The 6th Global Conference on Polymer and Composite Materials (PCM 2019)
Keynote Speakers
Prof. Esteban Broitman, SKF Research & Technology Development, 3430 DT Nieuwegein, The Netherlands

Esteban Broitman holds a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina), and a Docent (Habilitation) degree in Tribology from Linköping University (Sweden). He has been doing research and teaching at the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina), The College of William & Mary (USA), Carnegie Mellon University (USA), Linköping University (Sweden), and Invited Professor at University of Sao Pablo (Brazil), and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS - China). He is presently a Senior Scientist in the area of Coatings at the SKF Research and Technology Development Center in Netherlands. His activities focus on the use of advanced surface engineering to control friction and wear at the macro-, micro-, and nano-scales of coatings like DLC, nanocomposites, and softer materials like soft metals and polymers.
Speech Title: Composite Coatings for Improved Rolling Bearing Life
Abstract: During the last three decades, carbon-based composite coatings have enjoyed a growing interest in several industrial applications. By tuning the carbon sp3-to-sp2 atomic bonding ratio and by alloying the carbon with other elements, the researchers have been able to tailor unique physical, mechanical, and tribological composite properties in order to satisfy an increased technological demand.

Prof. Peter W R Beaumont, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, UK


Peter Beaumont was assistant professor in the School of Engineering at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). He returned to England to take a position at the University of Cambridge. More...
Speech Title: Progress in the Micro-mechanics of Structural Composites
Abstract: Since the discovery and public announcement of carbon fibre 50 years ago, there has been a plethora of papers published in a growing number of journals on a variety of aspects of composite material systems and design methods of composite structures. But remarkably few (in percentage terms) have provided indepth insight of composite material behaviour over a spectrum of industrial applications and public sectors. More...
