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 was planned to be held on 23rd to 25th of June 2021 in Hong Kong. However, these dates are not possible due to unforeseen issues related to COVID19-virus. New dates will be decided during this year when hopefully the corona situation settles. Meanwhile, we hope you all stay safe and healthy, and best of luck during these exceptional times.
