Pleased to announce 3rd R N Raikar Memorial International Conference & Gettu-Kodur International Symposium on ADVANCES IN SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY OF CONCRETE!

We are pleased to invite you to the 3rd R N Raikar Memorial International Conference. The mission is to introduce the participants to cutting edge technologies in the field of concrete and concrete construction and to facilitate technology transfer in appropriate areas. A galaxy of foreign experts will enlighten the audience.

Two towering personalities, Prof. Ravindra Gettu and Prof. Venkatesh Kodur will be felicitated by convening an international symposium in their honour.

ACI is graciously co-hosting this international event and a host of other international technical bodies have offered their support. Technical papers submitted by various participating countries at the last conference were evaluated by a worldwide editorial board for inclusion in the prestigious International journal of Construction Building Materials (UK) and Alconpat Revista (Latin America). This feature was the first of its kind for a conference organised in India, and ICACI is endeavouring to repeat it for the forthcoming R N Raikar conference. Mr. M. A. Jacob and Mr. Umesh Magar, Co-Chairs of the conference, along with Conference Mentors Prof. P. A. M. Basheer and Prof. Nemkumar Banthia join us in inviting you to this technical extravaganza.
