ICCM22 is organised by the Australian Composite Structures Society, which is a technical society of the Institution of Engineers Australia.
Australian Composite Structures Society
The Australian Composite Structures Society (ACSS) was founded in December 1992 to facilitate discussion of ideas and developments in composite materials in Australia. Australia has a developing composites industry which is supported by commercial, government and university research organisations, as well through international collaboration.
The objectives of ACSS are to guide and foster the acquisition and exchange of knowledge in all matters pertaining to composite structures, and in particular to:
- act as a learned society embracing all aspects of engineering theory and practice, relevant to the structural application of composite materials in Australia;
- promote the wider structural application of composite materials in the interests of Australian economic development;
- inform its members of local and overseas activities of scientific and engineering significance in the field of composite structures;
- provide opportunities for intellectual and fraternal exchange for Society members with a common interest in the development of composite structures and associated technologies;
- liaise with other scientific and engineering bodies with similar aims, and in particular to represent Australia on international organisations, such as the International Committee for Composite Materials.
ACSS organised the 11th International Conference on Composite Materials, held at the Gold Coast, Queensland in 1997.
The Institution of Engineers Australia, often shortened to Engineers Australia (EA), is a professional body and not-for-profit organisation dedicated to being the national forum for the advancement of the engineering field within Australia and a member of Washington Accord. EA has over 100,000 members in nine geographic Divisions from all engineering disciplines, including 41,000 Students, 4,400 Engineering Technologists and Engineering Associates, 55,600 Professional Engineers. The members all belong to one or more of nine Colleges covering the different fields of engineering practice. Over 20,000 members are Chartered Engineers.
