Massive volumes of carbon emissions are tied to building materials and construction. The time for AEC professionals to talk carbon is now. Come to learn from leading-edge practitioners and researchers as they investigate the impacts and opportunities of materials and products, and share strategies for realizing carbon-thoughtful design. Leave with literacy on the issues of embodied carbon and implementable approaches for forward-looking practice.
This conference by the Boston Society of Architects/AIA is in partnership with Massachusetts Institute of Technology
As part of the II Scientific International Convention of Science, Technology and Society 2019 the First International Conference of Sustainable Production and Use of Cement and Concrete will take place. The conference goal is to present the most recent results of research and technological developments related with production and use of cement and concrete.
This workshop is focused on the study of accelerated carbonation of recycled aggregates in laboratory and under realistic industrial conditions: Fast and Natural carbonation of RCA (experimental results and modelling, including improvement of RCA) .
The construction industry has been under pressure to shift towards sustainability by manufacturing Portland cement in energy saving ways and developing alternative low-carbon cement and concrete technology. However, industrial applications are still scarce due to the gap existing between the fundamental research and industrial use as well as the lack of standards and a skilled work force in this area.
To address the aforementioned challenges, the first international conference on Innovation in Low-Carbon Cement and Concrete technology (ILCCC) will be held on the 24 – 26th June 2019 in London. The conference aims at exchanging the latest global scientific and technical achievements on low-carbon cement and concrete technology in order to promote their wide industrial applications.
The purpose of this international conference is to present the latest available scientific and technical information in the field of bio-based building materials, natural fibres, earthen ramped, innovative hybrid composites natural fibres, sustainable binders for sustainability and energy efficiency of buildings, life cycle analysis of bio-based building materials
The 8th International Congress on Sustainability Science & Engineering serves as the international platform for innovation in sustainability science and engineering.
Central Europe towards Sustainable Building Prague 2019 (CESB19) event will be a part of 2019 international Sustainable Built Environment conference series convened under auspices of the four international organizations: iiSBE, CIB, UNEP-SBCI, FIDIC and the Global Alliance for Building and Construction.
CESB19 will be the fifth conference in a row held in Prague on the actual topic of sustainable building (more on previous CESB conferences here). The city of Prague will again provide us a beautiful setting to meet and discuss the next challenges and opportunities of sustainable building. See you in Prague!
Kingston University London is hosting the fifth International Conference (SCMT5) as follow up from four successful events in Coventry, UK (2007), Ancona, Italy (2010), Kyoto, Japan (2013) and Las Vegas, USA (2016). The conference will be held on 15–17 July 2019, with a registration and welcome reception on 14 July 2019.
The conference will be run by our host, Professor Mukesh Limbachiya in partnership with Professor Esmaiel Ganjian and Professor Peter Claisse.
The main themes are:
- Efficient and Sustainable Use of Construction Materials
- Technological Advances for Sustainable Practice
- Designing Structures and Building for Sustainability
- Regulatory Framework and Government Initiatives
The conference aims to encourage the participation and commitment of students and experts/professions of coming/acting generation who proactively researches on sustainable built environmental related issues that are critically relevant to the mitigation of and the adaptation to the undergoing climate change.
It also aims to facilitate interactive dialogue to exchange of thought and practices among researchers, practitioners, and stakeholders, as well as to build up the interdisciplinary networks that enable holistic approach on a global scale. Respecting on the issues are significantly connected with the performance of cities in Asia, the organizer encourages the participation of counterparts and partners from Asian countries.
The building sector is by far the largest consumer of raw materials and producer of human-made materials. From a sustainability and circularity point of view, the effects of this demand can among others be mitigated using biogenic resources, smart material design, enhanced durability, functionalization, reuse and recycling, and the use of side streams (“waste”). The conference addresses this challenge starting from a scientific approach: building materials science being a syncretic discipline hybridizing mineralogy, ceramics, solid-state physics, chemistry, metallurgy and biology. Advanced characterization and treatment methods, together with novel technologies and modelling tools, are vital for the study and improvement of the complete life cycle of building materials, from raw materials, to production, use and recycling.
Following the success of the previous conference in Wuhan in 2015, we are pleased to announce the organization of the 2nd International Conference on Sustainable Building Materials, ICSBM 2019, in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
