The American Concrete Institute-aligned SDC will examine concrete issues and technologies unique to or common in infrastructure and building communities during its Technology Forum #34, September 5-6 at the Omni Severin Hotel, Indianapolis.

The meeting will feature representatives from the Federal Highway Administration, Federal Aviation Administration, state departments of transportation and research centers highlighting engineering and practice advances in their areas. With an eye to eliminating duplication of effort, they also plan to foster discussion on coordinating research, education and certification activities.

In addition, SDC is seeking “Technology Showcases” to highlight during future spring or fall forums. Presentations allow companies or individuals the opportunity to showcase new innovations offering the potential to improve and advance the concrete industry. Each new technology introduced at SDC gains exposure and, potentially, assistance to address barriers and obstacles that are preventing or slowing industry acceptance or adoption. Additional information on the forum and showcases can be obtained at www.concretesdc.org.
