The third Atlas Technical Conference for Accelerated Aging and Evaluation (ATCAE) will take place on September 15-16, 2008 in Oxford, England. The conference will focus on the automotive industry.

Speakers will present on weathering tests for interior and exterior materials, correlation and results of round robin tests. Automotive suppliers will concentrate on testing procedures for new materials as well as on the latest testing procedures for interior or exterior materials in order to meet the requirements of the OEMs. Atlas speakers will present new technologies for accelerated ageing tests on materials and components, as well as measurement techniques of relevant parameters, including important aspects for outdoor testing procedures. The conference is expected to provide insight into the newest results and the latest weathering technologies. Participants also will be offered the chance to visit the BMW manufacturing plant in Oxford.
