About

International Congress of Polymers in Concrete (ICPIC) is an international forum that has been taking place every three years for the last 40 years with the objective of following progress in the field of polymers and their use in concrete and construction. ICPIC has been the leading congress worldwide in the interactive fields on polymers in concrete for more than 40 years. Following 15 successful congresses which were held in London (1975), Austin (1978), Koriyama (1981), Darmstadt (1984), Brighton (1987), Shanghai (1990), Moscow (1992), Oostende (1995), Bologna (1998), Honolulu (2001), Berlin (2004), Chuncheon (2007), Funchal (2010), Shanghai (2013), and Singapore (2015).


ICPIC2018 will take place in the Willard Intercontinental, Washington D.C. USA, from April 29th to May 1st, 2018


ICPIC 2018 conference will be held under the theme “Polymers for Resilient and Sustainable Concrete Infrastructure”. The conference will provide the opportunity to researchers and specialists working in the fields of polymers to exchange ideas and follow the latest progress in the use of polymers in concrete infrastructure.

Objectives

• To create an opportunity for scientists, researchers, chemists, engineers and construction specialists working in this field of polymers in concrete to discuss and learn and stay up to date

• To showcase the use of polymers and polymer concrete in sustainable and resilient development

• To enable exchange of knowledge and ability to network for industry experts, researchers, scientists, academics, students, engineers and practitioners

• To create a forum for researchers to present their latest research results, ideas and experiences, as well as to discuss critical challenges and effective solutions for using polymer concrete

• To provide a platform for local and overseas suppliers, developers, manufacturers and contractors using polymers, polymer concrete and polymer composites in concrete structures to develop new business opportunities
