ABOUT THE EVENT

 

AuxDefense2024 — 4th World Conference on Advanced Materials for Defense – Beyond Boundaries is sponsored by the Portuguese Ministry of National Defense, organized by the University of Minho, Fibrenamics and Sciencentris, and it’s focused on the latest scientific and technical novelties in advanced materials for Defense, including air, sea, land and space applications.

The conference will bring together various universities, researchers, technological centers, companies, and all of the entities interested in innovative solutions for this very high-demanding field. The conference also aims to be a place that promotes the exchange of ideas, the presentation of the latest developments and trends, the proposal of new solutions, and, ultimately promote international collaborations.

Venue – Braga

 

The AuxDefense Conference will occur on June 20, 21, and 22 of 2024, at Meliá Braga Hotel & SPA (Onsite), in Braga, a city with over 2000 years of history.

For this edition, the interaction between academia and industry will be highly enhanced with specific sessions and activities, beyond the scientific program, oriented for this purpose, including Industry Sessions, an Exhibition of Innovative Solutions, B2B meetings, and Discussion Roundtables.

Like in the previous editions that occurred in Guimarães (2022), Online (2020), and Lisbon (2018) the AuxDefense Conference will gather together various universities, researchers, technological centers, companies, and all of the entities interested in innovative solutions for this very high-demanding field. The conference also aims to be a place that promotes the exchange of ideas, the presentation of the latest developments and trends, the proposal of new solutions, and, ultimately international collaborations.
