9th International Symposium on Composites Manufacturing for high performance applications

Welcome to the official website of ISCM 2020!

The goal of ISCM is to promote discussion on recent developments in manufacturing of high performance composites and
related areas. Discussions at ISCM involve analysis of emerging
issues, the state of the art in composites manufacturing and
discussion on those developments that will shape the near future of composites applications.
ISCM has a tradition in aerospace composites manufacturing,
but is open to all, who develop composite products for high
performance applications, to present their achievements.
Non-aerospace related high performance composites applications are therefore very welcome to be presented at ISCM.
ISCM 2020 will be held on 4th and 5th of November 2020 at the
Centre for Lightweight-Production-Technology, Stade of the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) in Stade – Germany

ISCM is a biennial event organised by the German Aerospace
Centre DLR and the Dutch National Aerospace Laboratory
NLR who act as alternate hosts.


ISCM 2020 will focus on the following topics in the context of composite manufacturing:

• Development of manufacturing techniques
• Automated manufacturing
• Material performance
• Cost reduction
• Joining technologies
• Industrialisation
• Novel design methods
• Innovative tooling concepts
• Process control
• Quality assurance
• Certification issues
• Sustainability aspects
• Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul
• Life Cycle Assessment

The scientific committee is looking forward to receive abstracts in the addressed fields.

Scientific committee:
• Prof. Dr. Martin Wiedemann
• Dr. Jan Stüve
• Ir. Henri de Vries
• Ir. H.G.S.J. (Bert) Thuis
