Cement Calorimetry Conference
December 13 & 14, 2022
Welcome to the world of Cement Calorimetry
Prof. Thomas Matschei of RWTH Aachen, Institute of Building Materials Research,
along with Calmetrix is cordially inviting you to the:
5th European Cement Calorimetry Conference (ECCC)
Held on December 13 and 14, 2022 in Aachen, Germany.
Scope of the Conference
The objective of the conference is to bring together current and prospective users of isothermal calorimetry and share best practices. Participants will have the opportunity to see the latest trends in applications of isothermal calorimetry, but will also get a chance to interact and build knowledge through exchanges of ideas and opinions with other participants and world renowned specialists in the field.
December 13 & 14, 2022
See the PROGRAM page for more details on the Program and Schedule
Location and venue
The conference will take place in the beautiful medieval city of Aachen
on the grounds of RWTH University.
You will also have a chance to visit Aachen's beautiful Christmas market.
