Thirteenth International Conference on

Superplasticizers and Other Chemical Admixtures in Concrete

November 1-3, 2021 – Milan, Italy


The first and second CANMET/ACI International Conference on Superplasticizer in Concrete were held in Ottawa, Canada in 1978 e 1981. The third CANMET/ACI International Conference on Superplasticizers and Other Chemical Admixtures in Concrete was also held in Ottawa, Canada in 1989.

This was followed by the fourth conference in Montreal, Canada in 1994, the fifth in Rome, Italy in 1997, the sixth in Nice, France 2000, the seventh in Berlin, Germany in 2003, the eighth in Sorrento, Italy in 2006, the ninth in Seville, Spain in 2009, the tenth in Prague, Czech Republic in 2012, the eleventh in Ottawa, Canada in 2015 and the twelfth in Beijin, China in 2018.
