This will give the community a chance to present current research and research needs, as well as standards development opportunities and needs.

    The topics for this symposium will focus on the aspects of sealant durability, which include: outdoor exposure, characterization, finite element modeling, monitoring of critical properties, development of accelerated testing, relating accelerated testing to in-service performance and modeling of sealant durability.

    The language of the symposium will be English.
