Science and technology of building materials for sustainable development

October 31st - November 2nd, 2019, Hanoi, Vietnam


Welcome to International Conference on Building Materials – Hanoi 2019 (ICBM 2019)


Building materials play key roles in construction of infrastructures, houses, buildings and all types of other construction works. Manufacturing industry and trade of building materials influence the national as well as the global economy, the environment and the societies.

Currently, Vietnam is one of the countries having the largest production of building materials in the world. In 2018, the production capacities of main building materials are nearly 100 million tons of cement, 706 million m2 ceramic tiles, 16 million sanitary ware products, 260 million m2 glass products, 18 billion fired clay bricks, 8 billion unfired cement-based blocks, 200.000 tons of refractory products, 250 million litres of paints, etc. The cement and ceramic production sectors have the fourth largest outputs in the world.

The development of building materials definitely require the application of science and technologies to minimize using natural minerals, maximize using industrial by-products, save energy, protect environment and create more sustainable building material products.

This is our honour and great pleasure to invite you to the International Conference on Building Materials (ICBM) “Science and technology of building materials for sustainable development” which will be held from 31 October to 02 November 2019 in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The main conference’s themes include: cement, concrete, refractory materials, fire-resistant materials, paints, glass, product quality testing methods, environmental protection and recycling wastes in building material industry. The conference is a diversified-topics forum for international and Vietnamese researchers, academics, industry professionals, experts and policy makers etc. to share their views, and to learn from others about recent and current developments in science and technology of building materials for sustainable development and also to discuss actions required for forthcoming building materials as well as construction development in the future.

The conference is organized by Vietnam Institute for Building Materials (VIBM) and under the auspices of the Ministry of Construction of Vietnam. This conference is also the formal event linked with the Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of VIBM’s Establishment.

Participating in ICBM, you will not only acquire useful updated information about the ongoing experiences and development trends of building materials for now and the future, but also have the opportunity to visit the economic, cultural and political capital Hanoi and other beautiful areas of Vietnam.

We do look forward to welcoming you in Hanoi this October and to having your presence at the ICBM2019
