Abstract

In February 2015, the University of Western Australia organised the First International Conference on Rammed Earth Construction. The event was a major success with participants from 11 countries. The participants were representatives from the research (scientists, professors, students) and industry worlds (engineers, architects, builders). The conference provided the unique opportunity to present recent advances in rammed earth research, innovative construction practices and sustainable projects in different countries. It also provided the opportunity to discuss the current issues experienced by the rammed earth industry around the world and to create collaborations between research institutions. This paper presents a summary of the discussions held at the forums of the event. It aims to disseminate the priority research topics identified at the conference and to increase awareness of the difficulties currently experienced by the rammed earth industry and by academia.
