This year, the focus was on Automotive and Global Carbon Fiber Market.
The second edition outlined how composites for mass production are ready for take-off into all industry markets. I.C.S. was well received by attendees with the following subjects: “Introducing next generation integrated composites aerostructures” for Aeronautics, “Widening the use of structural composites” for Construction & Civil Engineering and “Producing high quality in a high quantity” for Wind Energy.
During the I.C.S., JEC Group also introduced brand new and very successful cross-industry conferences and forums: Nano Materials (“Enhancing the mechanical and physical properties of composites”) and Non Destructive Testing in partnership with CETIM.
Finally during I.C.S. second edition, JEC Group launched for the first time in Paris an Economic conference, where well-known experts provided a global overview of the composite market worldwide.
The dates were also announced for the 3rd edition of I.C.S. on JEC Asia 2011, which will be held on 18-20 October in Singapore, at Suntec.
