CompTest is a series of conferences which brings together academics and industrial communities working on modelling and characterization of composite materials and structures. The main topics of CompTest within testing and model iden¬tification for structural fibre-reinforced composites are:


  • Model development and validation
  • Advanced experimental techniques
  • Simulation of structural composites


This series of conferences has been inspired by European Conferences on Composite Testing and Standardization (CTS). After the CTS series, a conference with a similar emphasis on composites testing (CompTest) was organized in Châlons-en-Champagne, France in January 2003. The scope of the conference was further expanded to model identification. The last four CompTest conferences have been held in Aalborg (Denmark, 2013), Madrid (Spain, 2015), Leuven (Belgium, 2017) and Luleå (Sweden, 2019).

The 10th international Conference on Composite Testing and Model Identification, CompTest – 2021, will be hosted by Onera, the French Aerospace lab, on 18-20th May 2021 at Palais de la Bourse in Centre of Lille, France.
