15th in the series since 1989 and one of the prominent international built environment technical events held in Malaysia

This biennial international conference on concrete engineering and technology, 15th in the series since 1989 is one of the prominent international built environment technical events held in Malaysia, attracting speakers and audiences from across the globe. 

Since inception, this conference has been jointly organised by;

The Institution of Engineers, Malaysia (lead organiser for CONCET2020)

University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Universiti Teknologi MARA, Shah Alam, Malaysia



CONCET2020 will cover fresh perspectives and the latest in the wider topic of innovation and a more specific topic of resilience, in concrete construction


Innovation is a wide concept of exploring, creating, changing and adopting. With the pace of change and development seen within Malaysia, the ASEAN region and globally, there is an increasing pressure for industry professionals to meet the demands for better and faster. This in return requires the knowledge of the latest and current, which the conference will explore 


The resilience design institute defines resilience as the capacity to adapt to changing conditions and to maintain or regain functionality and vitality in the face of stress or disturbance. It is the capacity to bounce back after a disturbance or interruption. With this term in mind, the conference will explore advancements in concrete engineering and technology with regards to use of concrete in resilient design in construction, focusing in particular on sustainability, safety and durability
