Dear colleague,

I would like to inform you of the 3rd International Conference on Industrial Applications of Adhesives 2024, which will take place in Cascais, Portugal, 7-8 March 2024 ( The conference venue is the 5 stars hotel Cascais Miragem , which offers excellent facilities for high quality scientific interactions. The hotel is located in front of the Atlantic Ocean overlooking Estoril and Cascais Bay. It is just 30 minutes from Lisbon's international airport.

The conference is chaired by Lucas F. M. da Silva and co-chaired by R. D. Adams (University of Oxford, UK), Chiaki Sato (Tokyo Institute of Technology) and Prof. Klaus Dilger (Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany). The focus will be on applications of adhesive bonding in the industry such as automotive, aeronautic, railway, marine, energy, electronics, etc. The idea is to bring together the adhesive makers and the adhesive users to exchange experiences and facilitate potential synergies and partnerships. In this link, you can find the programme of the 2nd International Conference on Industrial Applications of Adhesives IAA 2022, so that you can have an idea of the type of participants and themes treated in IAA conferences.

The scientific committee includes Andreas Lutz (Dupont, Switzerland), Anne Dussaud (Momentive, USA), Arunjunai Raj Mahendran (Wood KPlus, Austria), Cristina Frutuoso (Colquímica, Portugal), David Ruch (Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology, Luxembourg), Eduardo Marques (INEGI, Portugal), Ewen Kellar (The Welding Institute, UK), Francisca Arán-Ais (INESCOP Innovation and Technology Centre, Spain), Frida Gilbert (Arcelor Mittal, France), Holger Fricke (Fraunhofer IFAM, Germany), Jens Kosmann (DLR, Germany), Jun Que (Sika, Switzerland), Kimiyoshi Naito (NIMS, Japan), Koji Kamiyama (MitsubishiElectric, Japan), Łukasz Sadowski (Wroclaw University of Science and Technology, Poland), Maxime Olive (Rescoll, France), Nao Terasaki (AIST, Japan), Niat Rahman (GM, USA), Nicolas Cuvillier (SAFRAN, France), Patrick Peres (Airbus Safran Launchers, France), Patrick Stihler (Robert Bosch GmbH, Germany), Paulo Neves (Frezite, Portugal), Philipp Weißgraeber (University of Rostock, Germany), Romain Créac'hcadec (ENSTA, France), Stefan Böhm (University of Kassel, Germany), Stephen Howe (Sunstar, USA), Stefan Kreling (Airbus, Germany), Yusuke Takahashi (Kobe Steel, Japan)
