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 identification for structural fibre-reinforced composites are:
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).
A Virtual conference with many interactions:
A new website is currently under construction and will be available soon. It offers several possibilities of interactions to promote scientific exchanges which are a part of the DNA of such an international conference. The different points planned in this conference are:
- 3 live sessions for the keynotes (40 min) with a chat moderated by the chairman, which selects the questions to ask to the speaker (10 min).
- Live sessions for oral presentations (15 min) with a chat moderated by the chairman, which selects the questions to ask to the speaker (5 min). A virtual room will be associated to each session (constituted with 5 presentations) in order discuss about the presentations and go further in details.
- Virtual coffee breaks with networking tables (max. 8 participants with a turn-over for participants) are planned once per morning and once per afternoon to allow exchanges between presentations as we did in face-to-face meetings.
- A pre-recorded poster session (5 minutes per presentation) and a virtual room for each poster (max. 8 participants with a turn-over for participants) is planned.
- Virtual rooms to discuss about any subject and to encourage exchanges in parallel to the conference will be also available
- Virtual rooms for each sponsor to meet people is also planned to promote commercial experimental devices and softwares to research labs.
- A Virtual Welcome Drink is also planned during the first evening. Indeed, a box containing french drinks and foods will be sent at home of each attendee. Then, during the first evening, a welcome drink with virtual tables will be proposed to allow friendly and informal exchanges.
- A prize for the best poster is planned and will be awarded at the end of the conference
- An award for the best Phd-student presentation is planned and will be given at the end of the conference
