Targeting all fields of the chemistry of construction materials

The International Conference on the Chemistry of Construction Materials in 2013 aims at providing an inspiring forum for scientists from universities, research facilities and industry to present results, to discuss and to focus on the forthcoming challenges. Interdisciplinary presentations in all fields of construction materials science will show the many different perspectives of the topic.

The conference will follow the successful format of the ­previous national meetings with a broad subject area covering all fields of the chemistry of construction materials. Researchers from universities and industry are welcome to give presentations. The conference topics include:

Sustainable construction materials

Dry-mix mortar technologies

Adhesives, sealants and coatings – chemistry & application

Chemical admixtures – ­innovation & application

Surface functionalization – macro & micro

Nanostructured construction materials

Construction materials and health

Mechanical properties and durability

Analytical and mechanical methods


Deadline for lectures and poster presentations is the 15.01.2013. The Chemistry of Construction Materials Division awards a limited number of scholarships to PhD students and other research fellows who are members of the Chemistry of Construction Materials Division. An active contribution (lectures or poster) to the conference is required. Applications have to be submitted by 01.07.2013.
