During the last decades, imaging techniques such as electron microscopy or X-ray microtomography have dramatically improved our knowledge of civil engineering materials, and allowed the development of a wide range of innovative materials.
Recent advances in techniques as well as algorithms open up even more exciting perspectives with which it is essential for materials scientists to keep up-to-date. The workshop will focus on what can be learned about construction materials and geomaterials from imaging. It will cover various topics, including imaging techniques, image processing, in-situ experiments and applications to scale transitions. Our goal is to offer presentations of cutting-edge techniques as well as more introductory talks on some selected topics. A significant time will be allotted to questions and discussions; we hope that this will contribute to a fruitful exchange of ideas.
