The dawn of the Learning Factory at UBC; If medicine has teaching hospitals, why does engineering not have learning factories?

11th Canadian – International Conference on Composites 2019

Knowledge-in-Practice and Smart Manufacturing for Today’s Composites Engineering Challenges

July 22-25, 2019 – Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada

CANCOM2019 focuses on research, technology and product development in emerging and growing industrial sectors, in addition to the traditional fields of application of composites – aerospace and transportation. This technical forum facilitates the exchange of information and ideas about composite materials, design and processing, and structural performance by bringing together Canadian and international participants from industry, government and academia. The event will open on July 22 with a day of industry-focused tutorials. A three-day technical conference will follow on July 23-25, featuring a variety of keynote speakers and technical presentations.

The following session topic areas are being developed for CANCOM2019:


 Aerospace Forming and automated processes
 Automotive Design and analysis
 Civil structures Manufacturing and process modelling
 Armour Bonding and joining
 Marine Repair
 Nanocomposites Durability, fatigue and damage tolerance
 High temperature composites Inspection methods
 Sandwich structures Certification
 Textile composites Materials characterization and testing
 Smart structuresComposites 4.0 (new topic)

CANCOM 2019 will be run in parallel with the Industry 4.0 Summer School, in collaboration with German Aerospace Center (DLR) and Microsoft.
