Event (June 2013)
The broad theme of the conference is 'Understanding Concrete,' covering materials, research, design, construction and innovation. The conference will provide a forum for the sharing of ideas and experience through formal presentations, industry displays and informal contact between delegates. It will be the concrete industry's pre-eminent technical and social event in the Southern Hemisphere for 2013. The Organising Committee encourages you to participate in the conference by attending, by presenting, displaying your product or service in the accompanying trade exhibition or by becoming a conference sponsor.

Concrete Show India Mumbai
13th -15th March, 2014
The Concrete Show India is the first of its kind of show in the country dedicated to the concrete industry. Concrete Show India serves as the business meeting networking forum for, the concrete supply chain, the building and construction industry and all such users of concrete. Concrete Show India 2014 will serve as a perfect platform for industry suppliers to showcase the best and newest technologies in machinery, equipment, commercial concrete products, services and systems. The first edition of the event in 2012 welcomed over 150 exhibitors from 13 countries and over 6000 business visitors.

Concrete Microscopy Course
24th-28th June, 2013
The concrete microscopy course will cover a host of themes like the history of microscopy, optical microscopy and basic mineralogy, cement chemistry - hydration, concrete durability and quality assessment, electron microscopy (ESEM), specimen preparation, image analysis and stereology and lastly, hands-on-deck practical sessions. This course is designed for those who would like to gain insight into concrete microscopy and microstructure. The idea is to introduce optical and electron microscopes as a research tool and present their advantages in characterising the cementitious materials. In addition to microscopy, specimen preparation, image analysis, techniques using photomicrographs for modelling and micromechanical characterisation (nano-indentation) are also covered. There is no prior experience with microscopy required for the course. The CMC is suitable for the civil engineering, material science, geosciences PhD students and industry professionals who are new to the microstructural aspects of cement and concrete.

Modelling of Localised Inelastic Deformation Prague, Czech Republic
16th -20th September, 2013
This course provides an overview of modelling approaches used in the mechanics of inelastic materials and structures, with special attention to the objective description of highly localized deformation modes such as cracks or shear bands. Last year it attracted 30 participants from 13 European countries and Canada. This year, the course is included among the RILEM educational courses. The main topics covered in the meeting include, elastoplasticity: physical motivation, basic equations in one dimension, extension to multi-axial stress, postulate of maximum plastic dissipation, associated and non associated plastic flow, hardening and softening, tangent stiffness, stress concentration around defects, asymptotic fields in the vicinity of a crack tip, local and global criteria for crack propagation, fracture toughness and fracture energy, nonlinear process zone and cohesive crack models.
