SPE Announces Dates, Location, Theme for Twelfth Automotive Composites Conference & Exhibition (ACCE)

february 7 2012

The organizing committee for the SPE Automotive Composites Conference and Exhibition (ACCE) has announced the dates, theme, and location for this year's show and issued its annual Call for Papers. This year's event, whose theme is Unleashing the Power of Design, returns September 11-13, 2012 to the MSU Management Education Center in Troy, Mich., U.S.A.

Creig Bowland, senior research associate at PPG Industries, and the 2011 and 2012 SPE ACCE conference chair said, "With the global automotive industry growing again after several difficult years, and with a host of tough new emissions and fuel-economy standards looming for the industry to meet, interest in lightweight materials like polymer composites is at an all-time high. Fortunately, the composites industry has a broad portfolio representing a wide range of cost, performance, and processing options from which to choose. Whether automakers are working on low volume/performance platforms, or high volume/economy platforms, they will find materials and process options that will meet their needs. And the best way to keep on top of the very latest technology innovations in this field is to attend the annual SPE ACCE show."

Those interested in speaking at this year's event should submit abstracts by March 31, 2012 to the review committee via ACCEpapers@speautomotive.com. Full papers or presentations are due May 31, 2012. Authors who submit papers (not presentations) in the proper format will be considered for the conference's Best Paper Awards, which will be presented during the event's opening ceremony.
