Regarding the situation related to COVID-19, we maintain the organization of the Geopolymer Camp in July 2020. We believe that the restrictions may be eased by then. If there was a cancellation (which will be decided not later than beginning of June), all registration fees will be refunded.
SPECIAL TOPICS OF INTEREST:
– Tutorial Workshop (short courses) for Newcomers, on Monday;
– 4 Focused Sessions (the detailed final programme is in progress) :
1) Tuesday morning: Manufacture of metakaolin without calcination at 750°C? Mechanico-chemical processing at room-temperature!
2) Tuesday afternoon: Fiber Reinforced Geopolymer Composite in aircraft for “Sky Safety”.
3) Tuesday afternoon: Geopolymer science applied to Archaeology.
4) Wednesday morning: Fly Ash is a Climate killer! Replace Fly ash with Ferro-sialate-based cement.
Every year, we invite you to join the Geopolymer Institute for the largest, most comprehensive international conference devoted to Geopolymer technologies, the 12th GeopolymerCamp 2020, at the University of Picardie, Campus of Saint-Quentin, North of Paris, France, on July 6-8, 2020.
Last year, we had a big Geopolymer Camp. 2/3 of the participants were professionals from the industry and business pioneers, 1/3 were academics. This event is now the best to create your network.
We have opened the registration by now in February and early birds have already signed up.
We have a limited number of seats (max. 90), so I strongly suggest you do not wait too long to join us. Chances are that, by the end of May, there will be few seats left.
We want to keep this event small in size but big in quality (good knowledge shared and interesting people to meet), as most of you already know, in order to emulate sharing, discussions, meetings, so every participant shall have a satisfying event.
As always, we keep the registration fees to a minimum of 70 Euro (approx. 75 US $) for advance payment, just to cover the costs for organization, lunches, coffee and the like, etc.
FOR NEWCOMERS: If you are new to the world of geopolymers and you don’t know how to begin, what raw materials to select, how to manufacture geopolymers, what are the good practices, and looking for a good understanding of this chemistry, the Geopolymer Institute organizes a Tutorial / Workshop (a short course) for beginners at a very low cost on the first day, Monday, which takes place before the beginning of the Geopolymer Camp. It is aimed at providing a dedicated introduction to geopolymer technology and is illustrated with appropriate laboratory demonstrations. Participants will learn how to make 3 standard recipes for ceramic like application and for cement like use. You will be given the exact step by step recipes, the list of raw materials and chemical ingredients with the name of their suppliers. After this workshop, you will be ready to start.
We have a limited number of seats for the Tutorial (max. 40, i.e. 2 groups of max 20), so I strongly suggest you do not wait too long to join us. Chances are that, by the end of May, there will be only few seats left (like in 2019).
Tutorial fees: 360 Euro (approx. 380 US $) for advanced payment. See the program at the GeopolymerCamp web page:

I am inviting you to participate and to share the spirit of these events and hope to see you in Saint-Quentin for the GeopolymerCamp with Tutorial for Newcomers.
