Sponsorship from International Professional Institutions: pleased to announce sponsorship from the Institution of Civil Engineers (UK), the Engineers Australia, the Canadian Society of Civil Engineers, the American Concrete Institute, and the American Masonry Society.
Response to-date: Conference has produced an excellent response, with offers from in-excess of 130 potentially very high-quality papers from around 30 countries so far and estimated attendance of over 160 delegates from all over the world.
The Organising Committee are confident that this will be a major exciting international gathering.
All papers will be peer reviewed by the Technical Committee members before acceptance of full paper. This is a substantial undertaking so the deadline of 1st of October to submit the paper is imperative.
The best ten papers of the conference judged by award committee of the SCMT6 will be sent for publication in the Institution of Civil Engineering Construction Materials journal (ICE Proceedings) and another ten best papers to Sustainability Journal's special issue on 'Green Innovations for Sustainable Development Goals Achievement'.
For conference registration please see the subpage Registration Fee Payment.
For paper format please see the subpage Paper's instructions for authors.
The paper should be e-mailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Paper's instructions are given in the subpage Paper's instructions for authors.
The official language of the conference is English.
