5th International Conference on Polycarboxylate Superplasticizers

Dear participants of the conference,

the organizing committee likes to welcome you to the 5th International Conference on Polycarboxylate Superplasticizers (PCE 2024) from 24 to 26 September 2024 in Bangkok, Thailand!

The world of PCE technology is an exciting research area. Most recent technological breakthroughs in concrete technology originate from the invention of novel admixtures. Due to their extraordinary performance, polycarboxylate superplasticizers have contributed a lot to this and became the most commonly applied superplasticizer in the market.

We have opened a “Center for Advanced PCE Studies” at the Faculty of Chemistry, TUM on March 28, 2014.

On March 27, 2015, the 1st Symposium on Advanced PCE Studies was held at the Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS) at TUM. On September 27 – 28, 2017, the 2nd International Conference on Polycarboxylate Superplasticizers was held at TUM. Thereafter, On September 24 – 25, 2017, the 3rd International Conference on Polycarboxylate Superplasticizers took place in Munich. In these events, the leading global experts on PCE technology presented to the audience of numerous guests from many countries including Japan, China and Russia on this special day. Afterwards, we have received many good comments and encouragement to continue this conference which brings inspired people together to ensure that PCE technology remains at the cutting edge.

PCE 2024 will again offer a unique opportunity for the PCE community to discuss important developments, exchange new ideas, consider latest market trends and at the same time stimulate further exploration of the PCE technology. On one hand, participants can gain knowledge from scientific lectures while on the other hand PCE 2022 offers insights into practical aspect of PCE application.

Immerse yourself in the pulsating heart of Southeast Asia by joining us in Bangkok, a city where ancient traditions and modern marvels fuse to create a vibrant tapestry of cultural wonders. This enchanting metropolis invites you to explore its majestic temples, like the awe-inspiring Grand Palace and the serene Wat Pho, home to the reclining Buddha. Lose yourself in the kaleidoscopic chaos of the Chatuchak Weekend Market, a shopper’s paradise, and let the tantalizing aromas of street-side culinary delights lead you on an unforgettable gastronomic journey. As the city lights twinkle, Bangkok’s legendary nightlife awakens, offering everything from serene rooftop bars to electrifying nightclubs. Bangkok is not just a destination; it’s an experience that promises to captivate your senses, enrich your spirit, and leave you with memories to cherish forever. Join us in this dynamic city for a conference, and let Bangkok be the backdrop for innovation, inspiration, and unforgettable connections.

We now hope that you will enjoy the conference, that you can obtain many inspirations for your work and that you will have the chance to strengthen existing cooperations as well as to make a lot of new acquaintances.

Enjoy the conference!


Sincerely yours,

Prof. Johann Plank
