Concrete pavement researchers from around the world gathered in Chicago to exchange research findings and implementation lessons with promise for extending the life of concrete pavements. The October 2006 conference was part of CPTP's technology transfer activities and was co-sponsored by nine other national and State organizations (American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, American Concrete Pavement Association, Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute, Illinois Chapter - ACPA, Illinois Department of Transportation, International Society for Concrete Pavements, National Concrete Pavement Technology Center, Portland Cement Association, Transportation Research Board). The conference presenters addressed a wide range of issues, for example:
The program also included relevant highlights from the 10th International PIARC Conference, the 2006 International Long-Life Concrete Scan, and the 6th International DUT-Workshop.
