The 4th Asian Concrete Federation (ACF) Symposium on Emerging Technologies for Structural Longevity (ACF2022- ETSL) will be held in Shenzhen, China on 27-29 November 2022. ACF2022- ETSL is the official conference series of the Asian Concrete Federation (ACF).

The Asian Concrete Federation (ACF) was officially established in 2004, as rapid growth in the Asian Region led to the generation of a tremendous amount of research and practical information, as well as the development and adoption of new technologies for concrete structures. Since its establishment in 2004, ACF has held international conferences every 2 years in various Asian countries. These conferences have served as a good venue for information exchange and other activities, such as technical meetings of related committees and social meetings of participants. During the 6th ACF Conference, held in Seoul, South Korea, in 2014, it was decided to organize an "ACF Symposium" in alternate years to the ACF Conference. The 1st ACF Symposium on “Ultra High Performance Concrete” was held in Kolkata, India (October 7, 2015), the 2nd ACF Symposium on “Innovations for Sustainable Concrete Infrastructures” was held in Chiang Mai, Thailand (November 23-25, 2017), and the 3rd ACF Symposium on “Assessment and Intervention of Existing Structures” was held in Sapporo, Japan (September 10-11, 2019).

The ACF2022- ETSL will be jointly hosted by the College of Civil and Transportation Engineering (CCTE) of Shenzhen University and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) of Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Following the well-established tradition of the ACF conference series, ACF2022- ETSL will provide an international forum for all concerned with sustainability of concrete infrastructure to exchange recent advances in both research and practice, and to strengthen international collaboration for the future development of the field.

It is planned that selected papers presented at the conference in revised and extended form will be published on a number of journal special issues.


Interested researchers are invited to submit proposals for mini-symposia on topics of special interest for approval by the International Organizing Committee.

Submission Topics

Concrete technologies have been developed rapidly over the past several decades and play a critical role in sustainable development of infrastructure. This symposium highlights emerging technologies throughout the service life of concrete infrastructures, from materials production, design, construction, maintenance to life-end strategies.  The following list of topics is not exhaustive, and all papers falling within the general scope of the conference will be considered:

  • Materials and products
  • Geopolymer and other low-carbon cement concrete
  • Artificial aggregate concrete
  • High-performance fiber-reinforced cementitious composites
  • 3D printing concrete
  • Sea-water sea-sand concrete
  • Ultra high performance concrete
  • Prefabricated/modular-integrated concrete construction
  • Inspection and quality assurance
  • Protection, repair and strengthening of concrete structures
  • Durability and life-cycle performance
  • Assessment of existing structures
  • Prediction of service life
  • Recycled concrete
  • Concrete using waste materials
  • Design codes/guidelines
  • Practical applications


Authors are invited to email abstracts of around 150 words by 31 January 2022 to: (Submission system is to be announced)
