Concrete Solutions Towards Carbon Neutral Construction by 2050

The 2020 Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) aims to gather the concrete specialists of tomorrow to envision and discuss the drastic shifts necessary for the cement and concrete technologies to meet such ambitious (but necessary) sustainability goals.

Graduate students, postdocs and young professionals are invited to present their contributions to the field, including their vision for the future of the industry. The call for abstracts is open to the different fields of cement and concrete science and technology: from novel binders with low-CO2 footprint and CO2 sequestering systems, to extending service life of concrete structures, including the recycling and optimal use of resources, the development of highly efficient concrete solutions for specific applications, the life-cycle assessment of these solutions, low-carbon design and construction methods and other out-of-the-box carbon-neutral approaches. The call for abstracts is open to the different fields of cement and concrete science and technology.

All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS, either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract. The seminar chairs will select speakers from abstracts submitted by November 22, 2019. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. Applications for this meeting must be submitted by January 25, 2020.
