The Engineering & Architecture Division and Natural & Formal Sciences Division of the Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER) organize A Panel on Sustainable Civil Engineering Materials, 20-23 June 2016, Athens, Greece as part of the Annual International Conference on Applied Engineering and Applied Science.

The aim of the panel is to bring together academics and researchers of all areas of Sustainable Civil Engineering Materials. Areas of interest include (but are not confined to):

  • Use of recycled and demolished materials in construction:  Recycled concrete, recycled brick, recycle rubble
  • Use of industrial by-products
  • Desulphurised waste residues in construction
  • Use of local materials
  • Rammed earth and similar products
  • Using novel materials as cement replacement: Calcined clay, metakaolin
  • Cementless concrete materials: Chemical activations, physical activation
  • Production of chemical admixtures derived from agriculture waste for concrete and other applications
  • Use of waste food to produce materials for construction materials

Fee structure information is available on

Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A Greek night of entertainment with dinner, a special one-day cruise to selected Greek islands, an archaeological tour of Athens and a one-day visit to Delphi. Details of the social program are available here.

Please submit an abstract (email only) to:, using the abstract submission form by the 18 April 2016 to: Dr. Jamal Khatib, Professor, Faculty of Science and Engineering, University of Wolverhampton, U.K. Abstracts should include the following: Title of Paper, Full Name (s), Affiliation, Current Position, an email address, and at least 3 keywords that best describe the subject of your submission. Decisions are reached within 4 weeks.

If you want to participate without presenting a paper, i.e. organize a panel (session, mini conference), chair a session, review papers to be included in the conference proceedings or books, contribute to the editing of a book, or any other contribution, please send an email  to Dr. Gregory T.

The association was established in 1995 as an independent world association of Academics and Researchers. Its mission is to act as a forum where Academics and Researchers from all over the world can meet in Athens, in order to exchange ideas on their research, and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.

The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER.  Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).

Academically, the Association is organized into seven Divisions and 37 Units.  Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.

Academics and Researchers are more than welcome to become members and to contribute to ATINER’s objectives. If you would like to become a member, please download the relevant form (membership form). For more information on how to become a member, please send an email to:
