SP235 The Canadian Centre for Mineral and Energy Technology (CANMET) of Natural Resources Canada, Ottawa, Canada, has played a significant role in Canada for over 40 years in the broad area of concrete technology. In recent years, CANMET has become increasingly involved in research and development dealing with supplementary cementing materials, high-performance normalweight and lightweight concretes, and alkali-aggregate reactions. In May 2006, CANMET, in association with the American Concrete Institute and several organizations in Canada and the U.S.A., sponsored the Eighth CANMET/ACI International Conference on Recent Advances in Concrete Technology in Montreal, Canada. The proceedings of the conference consisting of 17 refereed papers, were published as ACI SP-235. In addition to the refereed papers, more than 20 other papers were presented and distributed at the conference. During the conference, a special symposium was held in honor of retired Professor Marc-André Berubé of Laval University, Quebec City, Canada, for his outstanding and sustained contribution in the broad areas of alkali-aggregate reactivity. The proceedings of this symposium, consisting of more than 20 papers, have been published as a separate publication by CANMET. Thanks are extended to the members of the CANMET/ACI paper review panel who met in Budapest, Hungary, in May 2005 to review the papers. Without their prompt review and constructive comments, it would not have been possible to bring out the ACI special publication for distribution at the conference in Montreal. The cooperation of the authors in accepting reviewers’ suggestions and in revising their manuscripts accordingly is greatly appreciated. Particular thanks are extended to Dr. Pawan Gupta, G.D. Brearley, and Colleen Mansfield-Joiner for their help in the processing of draft manuscripts.
