Papers will be presented in the following topic areas:
? continuous insulation (ci);
? energy codes and efficiency;
? sustainability and durability;
? fire performance;
? maintenance and façade inspection;
? code language and standards;
? Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) research;

The symposium is directed at those professionals who primarily make their livelihood in the EIFS industry, and who depend on ASTM standards that govern this industry. This includes manufacturers, designers, architects, applicators, consultants, inspectors, and building owners.
