Topics that will be presented contain, but are not limited to:
- surface durability;
- use and intention of ASTM C1701, Standard Test Method for Infiltration of In Place Pervious Concrete, for field permeability;
- Density and voids of freshly delivered material;
- Use of admixtures to improve pervious attributes; and
- Correlations of field cores to ASTM C1688, Standard Test Method for Density and Void Content of Freshly Mixed Pervious Concrete.

Interested presenters/authors must submit a 250-300 word abstract by Jan. 4, 2011, online at www.astm.org/C09symp1211.htm. You will be notified by March 4, 2011, of your paper's acceptability for presentation. Symposium presenters are required to submit their papers to the Journal of ASTM International (JAI).
