On behalf of local committee of ISAP2012 , I would be very pleased to invite you to the meeting of ISAP 2012 international Symposium on Heavy Duty Asphalt Pavements and Bridge Deck Pavements(ISAP2012).
The International Society for Asphalt Pavements (ISAP) was formed in 1987, which is the only world-wide organization to promote technology transfer for flexible pavements. ISAP is well known for its high quality International Conference on Asphalt Pavements (ICAP). ICAP is held every four yeas, such as the last conference successfully held in August 01-06, 2010, Nagoya, Japan. ISAP has also started sponsoring International Symposium that are organized between the ICAP’S, such as the first symposium on Design and Construction of Long Lasting Asphalt Pavements June 7th-9th, 2004, in Auburn, USA, and the second Symposium on Asphalt Pavements and Environment August 18th-20th, 2008 in Zurich, Switzerland. ISAP2012 will lanuch the the third ISAP International Symposium May 23-25, 2012 in Nanjing, China. It is the first time for the symposium to be held in Asia
Heavy Duty Asphalt Pavements and Bridge Deck Pavements are the two major technological problems and road experts from all around the world have made tremendous efforts to solve these two problems. To sum up recent scientific research progress of Heavy Duty Asphalt Pavements and Bridge Deck Pavements, this Symposium sets the topic as " Heavy Duty Asphalt Pavements and Bridge Deck Pavements".
Nanjing is a famous cultural city with a long history, and is a charming and vibrant modern city as well. We look forward to seeing you in Nanjing in 2012 and we sincerely wish every participant a happy stay.
