A new date has been set for the planned E&E Congress. The 7th E&E Congress has now been rescheduled and will be held from 16th – 18th June 2021. The venue will remain the same: Palacio Municipal de Congresos de Madrid.
The organising committee for the congress is also highlighting that current registrations and accommodation reservations will be transferred to the new dates. The congress secretariat has also stated that it will send all registered participants a new confirmation voucher with the new dates shortly.
In the coming days the organising committee says it will update the new registration deadlines and additional information will be sent to the papers’ submitters, exhibitors, sponsors and speakers.
Much of the focus for the rescheduled event will remain the same. The view is that traditional ways of travel will change and the use of automated and guided vehicles will have a greater effect on road requirements. The current recognised industrial change 4.0 – often referred to as “smart” industry – will have a much wider impact and influence on road networks as we move further into the 21st century.
And with more than 90% of the European road infrastructure represented by asphalt materials, the asphalt and bitumen sectors need to accommodate future mobility solutions either for maintenance or construction. The continued integration of digitalisation into industry practices, the need to create better connectivity and data exchange platforms and the general ambition to offer sustainable solutions will all play key roles.
