Eighteen review papers and twelve research papers are included in the Proceedings of the Mohan Malhotra Symposium on Concrete Technology: Past, Present, and Future. The purpose of the Symposium was to serve as a forum for discussion on the current state of the concrete industry and technology, and to identify important issues that need to be addressed in the future.

The proceedings of the Mohan Malhotra Symposium, which excel for the variety and richness of information contained in the 30 papers, reflect the respect and admiration of the authors for the honoree. As a researcher, scholar, and technology-transfer crusader, Mohan has undoubtedly made unique contributions to the concrete technology. It would indeed be a fitting tribute to him if the deliberations of the Mohan Malhotra Symposium are able to make a significant impact in preparing the concrete industry for the 21st century.
