This Conference, like previous AR Conferences, will mainly focus on all aspects of the design, life cycle cost, construction, research, energy and environmental benefits, maintenance, recycling, tire/pavement noise reduction and production of asphalt rubber as a binder or use in a hot mix. Papers on Environmental aspect related to the use of asphalt rubber binders are also encouraged. Particular emphasis and priority will be given to papers about asphalt-rubber as defined by ASTM, i.e. at least 15 percent crumb rubber from recycled waste tires in the asphalt-rubber binder. Papers on related research and/or use of other non-ASTM rubberized asphalt products with crumb rubber from recycled waste tires as the primary asphalt binder modifier may be included as the program permits and as they relate to AR, as defined by ASTM, relative performance. Papers about proprietary asphalt products will not be accepted.
Abstract Deadline: September 15, 2011, for abstracts of no more than 500 words. Abstracts and papers should be in English which is the Conference official language. (There will be simultaneous translation between German <> English)
