3rd International Conference on Sustainable Building Materials (ICSBM 2023)

About the conference

The building sector is by far the largest consumer of raw materials and producer of manmade materials. From a sustainability and circularity point of view, the effects of this demand can among others be mitigated using biogenic resources, smart material design, enhanced durability, functionalization, reuse and recycling, and the use of side streams (“waste”). The conference addresses this challenge starting from a scientific approach; building materials science being a syncretic discipline hybridizing mineralogy, ceramics, solid-state physics, chemistry, metallurgy and biology. Advanced characterization and treatment methods, together with novel technologies and modelling tools, are vital for the study and improvement of the complete life cycle of building materials, from raw materials, to production, use and recycling.

It is more important than ever before to accelerate innovation in cement and concrete sector and to improve the sustainability of building materials. The challenges in the design, characterization, performance and application of innovative and sustainable building materials are diverse and interdisciplinary. The primary goal of the conference is to address these challenges starting from a scientific approach, to present recent advances in research and application of sustainable building materials, and to provide further high-level platform for professional exchange of knowledge.

Following the success of the preceding conferences in Wuhan and Eindhoven, we are pleased to announce the organization of the 3rd International Conference on Sustainable Building Materials, ICSBM 2023, in Wuhan, China.

All abstracts will be peer-reviewed and evaluated based on quality, innovation, and relevance. Invited full papers will be recommended for publication on international journals and will be indexed by Web of Science (SCI).


Scientists and engineers are invited to submit abstracts and subsequently full papers to the conference in the scope of the following (non-exhaustive) list of topics:

  • Advances in cementitious binders: Carbonating binders, Carbon mineralization, Alkali activated materials, Geopolymer, Calcined clay cement, Magnesium Oxychloride Cement, Non-calcined cementitious binders, etc.
  • Waste recovery, treatments and valorizations: Processing, separating and recycling of building materials, Incineration ashes, Municipal solid waste incineration residues, Steel slags, Mine tailings, Supplementary cementitious materials, etc.
  • Alternative reinforcements for concrete structures: Basalt, Glass and Carbon fiber reinforced polymers, Plastic fiber reinforcement, aluminum alloy reinforcement, etc.
  • Functionalizing building materials: Nano-engineered, Self-healing, Self-cleaning, Self-compacting, Coated, Photocatalytic, Hydrophobic, etc.
  • Green products: Autoclaved aerated concrete, Lightweight concrete, Wood wool cement composites, Gypsum wallboards, Fired clay, Unconventional clays and aggregates, Alternative chemical admixtures, Low CO2 options for concrete, etc.
  • Bio-based materials: Biofibers, Biomineralization, Bacteria, Bio-aggregates, Biodeterioration, Bio-deposition, Agricultural and biorefinery residues, etc.
