Fall, 2020, IAB Meeting will be held virtually
Tuesday, October 27

As we plan our 2020 CoMFRE Annual Meeting, we are unsure what the fall will bring. Even if things open up, we are sure there will be uneasiness in travel. Because of the uncertainties, we are planning to have a virtual annual meeting, where the goal is to provide our member companies an update on CoMFRE and the CoMFRE-supported projects. Only member companies and affiliated faculty will be invited. Here are the details:
What: 2020 CoMFRE Annual Meeting
Where: Virtual through WebEx; invitation only
When: Tuesday, October 27, 2020, 9 am – noon central time

Annual CoMFRE Symposium and IAB Meeting
October 28-29, 2019

The 2019 CoMFRE Symposium and Member Meeting was held Monday-Tuesday, October 28-29, at the ISU Alumni Center in Ames, IA. Industry members met in a closed meeting on Monday afternoon to receive updates on shared research and meet with CoMFRE faculty and students to discuss future research and goals for the center. The remainder of the meeting was open to invited guests as well as CoMFRE members. The open meeting began with a student poster contest, reception and dinner at 6 pm on October 28 and ended mid-afternoon on Tuesday. In addition to presentations and a poster session, the meeting provided opportunities for networking and interaction among industry representatives, faculty, graduate students and postdocs.

Links to posters and presentations are provided in the documents below. Note that many of the PowerPoint presentations (linked in the Agenda) contain animations; we recommend downloading and viewing them in slide show mode.
