The Eighth International RILEM Symposium on Self-Compacting Concrete and the Sixth North-American Conference on the Design and Use of Self-Consolidating Concrete, held on May 15-18, 2016 in Washington, D.C. Nearly 120 papers are presented during three parallel sessions in addition to 35 papers discussed during the poster session at the conference. The main purpose of this conference was to bring researchers and practitioners together to exchange the latest knowledge and tools used in building sustainable concrete structures with SCC.

The RILEM series of symposia started in 1999 in Stockholm, followed by Tokyo in 2001, Reykjavik in 2003, Chicago in 2005, Ghent in 2007, Montreal in 2010, and Paris in 2013 with a steadily increasing number of papers, participants and interest from across the globe.

We would like to greatly acknowledge all the authors for sharing their expertise and knowledge as well as our sponsors for their support. Special thanks go to the Honorary Advisory Committee, the Steering Committee, and the International Technical, as well as the Scientific Committee for their diligent work in bringing this conference to success!
