The Canada Centre for Mineral and Energy Technology (CANMET) of Natural Resources, Ottawa, Canada, has played a significant role in Canada for over 40 years in the area of durability of concrete. CANMET, in association with the American Concrete Institute and the Institute for Research in Construction/National Research Council, Ottawa, sponsored the First CANMET/ACI International Conference on Concrete Durability held in Atlanta, Georgia, April 27-May 1, 1987. The refereed proceedings of the Atlanta conference and Montreal conference (the Second CANMET/ACI International Conference on Concrete Durability, held August 4-9, 1991) were published as ACI SP-100 and ACI SP-126, respectively. Unlike the first conference, this second conference was not named after any individual(s), and the future conferences in this series would follow this precedent.

In 2006, CANMET, in association with several other organizations in Canada and the U.S., sponsored the Seventh CANMET/ACI International Conference on Durability of Concrete. The conference was held in Montreal, Canada, on May 28-June 3, 2006. More than 75 papers were peer reviewed in accordance with the policies of the American Concrete Institute. The proceedings of the conference, consisting of 50 refereed papers, were published by the American Concrete Institute as ACI SP-234.

In addition to the papers that have been published in the refereed proceedings, more than 50 other papers were presented at the conference. A number of these were published as supplementary papers in a special volume.

During the conference, special sessions were held on subjects with sulfate attack on concrete and high-performance lightweight concrete. Some of the papers related to these subjects were published in the supplementary volume.

Thanks are extended to more than 15 review panel members who met in Budapest, Hungary, in 2002 to review the papers. Without the dedicated efforts of the reviewers, it would not have been possible to have the proceedings ready for distribution at the conference. The cooperation of the authors in accepting reviewers’ suggestions and in revising their manuscripts accordingly is greatly appreciated. The authors are also to be commended for their prompt return of their finalized manuscripts.

The assistance of A. Bilodeau, Chair of the audio-visual review panel, is gratefully acknowledged. Thanks are also extended to P. Gupta and C. Mansfield-Joiner for their help in processing the manuscripts. The contributions of the ACI staff for their help in publishing the proceedings on time is also recognized.

As an integral part of the conference, a special symposium was held to honor Professor K. Sakata of Japan for his outstanding contributions in the broad area of concrete design and technology over the past 20 years. The proceedings of the symposium were published as a separate volume.
