Topics of Interest
The Petersen Asphalt Research Conference welcomes presentations of current
asphalt research results from fundamental and applied science studies. LCD
projector will be available for presenters.
Past topics have included:
- Composition and reactivity of asphalt
- Composition and physical property relationships
- Specification, testing and instrumentation
- Asphalt–aggregate interactions
- Moisture damage
- Low-temperature behavior
- Asphalt modification
- Synthetic asphalt
- Predicting asphalt pavement performance
- Field trials
- Forensic Studies.
As a way to expand our technical outreach this year, chemistry related presentations
will be given the opportunity to be peer-reviewed and published in the Energy
& Fuels Journal.
The deadline for submission is May 14, 2018.. We’ll let you know by May
25, 2018 if your presentation is selected for the program. Please don’t
forget to register for the conference—submitting an abstract doesn’t
automatically register you for the conference.
Your conference abstract will be included with the Petersen Asphalt Research
Conference program. We don’t publish papers, but if you want your paper
distributed at the conference, provide copies to the registration staff, and
they will assist with distribution.
