This workshop aims to bring together experts in concrete materials characterization, mechanics, modeling, and design to critically discuss and develop concepts to address existing limitations, lack of knowledge, and future direction for improvement of concrete pavement analysis, design, and construction.

Workshop Background:

This workshop will be the second in a series of fundamental workshops sponsored by the International Society for Concrete Pavements (ISCP). The first in this series of workshops was held in Copper Mountain, Colorado, USA in August 2005. The theme of the 2008 workshop will be “Advanced Characterization, Modeling, and Design of Concrete Pavements”. All persons with interest in this theme are welcome to participate.

Workshop Format:

  • Every participant must submit a short abstract by March 1, 2008 to workshop organizers Jeff Roesler or Lev Khazanovich. Full papers are optional, but must be submitted by May 31, 2008 for peer review. Accepted papers will be published in the International Journal of Pavement Engineering.
  • Each participant will make a 10-minute presentation and lead a subsequent 10-minute group discussion on the topic.
  • There will be a two hour brainstorming/problem-solving session dealing with the interpretation of field data and modeling of concrete pavements. Each participant will take an active role in brainstorming sessions and should plan to bring their laptop.
  • At the end of the workshop, recommendations will be developed for presentation at the 9th International Conference on Concrete Pavements.


Potential attendees should contact the workshop organizers by January 31, 2008 with their intention to participate in this workshop. If you are planning to attend, please indicate whether you intend to bring your family to the Bay Area as well.
