Announcing the 2016 International Concrete Conference Sponsored by


The 2016 conference will address the many diverse aspects of concrete technology including materials, sustainability, techniques, research and development, design, practice and economics. Papers will be drawn from all over the world bringing together many disciplines, reflecting concrete’s importance, versatility and adaptability.

As in previous events in Dundee, the conference will give opportunity to learn about the latest materials developments and understanding, to network and make contacts with experts and practitioners from around the world. Presentations of current trends and developments coupled with critical discussion and debate together with social interactions are the hallmark of the conference. It will appeal and be relevant to all who are involved with concrete, be it a provider, user, researcher, designer, contractor or student.

Make a note of the date in your diary and we look forward to welcoming you to Dundee and to our beautiful country and its heritage.

Professor Rod Jones
Chairman of the Conference Organising Committee
