About the Event

The Symposium on Dimension Stone Use in the Built Environment will be held Wednesday and Thursday, April 1-2, 2020. Sponsored by ASTM Committee C18 on Dimension Stone, the symposium will be held at the Boston Marriott Copley Place in Boston, MA in conjunction with the April standards development meetings of the committee.


Dimension stone cladding and paving systems continue to evolve and present challenges to design professionals, owners, and installation, repair, and restoration contractors. This symposium is intended to bring together the diverse interests of professionals in the dimension stone community involved with the design, construction, evaluation, and use of dimension stone for a formal exchange of information on the behavior of dimension stone in the built environment.

Topics will include, but are not limited to:

  • Physical and/or mechanical properties
  • Design
  • Evaluation and investigation
  • Durability
  • Maintenance
  • Restoration


The language of the symposium will be English.
