SPECIAL SESSION AND SPECIAL ISSUE ANNOUNCEMENT
The Programme Committee is now soliciting the submission of papers to be included in a specific session on Sustainable management of secondary raw materials.
The special topic aims at providing advances to the state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice in reuse of waste materials in construction industry.
In general, manuscripts selected for the session, will reflect original research and technological advances on topics that include, but are not limited to the behavior, analysis, testing, design, construction, and regulations of construction and building materials and structures using:
1) recycled aggregates coming from construction and demolition waste (C&DW);
2) fly ash, rice husk ash, bottom ash and other supplementary cementing materials (SCMs);
3) slags and manufactured aggregates;
4) geopolymers and inorganic polymers;
5) and other waste aimed at enhancing the environmental sustainability of ordinary construction materials.
Although the deadline for abstract submission to the conference has already officially expired, the articles on the above-mentioned subject will still be reviewed. Should this be of interest to you, please send your contribution no later than 21st August. Articles should be prepared using the template provided and submitted using the online submission form. Contributions in the form of short papers (3-4 pages) will also be accepted.
Authors of selected leading papers from the event will be invited to submit extended versions of their manuscript for possible publication in the “Journal of Sustainable Cement-based Materials” edited by Taylor and Francis Group and indexed in Scopus.
Journal of Sustainable Cement-Based Materials
The Journal aims to publish theoretical and applied researches on materials, products and structures that incorporate cement. The journal is a forum for discussion of research on manufacture, hydration and performance of cement-based materials; novel experimental techniques; the latest analytical and modelling methods; the examination and the diagnosis of real cement and concrete structures; and the potential for improved cement-based materials. Journal of Sustainable Cement-Based Materials is now indexed in: Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) / Scopus / Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS).
