The main objective of the workshop is to give a state of the art overview of current research in Europe and the USA on the behavior of composite materials in a marine environment. This will be achieved by bringing together leading researchers in this field and providing invited lectures and discussion over two days. A round table discussion will focus on further research required to improve the long term reliability of composite marine structures.
The workshop is organised around presentations by invited speakers. Non speakers will be able to present a poster if they wish, which will be included in the abstract book.
The workshop will take place the 23-24 August 2012, in the Ifremer Centre in Nantes.
