The Canada Centre for Mineral and Energy Technology (CANMET) of Natural Resources of Canada, Ottawa, has played a significant role in Canada over 35 years in the broad area of concrete. In August 1997, CANMET in association with the American Concrete Institute and other organizations in Canada and New Zealand, sponsored the Third CANMET/ACI International Symposium on Advances in Concrete Technology in Auckland, New Zealand. The main purpose of the symposium was to bring together representatives from industry, universities, and government agencies to present the latest information in the subject area of the symposium, and to explore new areas of needed research and development. More than 50 papers from 15 countries were received and reviewed in accordance with the policies of the American Concrete Institute. Thirty-three of the papers were accepted for presentation and publication. In addition to the refered papers more than 20 other papers were presented and distributed at the symposium.
