About Us

For over 30 years, the American Society for Composites (ASC) has been an organization dedicated to the advancement of the science and technology of composite materials and structures.

As an all-volunteer group composed of dedicated professionals in academia, industry, national laboratories, and federal agencies, we aim to serve as the pre-eminent focal point for the technical exchange of ideas, building networks and relationships, and facilitating communication amongst individuals having a mutual interest in composites.

While this is primarily achieved through the Society's annual technical conference, other opportunities to participate and be involved exist through the Technical Divisions, organization of conference sessions, and via service in leadership positions. Please join in the continued advancement of your Society which exists to serve you and the needs of the greater composites community.

Welcome from the President

Composites and engineered materials provide system designers with many opportunities to reduce structural weight, increase performance, and enhance the durability under extreme-use conditions. The American Society for Composites (ASC) focuses on the advancement of science and engineering, which has led to numerous innovations in the field of composites. Advances in chemistry, mechanics, computational methods, manufacturing methods, and machinery are paving way to high-performance, lightweight composite structures. Members of the ASC perform multidisciplinary and multi-scale research, design and manufacture systems with composites for many large and small industries, and educate a new generation of professionals. The society is an all-volunteer organization and serves primarily as a communication and collaboration platform. The ASC engages the community through its annual technical conference through its published proceedings, awards recognizing contributions of the early-career and experienced professionals in the field, and doctoral research scholarships that encourage students to pursue careers related to composites. I invite you to join the society, attend the annual technical conference, or volunteer your time to our organization.
