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: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
