The idea about the second day is to clarify many issues that nowadays are the reason of many confusions in the scientific community: History of alkaline cements; Materials for fabricating precursors; Chemicals (liquids or solids) for activation; Interaction of chemicals with additives for concrete; Real CO2 savings by using alkaline cements; Cement or concrete: two alternatives in alkaline activation; Efflorescences; Standards; etc.
