WASCON (The International Conference on the Environmental and Technical Implications of Construction with Alternative Materials) has been held every three years since 1991 and provides a forum for exchange of ideas and current research nationally and internationally on the use of waste, industrial by-products and other recycled materials in construction. An important scientific base for the implementation of alternative materials is given by the numerous contributions to the WASCON conferences.
In addition to our regular WASCON conferences, ISCOWA is also interested in organizing other seminars and conferences related to our field of interest. In case you have a good idea, please do not hesitate to contact us via our contact form!
The next WASCON conference will be held in 13-16 December 2023 in Hong Kong.
Abstract submission is now open. Please check the event website for more details, and submit your abstract by latest 31st of March 2023. We look forward seeing your contribution to our conference.
