The 9th International Conference of Asian Concrete Federation (ACF2020)
Advanced & Innovative Concrete Technology
25th-27th November 2020
Swissotel Hotels & Resorts Patong, Phuket, Thailand POSTPONED TO October 2021

For the past several weeks, the organizing committees have been monitoring the situation regarding the pandemic of COVID -19 virus and safety concerns.

We have come to a decision that it is inevitable to postpone the ACF international conference for the first time since ACF was established. The 9th ACF international was decided to be postponed about 1 year, from November 2020 to around the end of October 2021 (next year). Due to many difficulties, health, safety and unforeseen issues, it is the best not to gather people from many different countries at this moment. We hope the situation next year will be favorable for the conference where we can meet without any concern of the pandemic issue.

Please accept our sincere apologize for the decision made. We are looking forward to welcoming all of you again in 2021, with the tentative dates of 27th to 29th October 2021. Please see the Conference website for the new conference dates. For those who have already submitted the abstracts, please resubmit the abstract according to the new abstract submission deadline.

Thank you very much for your understanding of the situation.

With best regards,
Prof. Dr. Somnuk Tangtermsirikul
Chairman of local organizing committee of the 9th ACF International Conference


Asian Concrete Federation (ACF) was officially established since 2004 along with the recognition of the growth of the Asian Region. It is certain that a tremendous amount of research and practical information as well as advanced technologies are now spreading within this region. The Asian Concrete Federation was officially inaugurated at the 1st ACF International Conference organized by Thailand Concrete Association in Chiang Mai in October 2004. The ACF International Conferences were held every 2 years since 2004 in various countries of Asia and have been well functioned as the venue for information exchange as well as for many other activities such as technical meetings of related committees and social meetings of participants, etc.
In 2020, the 9th ACF International Conference is scheduled to be held in Phuket, Thailand on 26th to 27th November 2020 hosted by the Thailand Concrete Association (TCA) together with the Construction and Maintenance Technology Research Center (CONTEC), Sirindhorn International Institute of Technology (SIIT), Thammasat University. To unite the expanding construction industry of Asia with the advanced and innovative technologies, we would like to extend our invitation to all of you to participate in this meaningful conference and to welcome all of you back to the land of smile, Thailand, where ACF was firstly officially established.
We are looking forward to welcoming you at the 9th ACF International Conference.
