The 1251 delegates attending 17th ICCM (International Conference on Composites) voted Montreal for the 19th ICCM hosting city, which is a great news for CACSMA and Concordia University
ICCM is the biggest conference on composites in the world. It is held once every two years in a country. ICCM is an international, non-governmental, not-for-profit, scientific and engineering organization dedicated to composite materials.
Dr. S.V. Hoa, director of Concordia Centre for Composites, also President of CACSMA, sucessfully won the bidding with support from
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harpen and Quebec premier Jean Charest, support of all other
Canadian universites and many companies, will put Concordia on the spotlight on the world scale.
