With the development of instrumentation and computation facilities, research on frontier areas have gone manifold. The discussion on the frontier areas of research in inter-disciplinary streams has always yielded novel ideas and collaborative research. In view of this, the International Conference on Advances in Construction Materials and Structures (ICCMS-2021) is meticulously planned to muster innovative ideas from researchers, scientists, academicians, industry professionals and students. The aim of the conference is to provide a common platform to share and discuss the novel ideas, technologies, and research findings to promote interdisciplinary research and ignite young brains.
