3rd International Workshop Mechanisms and modelling of waste/cement interactions
May 6 - 8, 2013

Scope

The workshop “Mechanisms and modelling of waste/cement interactions” focuses on the chemical understanding and the thermodynamic modelling of the processes responsible for the stabilisation of hazardous and nuclear wastes in cementitious systems. As the very successful earlier meetings in this series of workshops (Meiringen, 2005; Le Croisic, 2008) the 3rd workshop will bring together world-leading and junior scientists from the different branches of the related research communities.

Although many research activities related to cement chemistry take place in connection with waste disposal, there is an ongoing need for close scientific contact to fundamental research on cement chemistry to assure state of the art research and to continue to promote national and international collaboration. As such, the workshop aims at bringing together researchers in the field of (i) cement chemistry, (ii) hazardous waste and (iii) radioactive waste.
