The deadline for submitting abstracts for the 2015 International Concrete Sustainability Conference is this upcoming Friday, November 14. The 10th annual conference, scheduled for May 11-13 at the Intercontinental Miami Hotel, will provide learning and networking opportunities on the latest advances, technical knowledge, continuing research, tools and solutions for sustainable concrete design, manufacturing and construction. Engineers, architects, public works officials, risk managers, material suppliers, researchers, academics, students, contractors, and concrete industry professionals are invited to share their experiences and accomplishments in advancing sustainable development. Proposals for papers and/or presentations are encouraged on:

• Resilience;
• Life Cycle Assessment;
• Low Impact Development;
• Material Science; and
• Social Responsibility.

As in the past, all topics will be considered. However, since the conference is in Miami, one of the largest cities in North America that will be affected by climate change, the emphasis will be placed on proposals that address disaster resilience and durability as a way to help mitigate the devastating effects of natural and man made hazards, including hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, fires, earthquakes and blast.

Abstracts can be submitted online at by November 14. For more information, contact Lionel Lemay at or 847-918-7101.
