Advanced construction materials, such as self-compacting concrete, tile adhesives and modified bitumen have strongly benefited from transversal knowledge exchange between various disciplines in the last decades. As a result, the level of science and technology needed to understand and carry out diligent mix design and processing of these materials has tremendously increased. Further advances will surely follow from on-going exchanges between scientific communities.

It was therefore our pleasure to organize the 1st International RILEM Conference on Rheology and Processing of Construction Materials along with the 7th RILEM Conference on Self-Compacting Concrete.

From a material point of view, these two joined RILEM conferences deal with a variety of construction materials, including concrete, mortar, grouts, renders, plasters, bitumen, paints or adhesives... In particular, a wide set of works concerning the rheology, design and processing of self-compacting concrete are included in this book.

We received more than 280 abstracts, among which 48 papers were selected and anonymously reviewed to produce this book.

The scientific committee of the 1st RILEM conference on rheology and processing of construction materials and of the 7th RILEM international conference on self-compacting concrete was chaired by Philippe Coussot and Kamal Khayat. It gathers the following experts from academia and industry:

Christophe Lanos, INSA Rennes
Didier Lesueur, Lhoist
Didier Lootens, Sika
Francois de Larrard, Lafarge
Guillaume Ovarlez, Univ. Paris-Est
Henri Van Damme, IFSTTAR
Jan Vermant, KU Leuven
Jean Eric Poirier, Colas
Matthieu Joanicot, Saint-Gobain
Phil Banfill, Heriot-Watt Univ.
Robert Flatt, ETH Zurich
Sofiane Amziane, Polytech', Clermont-Ferrand

Papers dealing specifically with Self Compacting Concretes were reviewed by the members of the RILEM technical committee "Mechanical properties of self- compacting concrete" under the supervision of its chairman, Prof. Kamal Khayat.
