The symposium will have two categories of presentations:

  • Scientific papers, in response to the call for papers drafted by the scientific committee of the symposium, which will be available before May 31, 2011;
  • Technology updates, presenting the latest development in measuring devices, testing equipment and services provided to road authorities and operators in the area of pavement surface characteristics.

All submitted abstracts have been reviewed and a decision has been made on their acceptance based on feedback from the Scientific Committee.
