XXIV Nordic Concrete Research Symposium

Welcome to the XXIV NORDIC CONCRETE RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM 17th to 20th august 2021! Information will come early in March 2021 due to the covid-19 situation

The organizing committee very much appreciates your commitment.

Revision of your abstracts and opportunities for new abstracts:
We do realize that we may loose some of the submitted contributions but hope that this will be more satisfactory to the majority than other options. At the same time, this enables additional contributions and modifications to the already submitted articles. All new articles must have a Nordic author or project affiliation. Late 2020 or early 2021, we will ask for reconfirmation of all submitted articles and provide new deadlines. Registration fees for 2021 are still pending and will also be communicated later.

Candidates NCR Best Paper Award 2021:
The Open Access journal Nordic Concrete Research (NCR) is an integral part of the Nordic Concrete Federation. The NCR Best Paper Award 2021 candidates will now also include articles published in the 2020 June and December issues. Authors who submitted abstracts to the Symposium may be invited by the editor to submit full NCR articles in the next NCR.
