SAMPE Conference Paper & Poster Presentations

Every year Dr. Tate encourages and gives opportunity to his research students to present their current research work in SAMPE conference. SAMPE is the biggest conference devoted to composite materials (advanced, natural, nano-composites etc.). SAMPE is very active in supporting student participation in research. They offer a ‘University Research Program’ where student compete for getting slot for research presentation in regular conference. Following is list of the students who presented their research work in SAMPE conferences.
