For the members of the Organizing Committee it is a great honor and indeed a privilege, not to mention an exciting challenge, to have received the responsibility for organizing the 15th edition of the International conference on Durability of Building Materials and Components.

Over more than 40 years, the DBMC triennial conferences have been a recognized worldwide event and a meeting point for high quality research and expert professionals in the area of building technologies, civil engineering and architecture focused on durability.

UPC-BarcelonaTECH feels proud to host the 2020 edition and encourages all international members of the academic and professional community to take part in by submitting and abstract such that this event can provide a highly fruitful forum for the exchange and dissemination of your work and research.

On the DBMC 2020 website you will find the characteristics and the novelties of what we are preparing. We hope it becomes stimulating for all of you, from the academic and networking point of view, as an unforgettable experience. This is our commitment.

Please, sign up on the Conference front page, browse the website, keep updated with the last news, and submit your abstract proposal. You can also follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn.

Looking forward to welcome you in Barcelona!
