The 11th International Symposium on Concrete Roads, took place in Seville from 13 to 15 October 2010. This edition welcomed more than 500 people from the cement and concrete industry, representing 35 countries. Next to the plenary sessions and technical visits to Marchena, Huelva and Cádiz, the attendees enjoyed equally a social programme.
