A series of international CONFERENCES conducted by Coventry University, UK, and the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee Center for By-products Utilization, USA.
The SCMT website in Japan Conference themes, deadlines, registration fees and other information.
The third international conference (SCMT3) has been planned after the two successful events in Coventry, UK, in 2007, which had over 160 delegates, and Ancona, Italy, in 2010, which had over 270 delegates. These conferences were attended by government officials, engineers from government and private industry, engineering faculty and students, materials suppliers, construction companies, and others. While the first and second conferences highlighted current practice and research in sustainable construction materials, they also showed that more research and implementation work remains to be done in this area. Therefore, the third international conference has been planned for August 2013 to continue this technology transfer effort.
We are pleased to confirm sponsorship from: ACI, ASCE, CSCE, JCI and RILEM in addition to Coventry University and UWM.
SCMT3 will be held in Kyoto, Japan on August 18 - 22, 2013. Kyoto is the ancient capital of Japan with many historic and cultural attractions. The variety, historical span and sheer number of World Heritage Sites in Kyoto is unrivalled in the country and includes Nijo-jo Castle and sixteen temples and shrines. Please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyoto and http://www.kyoto.travel/. We are arranging sight-seeing and technical tours for delegates and accompanying persons. Typical August temperatures are 22-33 degrees C (71-91 degrees F). Kyoto is about 550 kilometres southwest from the nuclear power plant in Fukushima.
The conference will be run by our Japanese hosts. However Professor Tarun Naik firstname.lastname@example.org and Professor Peter Claisse email@example.com remain as permanent members and co-chairs of the International Organising Committee and will be happy to help if you have problems.
We have taken great care with the arrangements. Japan is an expensive country but the basic conference fee will only be 600 Euros. It is not customary in Japan to include lunches but we have been promised that these will be available for less than 10 pounds and the conference dinner will be around 100 Euros. A full printed copy of the proceedings will not be provided to every delegate but everybody will get a book of abstracts and a cd. Full printed copies will be available from a print on demand service which can get them delivered to your home so you don’t have to carry them back. As an example, please see create space book on sequestration. This book was distributed free to delegates at SCMT2 in 2010.
Abstracts of 200-300 words should be submitted by 27 July 2012. Click here for abstract submission. Earlier submission by 29 June is requested where possible.
A committee has been established for awards, whose sole function is to select manuscripts for awards. Up to 15 manuscripts will be selected for recognition at this international conference, SCMT3, in Japan. With an agreement already in-place, these award-winning papers will be reviewed by ASCE Journal of Material in Civil Engineering (ASCE-JMCE), USA. After following standard ASCE procedure for publication of manuscripts, they will be published in ASCE-JMCE. Such award-winning papers, from the Second International Conference on Sustainable Construction Materials and Technologies, Ancona, Italy, June 2010, (SCMT2), were published in by ASCE-JMCE in June 2011. Contact <firstname.lastname@example.org> for more information.
We also plan to publish papers in a special edition of a major UK journal. Details will be provided soon.
For SCMT3, a significant new idea is being introduced. It is a prize for the best innovative, novel, idea that would benefit from an industrial field trial. Typically this might be the use of a novel material in concrete, but it could involve any novel material or technology and the prize would be for the concept to be used for a trial by an industrial sponsor. We are seeking additional sponsors who would be prepared to help select the ideas and to host the trials in UK, EU countries, USA, Japan, or other countries. Contact email@example.com for details.
