On May 23, 2018, the International Conference on Theoretical, Analytical and Computational Methods for Composite Materials and Composite Structures (ICOMP 2018) was held at the International Academic Exchange Center of Wuhan University (Hongyi Hotel). Party Secretary of the School of Civil Engineering Shifu LEI and Dean Quansheng LIU attended the opening ceremony. Vice Dean Heng HU presided over the opening ceremony.

The conference was jointly organized by Wuhan University and Mechanics Society of Hubei Province. The supporting media is Composite Structures (IF=3.858), an internationally important academic journal in the field of composite materials and structures.

More than 160 experts and scholars from more than 10 countries including France, Italy, Australia, South Korea and India exchanged views on all those aspects related to composite materials and structures and reported a total of 133 reports. Among them, Prof. Salim BELOUETTAR from Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology, Prof. Weiqiu CHEN from Zhejiang University, Prof. Liaoliang KE from Beijing Jiaotong University, Prof. De XIE from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Prof. Yufeng XING from Beihang University, Prof. Xuefeng YAO from Tsinghua University and Prof. Lei ZU from Hefei University of Technology were invited to give plenary lectures.

The conference aims to provide a platform for researchers and practitioners to discuss and share the latest findings and developments in the field of composite materials and structures, and hopefully to promote discipline prosperity, technological innovation and industrial development of this field. Through a combination of invited reports and academic reports, the conference demonstrated the latest research on theoretical, analytical and computational methods for advanced composite materials and structures and their applications in mechanics, engineering and the applied sciences.

The organization of this conference is mainly completed by the School of Civil Engineering. The chairmen are the editor-in-chief of Composite Structures, Professor Antonio Ferreira from University of Porto in Portugal and the associate editor of Composite Structures, Prof. Heng HU from Wuhan University. Dr. Qian SHAO and Dr. Qun HUANG from Wuhan University are the secretaries-general of the conference.
