The International Conference on Composite Materials (ICCM) is the premier international conference in the field of composite materials, providing a forum for the presentation, exchange and discussion of the latest research into these materials and their applications.
Professor Bronwyn Fox was a member of the team who successfully bid for Melbourne to host the 22nd ICCM in August 2019. The conference theme was “Advanced Composites: Research to Impact”, with the objective of exploring the latest research into composite materials and how they will be used in the future. This covered multiple applications including aerospace, construction, wind energy, automotive, electronics and more.
The event was sponsored and attended by Global Innovation Linkages Program partners from around the world — a program that awarded Swinburne $1 million of funding in 2019 towards Industry 4.0 manufacturing.
Professor Fox gave a plenary talk at the conference as well as chairing the Women in Composites Leadership Forum. She also participated in the Industry Discussion Forum and Boeing panel focused on industry and research collaboration.
