 SMCCreate 2022, the design conference jointly organized by the European Alliance for SMC BMC and the AVK Expert Group SMC/BMC is postponed to 28-29 June 2022. Interested presenters still have the opportunity to submit a paper for the conference. 

This unique conference about design in SMC and BMC composite materials will provide valuable insights in the entire product design process from idea to part manufacturing, targeted both at experienced designers and at designers that are new in applying these versatile materials. 

Using SMC BMC in your part design

Within the time of only 1.5 day, the SMCCreate 2022 conference will cover a wide range of subjects, all relevant for designers in their selection of materials solutions that provide performance, cost efficiency, manufacturing ability and sustainability. 

 Call for papers 

 For all interested parties who would like to contribute their expertise on topics related to SMC/BMC, there is still the opportunity to submit presentation proposals. The deadline for submissions is 28 February 2022. Please send your presentation title, abstract, and contact details to Birgit Förster through birgit.foerster@avk-tv.de.
