The International Conference on Advances in Construction Materials and Systems (ICACMS 2017) is part of the prestigious RILEM Annual Week, which is the annual meeting of the standing committees of RILEM (International Union of Testing and Research Laboratories for Materials and Structures). Such meetings occur every year in conjunction with a major international conference. The recent RILEM weeks were held in Copenhagen (2016), Melbourne (2015), São Paulo (2014), Paris (2013), Cape Town (2012), Hong Kong (2011).
The conference covers several themes related to construction materials and systems, with the objective of providing the state of the art coverage on cement and asphalt concrete, heritage materials, and building systems. The specific conference themes include: Advances in supplementary cementing materials, Concrete durability and performance specifications, Early age behaviour and rheology of cementitious systems,
Special concretes and applications, Advances in characterization of construction materials, Sustainable building systems, Bituminous binders and mixtures, Repair and conservation of heritage structures, Corrosion control and corrosion monitoring in concrete structures, Repair materials and repair systems for concrete structures. The themes selected for the conference are reflective of the scientific coverage provided by the different Technical Clusters within RILEM.
The 200+ papers received from academics and industry professionals from more than 50 countries across the world are assembled into 4 volumes. The first volume deals with the papers from the invited (keynote) speakers, while the remaining three volumes – arranged in appropriate sub-sections, deal with the specific themes of the conference. The onerous task of compilation of these papers into the four volumes was performed by our editing team comprising of students. The abstracts submitted for the conference were subjected to independent peer review by two experts from the international scientific committee, and subsequently, the selected papers were also thoroughly reviewed by the editing team followed by members from the scientific committee. The successful compilation of the proceedings is largely owing to the efforts of the editing team and the experts from the scientific committee.
The support by our sponsors and organizational partners has enabled us to put together the largest of its kind conference in India, and we are extremely thankful.
We wish you all a highly productive and engaging conference!
