The Changing Future of Cement & Concrete: Threat or Opportunity

ICT’s annual convention symposium at Loughborough University’s Imago Conference Centre

CONCRETE is a material that is capable of development in response to changes in design, demanded performance, environmental and sustainability issues, as well as social challenges. As a result concrete has changed, is changing and will change further in the future.

This Institute of Concrete Technology (ICT) symposium will bring together a range of issues that will affect and effect the future of concrete and those who are involved in its manufacture, provision and use.


Speakers include Dr Leon Black (University of Leeds) and John Gibbs (ERMCO) on twin drivers of carbon pricing and regulation; Prof. John Provis (University of Sheffield ), Prof. Peter Hewlett and Dr Martin Liska (David Ball Group) on alternatives to Portland cement; Ian Gibb (Mott McDonald) on changes in specification; and Martin Clarke on the new World Concrete Forum. In addition, Prof. Simon Austin will present the keynote lecture on 3-D printing, highlighting Loughborough’s state-of-the-art facilities.

The one-day event will take place at the Imago Conference Centre at Loughborough University on 27 March 2014, with the support of Elkem Silicon Materials. It will be a highlight of the ICT’s 42nd annual Convention, with its associated golf competition, annual members’ meeting and gala dinner. For a programme and registration form visit:
