Keywords: sustainable building materials rising damp and salts building materials deterioration mechanisms diagnostics innovative materials for restoration architectural restoration stone consolidants modern architecture materials

1. Materials for Architectural Heritage conservation: ancient materials and their decay in aggressive environments; new diagnostic techniques and protocols; new materials for a compatible and phylological restoration (new inorganic consolidants, mortars conservation, advanced treatments for concrete protection, new protectives, etc.); materials of modern architecture (artificial stones, dry-mix renders) and their repair.

2. Rising damp in historic masonries; effects and consequences; new techniques for the on-site measurement of moisture, salts and electrokinetic effects in building materials; materials and technologies for rising damp reduction in masonries; masonry models in laboratory.

3. Inolrganic or polymer-bound composite materials for advanced applications in historical buildings and civil structures: performance, compatibility and durability in aggressive environment.

4. Sustainable building materials: evaluation methodologies, also by LCA; materials with recycled fractions.
