KAUST Workshop: Shaping the future with Composite Materials


COHMAS Laboratory at KAUST (King Abdullah University of Science and Technology) will host on March 16-18 a high-caliber workshop aiming at discussing the latest developments in Composite Science and Engineering.

For more information, please visit the conference website at

 or COHMAS Lab website at

The workshop will be organized around following areas:

·       Addressing the needs for Composite Industry 4.0.

·       Imagining new applications in energy and transportation sectors.

·       Improving composites through big data and artificial intelligence.

·       Inventing new concepts for composite assemblies and large structures.

·       Building a composite industry.


With participants from academia, industry, and governments, this workshop will provide opportunities for exchanging ideas and discussing the current state of research and to develop feasible strategies to ensure rapid development of composites serving both economic and societal growth and stringent environmental targets.


The workshop will be centered around more presentations from invited international highly-ranked speakers (see the updated list below). We will also host round table discussions and poster sessions on composite engineering.
