The 7th Global Conference on Polymer and Composite Materials (PCM 2020)

Welcome to PCM 2020!

The 7th Global Conference on Polymer and Composite Materials (PCM 2020) will be held from August 17-20 in Cairo, the capital of Egypt.

PCM conference aims to provide a forum for academic experts and participants to exchange their experiences and share research results about all aspects of Polymer and Composite Materials and discuss the encountered practical challenges and the adopted solutions.

Cairo is one of the largest cities in Africa and the Middle East. It has long been a center of the region's political and cultural life, and is titled "the city of a thousand minarets" for its preponderance of Islamic architecture. It’s famous Giza pyramid complex and the ancient city of Memphis are always there to remind you the glory time of ancient Egypt.
