The International Society for Concrete Pavements (ISCP) held its long-awaited 12th International Conference on Concrete Pavements (12th ICCP 2021) the week of September 27 through October 1 in a virtual setting. ACPA was a proud SPONSOR of the 12th ICCP, along with ACPA members Lehigh Hanson and CEMEX.
The conference featured 96 technical presentations, 10 half-day workshops, and The Student Pitch on a variety of concrete pavement topics. The conference was hosted using “The Aggregate” virtual platform allowing for both networking opportunities and tech transfer capabilities for attendees. In addition, the online format of the conference allowed participation from a record number of attendees across the globe with 698 registrants representing 31 countries.
As with past conferences, ISCP bestowed several best paper awards, including the “American Concrete Pavement Association’s Robert G. Packard Award for Design or Design Innovations for Concrete Pavement”, won by Christian and Orlando Rojas Torrico (Bolivia) for their paper “Determining the Influence of Concrete Drying Shrinkage in the International Roughness Index of Newly Constructed Rigid Pavements in Bolivian Altiplano“. Details about all award-winning papers can be found HERE.
Another highlight of the 12th Conference was the induction of 5 NEW HONORARY MEMBERS into ISCP, including Neeraj Buch (USA), Dale Harrington (USA), Bryan Perrie (SOUTH AFRICA), Ram Kanwar Jain (INDIA) and Carlos Jofré (SPAIN).
ACPA enjoyed strong representation at this conference, including podium presentations by Leif Wathne, Eric Ferrebee, Larry Scofield, and Dr. Mark Snyder, as well session moderating by Greg Dean, Todd LaTorella, Angela Folkestad, and John Becker. The CPTech Center was also well represented with presentations from Dr. Peter Taylor, Gordon Smith, and Dan King.
In early October, videos of technical podium sessions and workshop sessions will be uploaded to an outside host. For the full conference PROCEEDINGS of the 1st through the 11th ICCPs, please visit: https://12thiccp.concretepavements.org/past-conferences/.
