Following the first International Conference on Concrete Repair, Rehabilitation and Retrofitting (ICCRRR 2005), ICCRRR2008 will again be held in Cape Town, South Africa. The conference will be organized and co-chaired by the University of Cape Town and the University of the Witwatersrand (South Africa) in conjunction with the University of Leipzig / MFPA Leipzig (Germany).

ICCRRR 2008 focuses on the increasingly important aspect in modern infrastructure provision and retention: that of appropriately repairing, maintaining, rehabilitating, and if necessary retrofitting existing infrastructure with a view to extending its life and maximising its economic return. ICCRRR is intended to bring together practicing engineers, scientists, specifiers, researchers and others from around the world to share knowledge and experience on current developments in concrete repair, rehabilitation and retrofitting, as well as structural performance and material durability.

The conference will run over 3 days and feature presentations by authors of all accepted papers, as well as keynote addresses by leading international experts. General and plenary sessions will be accompanied by workshops, technical sessions and exhibitions. The language of communication will be English. A detailed list of conference themes is presented below.

CCRRR also aims to identify and deliberate on emerging research and development needs unique to concrete products and structures. The exchange of international knowledge and expertise is expected to result in the development of improved design and implementation methodologies for concrete repair, rehabilitation and retrofitting.

The aim of the joint effort between two of the leading universities in South Africa and the University of Leipzig / MFPA Leipzig, Germany, is to raise the level of awareness on the latest developments in repair and rehabilitation technologies, practice, and research, for the benefit of local and international participants. This continent-bridging conference is further expected to strengthen relationships not only between Africa and Europe but also between countries and regions from all over the world.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
