Once again a great many events will take place in the second half of 2012. Already early in September the XXIX Technical Congress of the Federación Interamericana del Cemento took place in Costa Rica. In the middle of September the world of building materials will meet in Weimar at the ibausil, in October the Construction Chemistry Congress of the German Chemical Society (GDCh) will be on the agenda, this time at the Empa (Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology) in Dübendorf/Switzerland. Various other events and tutorials will follow in the course of the year, among them the AUCBM Conference and Exhibition in Dubai in December as well as some interesting international events organized by drymix.info. ZKG INTERNATIONAL will be present at many of these events and will report for you from there. At the ibausil and the AUCBM Conference we will be represented with a stand. We are looking forward to your visit and would like to hand over to you your personal issue of ZKG. Let’s meet to have a discussion, for example, about a possible editorial cooperation or other cooperation opportunities.
