We are pleased to announce the 2nd International Conference on Automotive Composites.

After the success of the first edition, ICAutoC 2016 will be held at the Azores, island of S. Miguel, Portugal, from October 22 to 25, 2018. ICAutoC Conference Series serve as an open forum to bring together and to disseminate knowledge between academics/researchers and industry practitioners. They are a forum for engineers and applied scientists engaged in composite materials within automotive vehicles to contribute to the field and to disseminate technical information.

ICAutoC Conferences focus on advanced composites (FRPs, reinforced thermoplastics, carbon-based composites and many others) and how they are designed, processed and utilized in automotive vehicles. They include technical sessions on advanced composites in vehicle design/analysis and intend to cover all phases of composites design, analysis, modelling, testing, manufacturing and failure analysis. It is also expected to shed light on the performance of existing composites and future developments in automotive materials technology. The term, ‘automotive’, includes passenger cars, sport utility vehicles, vans, trucks, buses and recreational vehicles.

The topics covered by the conference include (but are not limited to):

Technology developments and applications
Innovative materials, smart composites
Repair, recycling and promising process technologies
Morphing and dynamics
New lightweight composites for safer, energy-efficient and greener vehicles
Challenges regarding safety and comfort
Crashworthiness and failure analysis
Hybrid composites for structural applications
Polymer, metal, ceramic matrix and graphene-based composites
Composites manufacturing processes within vehicle components
Design and modelling methodologies
Durability of automotive components
Simulations of composites behaviour; experimental methods
Thermal problems in composite structures
Advanced solutions for processing and automation

Selected papers will also be considered for publication in special journal issues of the International Journal of Automotive Composites.


The focus of ICAutoC is to cover all aspects of technology related to Automotive Composites. In addition, and starting form this edition, ICAutoC2018 will produce new SPECIAL symposiums, alongside the main Automotive Composites Theme, providing a unique opportunity for discussion on the opportunities and challenges ahead for automotive industry.

The special symposium for this edition is Automotive Structures.

Abstracts should be submitted online and should not exceed 350 words (text only).
The deadline for abstract submission is 30th April, 2018.


Abstracts submission 30th April, 2018
Authors notification 15th May, 2018
Early registration 11th July, 2018
Authors registration 23rd July, 2018
Final papers submission 30th September, 2018
