2018 5th Global Conference on Polymer and Composite Materials (PCM 2018)
Welcome to PCM 2018!

The 2018 5th Global Conference on Polymer and Composite Materials (PCM 2018) will be held from April 10th to 13th, 2018 in Kitakyushu City, Japan. PCM 2018 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. The plenary session of PCM 2018 will include Keynote Speeches, Invited Speeches, Poster Presentations and Oral Presentations.

Kitakyushu is located on the northern tip of Kyushu Island and is the second largest city in terms of population on this island. With views over the Sea of Japan and the Seto Inland Sea, and with forty percent of the city's area comprised of rich forest, it is a city blessed with an abundance of nature. It has many notable attractions include Kokura Castle, the port town of Mojiko Retro, the Hiraodai Limestone Plateau (one of the three major karst plateaus of Japan), and many leisure facilities. Kitakyushu City also has a vast menu of appetizing dishes, such as Kokura beef, and Yaki-udon, as well as many other delicacies harvested from the mountains and sea.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to attend PCM 2018 and we look forward to meeting you all in Kitakyushu, Japan!

Note: PCM 2019 is scheduled to be held in Chiang Mai, Thailand. We are looking for cooperation opportunities with local universities.
