11th HPC (High Performance Concrete) & 2nd CIC (Concrete Innovation Conference), Tromsø, Norway - From 06 March 2017 to 08 March 2017



Theme:

The 11th HPC will actually be the 30th Anniversary since the 1st HSC conference (forerunner of HPC) was held in Stavanger, Norway. The term HPC includes more than strength and denotes concrete that perform exceptionally well ranging from rheology in fresh state to durability both as material and in construction processes/structures. Esthetics and architectural expression is also part of this.

The 2nd CIC follows the success of the 1st CIC held in Oslo, Norway, in June 2014. The future needs expressed by the industry, the society, such as energy saving, reduced CO2‐emission, and resources use, efficient construction and higher performance to lower cost, are innovation drivers. The 2nd CIC themes will be based on this. To underline the importance of innovation, a contest will be organized to highlight the best innovation in several categories.


The two conferences will be overlapping with 11th HPC running 6-7 March and 2nd CIC running 7-8 March 2017. Delegates can participate at individual conferences or both.


Abstract deadline for either conference is 1st of May 2016

ICNF 2017 - 3rd International Conference on Natural Fibers, Braga, Portugal - From 21 June 2017 to 23 June 2017



Theme:

Natural fibres are a renewable resource, par excellence, having been renewed by nature and by humans for millennia. Recently, they have drawn tremendous attention of both scientific community and industrial sectors due to their abundance and low cost, good specific mechanical properties and environmental benefits. Tremendous growth in the use of non-renewable and non-biodegradable synthetic materials and associated emission of green-house gases is presently a big concern for the environment and future generations. In this context, the use of natural fibres, extracted from plants which absorb carbon dioxide and benefit the environment, seem to be highly attractive. In addition, processing of natural fibres generates wastes, which are mostly organic and can be used to generate electricity or green building, and at the end of its life cycle, they are 100% biodegradable.
Due to the increasing environmental concern and depletion of non-renewable resources, natural fibres are greatly enlarging its range of applications in different industrial sectors including automobiles, sports, architecture, design and many others. Consequently, extensive technological and scientific research and developments are being undertaken by various institutes around the world, turning these amazing materials into eco-friendly value added products and stepping towards a greener world.
The path of the revaluation of natural fibers goes through the improvement of its production sectors, the continuous deepening of scientific knowledge in this area, new marketing strategies and indelibly, the generation of products based on natural fibers.
Following up the great success of ICNF2013 and ICNF2015, covering the topics, “Sustainable materials for advanced applications” and “From nature to market”, ICNF2017 will focus on “Advanced Materials for a Greener World”, aiming to explore the potential of natural fibres to build a Greener World for the future generations. To fulfil this important goal, along with the scientific sessions, Natural Fibrenamics Award contest will be organized to promote and show new innovative natural fibre based products from all over the world.
ICNF2017 - Advanced Materials for a Greener World, to be held in Braga, Portugal, aims to be the meeting point for everyone interested in these fantastic materials called natural fibers.

The conference topics include:
New processes for natural fiber agriculture extraction and processing;
Natural fiber reinforced biopolymers;
Innovative natural fibers & structures;
Functional natural fibers;
Natural fiber modification techniques;
Advanced fibrous structures based on natural fibers;
Nanodimensional natural fibers;
Natural fiber based polymeric composites;

SHCC 4 - Strain-hardening cement-based composites, Dresden, Germany - From 18 September 2017 to 20 September 2017



Theme:

SHCC4 Conference is the follow-up of three previous successful international events in Stellenbosch (South Africa, 2005), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil, 2011) and Dordrecht (The Netherlands, 2014), all of them focusing on strain-hardening cement-based composites and other types of advanced fibre-reinforced concrete materials such as textile reinforced concrete (TRC) and high-performance fibre-reinforced cement-based composites (HPFRCC). All these new materials exhibit pseudo-ductile behavior resulting from the formation of multiple, fine cracks when subject to tensile loading. The use of such
types of fibre-reinforced concrete could revolutionise the planning, development, dimensioning, structural and architectural design, construction of new and strengthening and repair of existing buildings and structures in many areas of application.

Contributions to the conference are expected to cover the latest findings and research works related on SHCC, TRC and HPFRCC. They may be within – but are not limited to – the following topics:
- Material design and manufacturing;
- Mechanical properties and test methods;
- Structural design and performance.
- Durability design and performance;
- Computational methods;
- Use for strengthening and repair;
- Practical applications.
