Themed “Sustainable Concrete Development for the Present and the Future,” ACF 2016 is expected to draw the participation of 400 experts from 250 domestic and international organisations.

Concrete has become the most widely used building material throughout the world, with its increasing production. It is estimated that 35 billion tonnes of concrete are produced worldwide annually.

Therefore, the conference is a platform for participants to share experience and develop sustainable solutions to issues concerning concrete.

Presentations delivered at ACF 2016 will focus on research outcomes, practical solutions and academic exchanges on social issues, which were selected and approved by twenty science councils around the world.

Within the framework of the conference, participants will make field trips to major infrastructure works and new urban areas in Hanoi./.
