6th International Workshop on Mechanisms and Modelling of Waste / Cement Interactions

Scope and background

The workshop “Mechanisms and Modelling of Waste/ Cement Interactions” focuses on the chemical understanding and the thermodynamic modelling of the processes responsible for the stabilization of hazardous and radioactive wastes in cementitious systems. Like the very successful earlier meetings in this series of workshops (Meiringen, 2005; Le Croisic, 2008; Ghent 2013; Murten, 2016; Karlsruhe, 2019), the 6th workshop intends to bring together world-leading and junior scientists from the different branches of the research communities.

Although many research activities related to cement chemistry take place in the waste management field, there is an ongoing need for close scientific contact to fundamental research on cement chemistry to assure state-of-the-art research and to continue to promote national and international collaboration.


The workshop aims at exchanging state-of-the-art knowledge on chemical and physical processes of waste/cement interactions.

– Cement Chemistry & Microstructure

Modelling, multiscale-approaches, alternative cements

– Cement/Rock/Soil Interfaces and Transport

Cement / host rock, transport processes and modelling

– Interaction of Cement with Waste Constituents

Radioactive waste, toxic waste, metal binding mechanisms, organic compounds

– Nanoscale Characterisation & Molecular Dynamics

Methods at large scale facilities, advanced methods

– Deterioration and Leaching

Alkali-aggregate reaction, carbonation, sulfate interaction, age­ing process, natural analogues

Call for papers

Abstracts: Authors are invited to submit a one-page abstract for oral and poster presentations until March 10th, 2023.
