The International Conference on Recent Advances in Composite Materials (ICRACM) was founded by their president Prof. V.K. Srivastava. Advanced composites are enabling materials for a number of demanding energy efficient and eco-friendly applications in aerospace, power generation and ground transportation. These materials have unique properties such as high strength, high stiffness, long fatigue life, low density and adaptability to the intended functions. Significant achievements have been made worldwide in the design, development, manufacturing and application of these materials in recent years and considerable innovative research is still continuing to address technical and economic challenges.
The worldwide participation and recognition led to grand success of each series of ICRACM. This year the seventh series will be hosted by the “Institut für Textiltechnik” of RWTH Aachen University.
