The 14th International Conference "Special Concrete and Composites" (October 10-11, 2017, Skalský Dvůr, Czech Republic) was focused on the problems of preparing and use of the special concretes and composites in the practice of the contemporary construction. We hope that published results will be useful for many specialists from the area of building materials and concrete structures. Using of special concretes and composites is often closely connected with severe loading conditions of final elements. Design and development of the mentioned materials must take account of basic properties of all components because they can be special by their binder system, used fillers or by other technological solutions.

Description: This book collects 47 papers corresponding to communications presented at 29th Symposium and Annual Meeting of the International Society for Ceramics in Medicine (ISCM, October 25-27, 2017, Toulouse, France), one focus article related to the plenary lecture given by Corrado Piconi on bioinert ceramics, and 46 contributions, related to oral and poster communications on the different topics of the meeting, organized in six different chapters. This book continues the tradition of the Bioceramics series offering, generally to young researchers, the ability to publish the work they are eager to present to the community of specialists participating to the meeting. The originality of the Bioceramics series is that the papers are available before the meeting to allow deeper, more detailed discussions than those occurring in classical meetings where exchanges are often hampered by the limited time devoted to presentations. These papers might not be perfect but we believe that the basis for discussions they provide is irreplaceable.
