Call for abstracts

RILEM TC 277-LHS Committee would like to invite you to participate in the workshop on "Lime based materials for repairing Historic Structures". The event will take place on 3-4 February 2022 in Thessaloniki, Greece.

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, all necessary adjustments will be made to meet health guidelines and virtual attendance is also available.

The scope of the workshop is to create an interactive forum with academics, researchers, professionals, other stakeholders for presenting the work done and have feedback from the real needs of practice. Unified and harmonized test procedures specific for lime-based repair materials are promoted for the upgrading of the quality of repair works and facilitating the market of these materials. Distinguished scientists will participate as invited speakers.

Objectives of the workshop:

1. Best practices in field applications

2. Regulative frames for testing quality/performance of lime-based materials (l-b-m)

3. Evolution in science and technology

4. Long term performance of repair with l-b-m

5. Retrofitting historic structures with l-b-m

6. Sustainability aspects. Learning from old technologies

The event is organized to give the attendants the opportunity to meet RILEM senior members in a relaxed and informal environment and to chat about their experiences in RILEM. A short (10-15 min) presentation will also be given to explain the mission of RILEM.

The core members of RILEM TC 277-LHS wish this workshop to be devoted to the memory of the distinguished members of the previous RILEM TCs who passed away: Prof. Luigia Binda, Polytecnico di Milano, Dr Eric F. Hansen, Getty Conservation Institute, Dr Thorborg Von Konow, Conservation Institute, Finland.
