AMI is pleased to invite you to take part in the next international conference on Waterproof Membranes 2014, which will be held 17-19 November 2014 at the Maritim Hotel in Bonn, Germany.
There will be a networking welcome evening drinks reception on 17 November alongside a focused exhibition. A two-day program of market and technical presentations will follow.
If you would like to attend the conference at the early registration rate, take a tabletop exhibition space (sold on a first come first choice basis), or advertise through sponsorship with logos on the conference literature and web site with other promotional opportunities, please contact:

CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS
Presentations are invited on all topics related to waterproof membranes. Example topics:
- Market trends worldwide
- Design and selection of waterproofing for different applications
- Case studies
- Materials performance: bitumen, thermoplastics, elastomers, reinforcement, additives, pigments
- Membrane structures and manufacturing
- Installation technology, adhesion, sealing and joints
- Properties: weathering, fire resistance, lifetime prediction, windlift, chemical and root resistance
- Quality control, testing and certification
- “Green” aspects such as renewable energy integration, cooling, reflectance, recycling, roof gardens
- Multifunctional membranes
- Technical and economic issues in the industry
Speakers have a 30-minute slot, which includes 5 minutes for questions. Also, speakers attend the conference free of charge (one free place per paper). Papers are required as PowerPoint 2 months prior to the conference.
If you or a colleague would like to speak at this conference, please send a paper title and short summary to Dr Sally Humphreys before 2nd May 2014. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Tel: +44 117 924 9442.
About Waterproof Membranes
Waterproof membranes provide essential protection of the earth’s resources – preventing water ingress in construction and conserving water in reservoirs, whilst also lining hazardous waste areas to prevent leachate from contaminating the surrounding land. From bitumen to advanced synthetic polymer compounds as a material base, waterproofing has been established and tested for lifetime prediction, weathering performance, leak testing, barrier properties, etc. Curently waterproof membranes are expected to be multifunctional such as providing cooling mechanisms to roofs by reflecting incident light, or a base for a roof garden, or an energy production site with integrated photovoltaic systems. There are innovations in environmental aspects such as bio-based sourcing of materials and recycling after recovery.
