Call for Papers

ICCMREA’ 2018 reports progress and development of methodologies, technologies, planning and implementation, tools and standards in Composite Materials and Renewable Energy through its conference.

An important goal of the conference is to provide a solid platform for a diverse gathering of scholars, researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners where they can discuss ideas, innovations, applications and systems. This hub of scientific activity leads to more developments and research breakthroughs. The conference makes concerted effort to reach out to participants affiliated with diverse entities (such as: universities, institutions, corporations, government agencies, and research centers/labs) from all over the world.
