Welcome to Sandefjord:
Sandefjord is a nice, little town located at the western side of the Oslo fjord (120 km. from Oslo). It is well known for its whaling history, and the area also contains important Viking heritage sites. Sandefjord also presents first class seaside resorts and sea water swimming opportunities. Today, Sandefjord exhibits a modern combination of industry, shipping trade and agriculture.
Sandefjord is very well connected, with direct flight connection to Copenhagen and to several other national and international destinations, frequent train connection to Oslo and ferries to Strömstad (Sweden) and nearby ferry from Larvik to Hirtshals (Denmark).
The meeting venue is the same as in 2005 and offers very good facilities for lectures, concrete cafes and networking.

Excursions:
The organizing committee expects to propose subjects of professional or cultural interest in the area, enabling symposium attendants to take further advantage of their stay, before or after the symposium.

Organization:
The Organizing committee is a task group within the Research Committee of the Norwegian Concrete Association (NCA). NCA/Tekna (The Norwegian Society of Graduate Technical and Scientific Professionals) is the technical organizer.
The Scientific committee is the Research Committee of NCA.
The Research Committee of NCF (RCNCF) will supervise the organizing of the symposium.
