Girona, Spain May 31 – June 2
HYBRID ON SITE – ONLINE
INSTRUCTIONS for authors
The scientific committee congratulates all authors for submitting excellent works
Please read the following instructions carefully
The size allocated for each poster corresponds to DINA0 in portrait orientation (vertical). Authors are expected to bring the printed poster to the conference (no printing services will be offered). There is no specific poster template. The organization will not be held liable for any lost or damaged posters.
Posters should be hanged the morning (before 10:00 AM) of the day of the corresponding poster session. The local staff will provide support to this task. Authors are expected to be present next to their poster during the poster sessions for discussion.
Additionally, authors are requested to submit a 120-seconds video recording describing the main contribution of their work. It will be casted in the main room (and broadcasted to remote attendants) and later made public available through the Conference web page. Showing the speaker’s face is recommended but not mandatory. If you choose to do so, please make sure that the speaker window is on the top right corner of the screen and not covering the slides.
Videos recordings should be sent via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 26th in .MP4 format. Video recordings should have resolution of 720p or better and obey 16:9 aspect ratio.
Presentations should be submitted in .pptx format via e-mail to email@example.com by May, 26th. If you have videos or animations send a link to a cloud service from which they can be downloaded.
Every presenter has 12 minutes to present, followed by 4 minutes for taking questions. Please, assure that the duration of your talk fits this time slot of 12 minutes. Take into account the expertise of the audience on the composites field and omit obvious information.
Check the correct performance of your presentation as soon as you reach the conference site. Before the session starts, introduce yourself to the session chair. During the presentation, you will be notified by the organization staff when your time is running out.
Presentations will be launched from the organization computer (by no means from individual laptop computers).

The conference will be held at the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Girona, located next to the Middle Ages city wall, at the old town of Girona, in the former XIII century gothic convent of Sant Domènec. The Faculty of Humanities is easily reachable by walk from the centre of the town (it takes between 5 and 15 minutes). Girona international airport receives direct flights from many airports in Europe. Girona high-speed railway station is in the middle of the line Barcelona-France with international high-speed services operated by Renfe and SNCF.
It’s worth mentioning that Girona is not a city for just passing through. There are so many places to start your visit. At the cathedral, with its immense nave; along the labyrinthine streets of the call, the old Jewish quarter; at the Romanesque monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants; at the Gothic basilica of Sant Feliu; at the colourful houses and the bridge over the Onyar river; or at the huge city walls. So many years of history and culture are concentrated in the city that it’s best savoured at a leisurely pace.
The coastline (Costa Brava) will also take your breath away with the beauty of its superb beaches and heavenly coves nestled among cliffs, not to mention typical Mediterranean towns.
CompTest is a series of conferences which brings together academics and industrial communities working on modelling and characterization of composite materials and structures. The main topics of CompTest within testing and model identification for structural fibre-reinforced composites:
- Model development and validation
- Advanced experimental techniques
- Simulation of structural composites
This conference series has been inspired by European Conferences on Composite Testing and Standardization (CTS). After the CTS series ended a conference with a similar emphasis on composites testing (CompTest) was organized in Châlons-en-Champagne, France in January 2003, with the scope further expanded to include model identification. The last three CompTest conferences have been held in Leuven (Belgium, 2017), Luleå (Sweden, 2019) and, due to the pandemic situation, in 2021 ONERA organized a full online conference. The 11th International Conference on Composite Testing and Model Identification, CompTest – 2023, will be hosted by the University of Girona on May 31- June 2 in Girona, Spain.
