2nd Ibero-American Conference on Composite Materials

20th and 21st of July, 2023
São Carlos School of Engineering
University of São Paulo, Brazil



The second Ibero-American Conference on Composite Materials 2023 will take place at the São Carlos School of Engineering (EESC/USP) on the 20th and 21st of July 2023.

This conference will be chaired by Professors Volnei Tita, António J. M. Ferreira, Lucas F. M. da Silva and Ricardo de Medeiros.

The conference will be held in a mixed format, where presentations can be held physically but also remotely, using a video-conferencing system. In both cases, 20 minutes will be available for each presentation, including 5 minutes dedicated to questions.

The focus of this conference is the study of composite materials and structures, and research works carried out in various topics within this theme will be accepted.


Among the topics covered are:

  • manufacturing and mechanical testing methods for composite materials
  • experimental and numerical studies of sandwich structures
  • functionally graded materials
  • damage, failure and delamination models
  • aeronautical composite structures and aeroelasticity
  • numerical simulation techniques
  • concrete composites
  • dynamic and impact behavior of composite materials
  • studies on wood based composites and other materials of natural origin
  • bonded and fastened joints with composite substrates
  • auxetic materials and structures
  • theory of shells, plates and beams for the study of composite laminates
  • civil engineering applications
  • thermoelectric properties of composite materials
  • thermal problems in composite materials
  • micromechanical models
  • nanocomposites
  • adaptive composite structures
  • non-destructive inspection techniques
  • optimization methods and techniques
  • porous and cellular materials
  • probabilistic and uncertainty modelling
  • smart composites
  • integrity monitoring
  • laminated composites with variable orientation fibres.
