Professor Bent F. Sørensen
Technical University of Denmark, Denmark

Speech title: Will be annouced soon

Prof. Bent F. Sørensen is head of the section "Composites Analysis and Mechanics at the Department of Wind Energy, Technical University of Denmark. He got his MSc in 1988, his PhD in 1993 and obtained a Dr. Techn. degree in 2010, all from the Technical University of Denmark. He worked at the Materials Research Department of the former Risø National Laboratory from 1988 and transferred to DTU Wind Energy Department from 2012. From 2010 to 2017 he was overall centre leader for the Danish Centre for Composite Structures and Materials for Wind Turbines. His major research areas are fatigue and fracture and cohesive laws of composite materials and layered materials, dealing in particularly with theoretical and experimental research at the micro- and macroscale (micromechanics, crack bridging, mechanical properties of interfaces).

Professor Zhongwei Guan

Speech title: Failure analysis of fibre metal laminates subjected to impact and blast

Professor Zhongwe Guan is Executive Director of Advanced Materials Research Centre of Technology Innovation Institue in Abu Dhabi UAE. He is leading research groups on Energy Absorbing Materials and High Temperature Thermoplastic Materials. He has published more than 150 SCI papers in refereed international leading journals on composite structures, mechanical joints and polymeric structures. He is Chairman of the 5th International Conference on Computational Methods held in Cambridge in 2014. He is a member of Editorial Board of International Journal of Impact Engineering and International Journal of Applied Composite Materials. He has given more than 20 keynotes, thematic and plenary speeches in international conferences.

Professor Weimin Huang
School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Nanyang technological University, Singapore

Speech title: Vitrimer-like polymers and their applications

Dr Wei Min Huang has over 20 years of experience on various shape memory materials (alloy, polymer, composite and hybrid), he has published over 190 papers in journals, such as Accounts of Chemical Research, Advanced Drug Delivery Reviews, and Materials Today, and has been invited to review manuscripts from over 270 international journals (including Progress in Polymer Science, Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, and Advanced Functional Materials, etc), project proposals from American Chemical Society, Hong Kong Research Grants Council, etc, and book proposals from Springer, Elsevier and CRC. He has published two books (Thin film shape memory alloys – fundamentals and device applications, Polyurethane shape memory polymers) and is currently on the editorial board of over three dozen of journals.

Professor Guohua Xie
Wuhan University, China

Speech title: Will be annouced soon

Dr. Guohua Xie obtained his Ph.D. degree from Jilin University (China) in 2011, working on OLED microdisplays. From August 2011, Dr. Xie carried out his postdoctoral research at TU Dresden (Germany), sponsored by Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, investigating the stability of OLEDs. From January 2013 to January 2015, Dr. Xie worked for an OLED-based interdisciplinary project to treat skin cancer based on photodynamic therapy at the Organic Semiconductor Center of the University of St Andrews. Since January 2015, he has been serving as an associate professor at the College of Chemistry and Molecular Sciences of Wuhan University (China), focusing on the interdisciplinary research of solution-processed organic optoelectronic materials and devices. Dr. Xie has co-authored over 180 peer-reviewed publications with a H-index of 40 and contributed to two edited books on organic optoelectronics. In 2020, Dr. Xie has been admitted as a Fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry. Currently, Dr. Xie is a guest editor respectively for “Frontiers in Chemistry”, “Molecules” and “International Journal of Molecular Sciences”. Meanwhile, he also serves as a member of Youth Editorial Board respectively for “Chinese Journal of Luminescence”, “SmartMat” and “The Innovation”.
