On behalf of the organising and technical committees, we cordially invite you to join us at Concrete 2015. Concrete 2015 will be the 27th Biennial National Conference of the Concrete Institute of Australia in conjunction with the 69th RILEM Week conference. This historic joint event will provide national delegates with valuable exposure to cutting edge research and development exchanges in the international forum of RILEM Week.
Concrete 2015 will focus on the theme Research into Practice. The conference is dedicated to bringing together global leaders in the concrete industry, covering all aspects of concrete design improvements, research, construction, maintenance and repair of concrete projects. Concrete 2015 will offer participants from around the world the opportunity to connect face to face and share innovative and interesting ideas on valuable research outcomes and latest construction practices. Papers are invited that are based on experimental work, research and development, practice or industry application, case studies, innovations and other relevant work of interest.
The multidisciplinary theme of Concrete 2015 provides an excellent forum for networking and education and an opportunity to meet and interact with practitioners, engineers, scientists, researchers, academics, practitioners and professionals, and also to engage with international delegates from RILEM technical committees. Whether you attend technical sessions, sit in on multiple committee meetings, or network with friends and colleagues this conference will provide you with ample opportunity for professional growth.
On behalf of the Organising Committee, we look forward to meeting you at Concrete 2015 in Melbourne, Australia.
The broad theme of the Conference is “Research into Practice”, covering materials, design, construction, performance and innovation and the research and development that support these areas. It will provide a forum for the sharing of ideas and experience through formal presentations, industry displays and informal contact between delegates.
