Special Issue "Environment-Friendly Construction Materials"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 February 2019
The 1st International Conference on Sustainable Mega Infrastructures (SMI 2018) and the 3rd International Conference on Sustainable Construction Materials: Design, Performance and Application (SCM2018) will be held in Hohehot City, Inner Mongolia, China, on 10-11 August 2018. This conference is sponsored by the Wuhan University of Technology (WUT), the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the University of Alabama.
The SCM conferences have been a successful and a longstanding event since 2010, which bring together academic researchers and civil engineers from the world to promote technological achievement in sustainable construction materials. SMI2018 and SCM2018 will once again provide a unique opportunity to discuss the strategies and challenges related to the planning, execution and use of mega infrastructures, as well as sustainable construction materials. The scope of SMI2018 and SCM2018 will include, but is not limited to, cementitious paving materials, bituminous paving materials, recycled materials, waste materials, and so on.
The SMI2018 and SCM2018 will prepare diverse programs, including a plenary/keynote sessions, oral/poster sessions, exhibitions, and social events. This Special Issue was proposed based on the productive abstract submissions. Participants at SMI2018 and SCM2018 are highly encouraged to submit papers in this Special Issue for possible publication in Materials. Authors who would not attend the SMI2018 and SCM2018 conference are also warmly invited to submit a paper for this Special Issue.
