Abstract: RILEM International Conference on Sustainable Materials, Systems and Structures (SMSS
2019) is a conference organised by Faculty of Civil Engineering University of Zagreb as a
supporting event of RILEM Spring Convention from in Rovinj, Croatia. Both are organised in

the year Faculty of Civil Engineering in Zagreb is celebrating 100 years from its establish-
ment, making 2019 a perfect year for hosting such an important international event. The scope

of the conference was to gather scientists, practitioners, members of technical committees and

users of technical recommendations, to jointly at the same place discuss and envision the fu-
ture sustainable development of materials, systems and structures in a holistic, global way.

SMSS 2019 conference has gathered participants from 50 countries, from Argentina to United
States of America, who will exhibit a total of 290 papers. The conference was sponsored by
10 international industrial partners, supported by 6 international organisations of scientists and

practitioners and organised under the patronage of 4 governmental bodies. A total of 450 con-
tributions which arrived was reviewed by more than 150 prominent reviewers from different

fields. Event was organised by 16 members of the local organising committee and 6 invited
international members of organising committee.
As part of the RILEM SMSS 2019 conference, the PhD SYMPOSIUM segment is organized

as a separate international segment with the aim of presenting doctoral students and their sci-
entific research. The PhD SYMPOSIUM segment created a professional platform for excellent

PhD students to discuss their scientific developments with established experts and to found a
network of young scientists of various countries in order to exchange knowledge and promote
scientific goals. Contributions from any field of sustainability and construction science and
engineering in this segment are exclusively offered to PhD students whereby the inherent high
standards of the scientific contributions were ensured by a review of international experts. The
PhD SYMPOSIUM segment provided a great opportunity to present and showcase ongoing
research in front of an audience of peers, key representatives and main experts in the field of

materials, structures, energy efficiency and methods for characterization at material and struc-
tural scale.

The PhD SYMPOSIUM segment of the RILEM SMSS 2019 conference has consisted of 28
extended abstract where young researches presented their research and its contribution in 3

minutes. Since the preparation and publication of scientific research is crucial for the ad-
vancement of science and for the recognisability of scientists and scientific institutions, work-
shop „Publishing Scientific Research“ was organized as a part of this segment.

Editors wish to thank the authors for their efforts at producing and delivering papers of high
standard. We are sure that this Proceedings will be a valued reference of research topics in this
important field and that it will together with the other volumes from SMSS conference form a
suitable base for discussion and suggestions for future development and research.
