Dear Colleagues,

As the local organizing committee, we are pleased to invite you to the Boğaziçi University/Istanbul, Turkey, for an International conference focusing on "Cement - Based Materials Tailored for a Sustainable Future”. This conference aims to gather researchers and industrial experts from around the world who specialize on cement-based materials to share and spread knowledge in an effort to increase awareness on the importance of the sustainable cementitious systems. The conference will be co-sponsored by Boğaziçi University, RILEM, ACI, ERMCO, TRMCA and Özyeğin University.

During this conference we will be happy to honour two distinguished professors of Civil Engineering – Prof. Surendra P. Shah and Prof. Turan Özturan - who have made immense contributions to the development of knowledge in the area of Construction Materials both in their countries and throughout the world.

The scientific programme will cover several aspects of sustainable material systems and we hope to share cutting edge research in the field and have enlightening discussions that will bring us a step closer to a sustainable future.

The visitors will also have a chance to experience Istanbul which is as one of the most fascinating cities in the world and accommodates history and culture coming from many different civilizations dating back to 3000 years. We are looking forward to meet all of you in Istanbul in 2021 to connect, share and learn from each other.

Conference Chair
