The Aachen Reinforced Symposium is a bi-annual meeting in the field reinforcement fibre production and composite manufacturing. The symposium build on the long time success of the International Glass Fiber Symposium and the Symposium for Tailored Carbon Fibres. Both events are now combined into the new Aachen Reinforced symposium, catering for a large audience of experts while maintaining its focus and charm. Aachen Reinforced is unique as it is the only symposium which focuses on the fibre production from raw materials to finished procuts. The aim of the symoposium is to serve as the principal international forum for reporting outstanding research and development on carbon and glass fibre as well as composite technology from raw materials to final applications. Parallel sessions will be held on glass and carbon fibre production in an intimate and small setting. This ensures an in depth and focused discussion on the fibre production process from raw materials to finished fibres which is unique to this symposium. In subsequent joint sessions on the fibre-matrix interface and composite materials, the carbon and glass fibre industries will come together to conclude the symposium. Aachen Reinforced will take place from 11. – 13. May 2020 in Aachen (Germany), and will host experts on carbon and glass fibre as well as composite technology from around the globe. The symposium provides an opportunity for you to learn about the latest trends in technology and research, as well as to network with the respective experts.
