||Infrastructure materials are by far the most used and widespread materials in the world. New developments for these materials to be environmental friendly represent significant progress for either avoiding hazardous to human health and the environment, or reducing energy consumption and preserving natural resources during the manufacturing processes.
Keeping these critical aspects in view, this international symposium deals with bringing together scientists and engineers working on various aspects of Sustainable construction and building materials to discuss and exchange the latest developments.
Proceedings of the symposium will be published by The American Ceramic Society in the Ceramic Transaction series. The target audience for this symposium will be construction and building materials manufacturers, scientists, engineers, graduate students and technologists from the industries, national and corporate research laboratories, universities, etc.
Proposed session topics
- Cement and concrete
- Alternative cements and building materials
- Cement and concrete composites
- Ceramic additives for asphalt pavement
- Alkali-activated materials
- Green building materials
- Composites for buildings and infrastructure
||Planned: Other (journal publication, etc.; describe below)
