34 • July 2017 BRIEFS ACTIVITIES & APPOINTMENTS Members of ASTM International Committees C01 on Cement and C09 on Concrete and Concrete Aggregates invite preliminary abstracts of candidate papers for Symposium on Advances in Cement Analysis and Concrete Petrography, June 27, 2018, at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina. The event will take place in conjunction with the committees' standards development meetings, and provide a forum for cement technologists and concrete petrographers to present technolo- gies advancing the industry and addressing quality control challenges. Paper or presentation topics might include advances in cement anal- ysis or concrete petrography, or related case studies, plus challenges of emerging materials to cement analysis and concrete petrography. In 250-300 word preliminary abstracts due by August 4, authors should clearly define the objective and approach of the work dis - cussed, point out new material, and present sufficient details regarding results. Presentations or manuscripts must not be of com- mercial nature nor can they have been previously published. Candidate presenters will be notified by regular mail of the status of their papers within two weeks of the abstract deadline. Final abstracts will be distributed in an abstract booklet at the symposium. Additional information on the Symposium on Advances in Cement Analysis and Concrete Petrography can be obtained from co-chairs Don Brown,, or Derek Cong, Questions on symposium registration or abstract submission can be directed to ASTM staff liaison, Tessa Sulkes, 610/832-9677, sympo- ASTM C01, 09 SYMPOSIUM: CEMENT ANALYSIS, CONCRETE PETROGRAPHY ASTM E06, D08 SYMPOSIUM: BUILDING SCIENCE, ENCLOSURE PERFORMANCE ASTM International Committees E06 on Performance of Buildings and D08 on Roofing and Waterproofing invite abstracts of papers for the Symposium on Building Science and the Physics of Building Enclosure Performance, October 21, 2018, at the Washington (D.C.) Hilton. Con- current with E06 standards development meetings, it will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on building and enclosure research with an emphasis on energy use, environment, plus testing or assessment of heat, air and moisture transfer. Symposium topics may include but are not limited to a) interface detailing and continuity of environmental control layers and their impact on whole building performance; b) critical review of E06 and D08 standards and how or why they fail to correlate or are in con- flict; c) durability definition and enforcement; d) building physics, conservation and preservation; and, e) case studies. Authors must submit 250-300 word preliminary abstracts online by September 29, 2017, and include a clear definition of the objective and approach of the work discussed, pointing out material that is new, and presenting sufficient details on results. The presentation and manuscript must not be of a commercial nature nor can it have been previously pub- lished. Symposium co-chairs Dan Lemieux,, or Jennifer Keegan,, will notify authors of paper status by late November. Final abstracts will be distributed in a program booklet at the symposium. CTLGroup has appointed David Mizwicki as vice president and chief financial officer. He will be responsible for financial management, business performance and leadership of finance and accounting within the Skokie, Ill.-based materials testing and engineering consulting organization. CTLGroup cites Mizwicki's track record of leading mul- tiple companies to improved performance and results, along with his ability to use strong analytic, planning and organizational skills to solve financial and business challenges. Prior to CTL Group, he held senior finance and accounting positions with TRM, Brightstar Corp., Sears Holding and Motorola.
