International Workshop on Calcium Sulfoaluminate Cements, 4-6 June 2018, Murten, Switzerland


Please find the first announcement of the workshop here.



Calcium sulfoaluminate cements are receiving increasing interest as an environmentally friendly alternative to Portland cement and as they can be used to formulate mortars and concretes with special properties such as fast setting, high early strength or shrinkage-compensation. Thus in the recent years the number of publications in this field increased rapidly, and new products came on the market.

This workshop aims at exchanging state-of-the-art knowledge regarding production, hydration, properties, durability and application of calcium sulfoaluminate cements. Gathering experts from all around the world will stimulate scientific discussions and can promote national and international collaboration.
