Impressions from HiPerMat 5


From March 11 - 13, 2020, the 5th HiPerMat conference took place at the Campus Center of the University of Kassel; an international symposium on UHPC and high-performance materials, which is organized every 4 years at the University of Kassel jointly by the Department of Structural Materials  and Construction Chemistry and the Department of Concrete Structures. Of the 190 participants registered, only 96 international guests were able to attend in person due to the just beginning corona pandemia. Nevertheless, HiPerMat 2020 offered an international scientific platform for the exchange of knowledge and ideas in the academic and industrial environment, as the lectures could be followed by all participants worldwide not only in the lecture hall, but also via live stream on the Internet. A total of 43 lectures and 12 posters were presented on the topics of load-bearing capacity, application, rheology, bridges, composite behaviour of proven performance, durability as well as ecological and economic optimisation of high-performance building materials.
