2nd RILEM Spring Convention & International Conference on Sustainable Materials, Systems and Structures (SMSS2019)


SMSS2019 conference is organised as a supporting event of RILEM Spring Convention. The scope of the conference is to gather scientists, practitioners, members of technical committees and users of technical recommendations, to jointly at the same place discuss and envision the future sustainable development of materials, systems and structures in a holistic, global way.

To ensure that sustainability in civil engineering is tackled in a holistic way, conference is divided into several mini symposiums / segments, with each symposium targeting a specific field within SMSS. Having segmented efforts, with their specific chairs, topics, scientific committee and allocated time during the event, will enable a platform for a detailed and focussed discussion among interested parties on a specific segment of SMSS. Having all these segments discussed during the same week at the same (beautiful) location, will ensure their interconnection, knowledge exchange and will hopefully strengthen existing and create new networks for future collaboration.

Rovinj, Istria

Rovinj is a small city situated on the beautiful west coast of Istria, today considered as the most romantic place in the Mediterranean! Due to the lack of space, houses are closely built, streets are narrow and squares are small, still untouched by modern urbanism. One of the most ‘photogenic’ towns in the Mediterranean, once a fishing town, today is a tourist resort. Owing to the sea and what it has to offer, ranging from sailing to discovering the underwater world, its therapeutic properties, today Rovinj is the destination for tourists from all over the world. Not to mention, that there are 134 sunny days in a year, which makes Rovinj the third sunniest spot in the Adriatic.
