We the students of 2nd year Structural Engineering have attended an International
conference which was organized by Indian Concrete Institute. The organizers named it Infracon -
2017. The conference was held in Centre pointHotel Nagpur. It was of two days from morning 9
AM to 9 PM including breakfast, lunch and dinner. It was based on Innovations in Concrete for
Infrastructure Challenges. To it many Scholars, Professors showed their presence. Some of them
have came from abroad too. The conference was too useful for we the Civil Engineers.

First day of the conference has started with inauguration ceremony at morning where all the
chief guests has been introduced and felicitated. After a short break , technical sessions has been
started where in each session there were a Chairman and a Co-chairman to control or to host the

The very first technical session of first day has started at 11.30 AM where the Chairman was

underground construction for Metro station.
2. After that Dr. A.K. Mullicks lecture was about Confluence of requirement for
sustainable and durable Concrete.
3. Er. P.L. Bongirwars topic was Cost effective solution for Urban Roads.
4. After that Dr. Toshimi Mastumoto who has came from Japan delivered lecture about A
new class Chemical Admixture to improve Concrete Rheology.
So these where the Speakers of the first session of the conference . The
remaining time of the session has made reserved for Techno Commercials to advertise
their firms. So in this way the first session has ended up.

Next we have been provided lunch break of 45 minutes before the starting of second session.

5. And finally at the end as usual, remaining time were for Techno Commercials.

After that we had a short tea break .The third session has been started at 4.10 PM . This time
they had arranged two parallel sessions. The listeners may sit to any session as per their interest.
