2018 (Shanghai) International Waterproofing Forum Call for Papers

The International Waterproofing Forum is a technical exchange forum held on the day before the opening of China International Roofing & Waterproofing Expo. The successful two sessions in 2016 and 2017 have welcomed professionals and experts from famous enterprises, institutes and organizations. The depth and width of the forum are widely recognized by industrial experts, scholars and technicians. As an important academic event integrated with the R&W Expo, the forum has become a grand gathering for information communication and technical exchanges.

Currently, China’s government has taken the “Quality Improvement” as its national strategy, which will be implemented by upgrading the quality of product, construction and service. Green construction and sustainable development will be the only way for the development of the building industry. The prefabricated building, sponge city, new type roof system, building energy conservation, and infrastructure such as rail transit, high-speed railway, high way, underground utility tunnel will be the investment priority in future China. Environment-friendly, durability and reliability has become an industrial consensus for research, production and application.

In order to build up an exchange platform for the 2018 forum within the whole industrial chain including raw materials, production equipment, manufacturing, design, application and assessment, we decide to call for technical papers in the whole roofing and waterproofing industry in and abroad. The details are as follows:
