EATA 2019

The University of Granada (Spain) will host the 8th European Asphalt Technology Association Conference, that will take place between the 3 and 5th of June in Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros de Caminos, Canales y Puertos.

During these days, the participants will have the opportunity to share their works related to the following topics:

  • Mechanical, thermal, chemical and/or physical properties and characteristics of bitumen, additives, bituminous mixtures, asphalt concrete, as well as mixture design.
  • Sustainability and environmental aspects of bituminous materials used for road and other transportation infrastructures (railway, ports, airports…).
  • Design and modelling of pavement behaviour and performance, structural evaluation, stress/strain and thermal characterization and calculation, vehicle/road interaction, climatic effects and numerical and analytical modelling for the different bituminous layers of roads and other transportation infrastructures (railway, ports, airports…).
  • New mixtures and mixture components, including smart and innovative asphalt pavements.
  • Construction and rehabilitation procedures, as well as asphalt production technologies.

A selection of the best papers will be published in a Road Materials and Pavement Design journal special issue. 

The best EATA presentation and poster will receive an EATA 2019 award. 

24 February 2019: Deadline for registration of authors



EATA, the European Asphalt Technology Association, is an organisation of European engineers and scientists involved in Asphalt Technology Research. They hold a technical meeting every two or three years and publish a volume of the papers which are presented and discussed. Attendance is open to anyone with an interest in the field from around the world.

EATA was founded at the University of Nottingham in 2004, it can trace its origins there back to 1973 at the University of Nottingham where a group of people with an interest in new developments in flexible pavement engineering met to hold informal discussions about their work, focussing, particularly, on new ideas and developments. They agreed to meet annually thereafter and to do so inspired by the activities of the Association of Asphalt Paving Technologists in the USA that was formed in 1924.
