August 3-7, 2020 in Lisbon, Portugal.

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 Krakow 2018; ICAS Barcelona 2019and 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, Application of Functional Materials, Coating Technology, Functional Interface Materials, Hybrid Nanomaterials, Metal Matrix Composites, Polymer Matrix Materials, and other functional materials.

In addition, the meeting will be a few days of intense collaboration with great social occasions.
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 3rd ICAS.
