By establishing the International Conference on Building Materials ibausil in 1964, an international forum for the exchange of scientific views was created. One aim of the conference has always been to bring together science and building practice in Europe’s geographical centre.
This year from September 13 – 15, the 21st ibausil will take place in Weimar, Germany. In 1999, the city was crowned as Europe’s City of Culture. The city and its surroundings are famous for many sights and attractions. Weimar’s cultural heritage and contemporary art create an incomparable and unique flair for all participants of the conference.
As in the previous years, the main emphasis of the lectures is put on challenges of developing and applying building materials, accompanied by an exhibition of products and technologies. The conference languages are German and English.
Main topics of this year’s conference:
- Inorganic binders
- Concrete and durability of concrete
- Functionalisation of building materials
- Wall, ceiling and ground building materials
