RAR2018 will focus on any and all rubberized asphalt materials containing scrap tire rubber, from a low percentage such as 5 percent to higher percentages above even 20 percent. Since there have been so many recent significant changes in the testing, specifying and application of scrap tire rubber in asphalt this Conference’s focus is literally on all types of asphalt binders or asphalt hot mixes containing any percentage of scrap tire rubber, as well as both wet and dry applications. In addition both generic and proprietary rubberized asphalt products can be reported.
Since papers in the RAR2018 are all peer reviewed, we plan to selected a number of them for further consideration and publication in the International Journal of Road Materials and Pavement Design (IJRMPD). The selected papers should be extended and completed before submission to RMPD. This creates the potential opportunity for some of RAR2018’s high caliber papers to be included in future editions of IJRMPD. The IJRMPD has a blind peer review process for accepting papers, and has substantial international distribution, and, above all it is indexed in SCI. This could facilitate the dissemination of papers that would otherwise be confined to these proceedings and with somewhat limited distribution. Therefore, it should be understood that papers that are being presented at this conference may be later accepted for the peer review and modification process of the IJRMPD prior to their printing. For those papers accepted later for publication by the IJRMPD, their inclusion here in the RAR2018 Proceedings should be considered as pre-publication drafts.
