As an experienced scholar, Prof. Sun Wei has been engaged in the teaching and scientific research in Southeast University China, right after her graduation from Nanjing Institute of Technology in 1958. During her 50-year teaching and research, she has brought up more than 50 masters, over 40 doctors. Professor was the dean of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Southeast University, the deputy editor-in-chief of Journal of the Chinese Ceramic Society. She was selected as a Chinese Academy of Engineering in 2005. At this moment, she is the director of institute of fiber reinforced concrete and the director of the Jiangsu key lab for construction materials. Together with 20 of her team members, professor Sun is still very active in research and teaching on engineering cementitious materials. With her team, she has undertaken successfully for about 40 important national or international projects and published about 350 papers.
With the opportunity of the International Conference on Microstructure Related Durability of Cementitious Composites held in Nanjing this October, we would like to organize a half-day workshop for celebrating her 50th year’s great contribution and achievement in teaching and research. The papers presented in the workshop will be published as a special issue.
