This symposium will focus on the recent research and developments in structural building materials with focus on cements and concrete. Certain examples are Ultra High Performance Concrete, textile and fiber reinforced concrete that more and more enter the level of realization. The symposia topic includes also research on the field of alternative cements for instance blended cements, alkali-activated cements or supersulphated cements.The organisers would like to invite researcher who are working in that field to present their recent findings relating to following aspects:-       concrete design for this structural materials-       special characterisation techniques and its findings related to this structural materials-       cement hydration and microstructure

-       modelling of cement hydration and concrete performance

-       durability and environment

The aim of the symposium is to bring together researchers who are working on various aspects of this topic and to intensify discussion between them.
