This conference comes after the successful experiences in Lyngby 2010 and in Dresden 2014. The purpose of this event is to bring together the research community in the field of SAP and other modern admixtures to share knowledge and ideas.


 


This is a RILEM event. Many amongst the organisers, the key-note speakers and the scientific committee are RILEM members of the TC 260-RSC "Recommendations for use of superabsorbent polymers in concrete construction".
