Dear Participant,

The Organizing Committee of MATBUD’2018 announces with pleasure the forthcoming 8th Scientific-Technical Conference on Material Problems in Civil Engineering to be held in Cracow University of Technology, Poland, 25-27 June 2018.

The aim of MATBUD’2018 is to provide a platform for researchers, engineers, academics and students as well as industry professionals to present their research results and development R&D activities in the area of Civil Engineering and Building Materials Engineering to promote exchange, facilitate networking and finding partners for future collaboration.

All information about conference and the news will be available on the conference website. Moreover the registration tool, paper submission and reviewing system are accessible via and the whole conference-related correspondence takes place via email [email protected].

Prospective Authors are invited to submit original papers not being considered for publication elsewhere. Submissions are subjected to peer review process by members of Scientific Committee and judged on originality, significance, interest, relevance and presentation. To ensure high visibility all accepted papers will be published in open access format to be free to read and download. Every document will be identified, enabling the cross-referencing (DOI).

Similarly, to 2015 edition 2018 Conference Proceedings will be submitted for indexation in main databases (Web of Science, Scopus).

Please rest assured that like in previous 7 editions (in 1996, 1998, 2000, 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015) we will make every effort to ensure that this conference edition at least meets the same high scientific and organizational standards as the previous seven ones.

Hoping that you will find our conference interesting, we are looking forward to receiving your contributions to MATBUD’2018.

Yours faithfully

Organizing Committee
