The 2011 OWICS conference shall be dedicated to Professor Olafur H Wallevik, Iceland, for his support and significant contribution to this conference series.

Prof Olafur H Wallevik has worked with the rheology of concrete and other cement based particle suspensions from the time he obtained his M.Eng degree from the Norwegian Institute of Technology in 1983 doing research in this area. He continued research in this area and launched the first version of the BML B Viscometer in 1987. This device is now available throughout the world. He received his PhD in rheology from the same University in 1990. In the area of rheology of fresh concrete his main fields of research include high performance concrete, high strength concrete, self-compacting concrete and microstructures. He is currently the head of the concrete division at the Icelandic Building Research Institute and the Manager of Contech Ltd. He is a former vice president of the Nordic Rheology Society and a former chairman of the scientific commission in the Nordic Concrete Federation.
