Smart cement-based materials or functional cement-based materials have been proposed for several years. Due to the social demand for multifunctional cement-based materials, different types and functions of cement-based materials have been continuously developed, just like conductive cement-based materials, which can be used for the self-sensing and snow melting and deicing. Additionally, phase change cement-based materials can be used to regulate indoor temperature changes and reduce energy consumption.
In addition to functional properties, environmental protection and energy conservation in cement production and use are also very important. Solid wastes, such as recycled concrete, river silt ceramsite, incineration waste fly ash cement-based materials, slag concrete, and phosphogypsum brick have attracted many scholars' attention. Additionally, the use of CO2 in the curing of cement-based materials has been proposed. CO2 curing can not only improve the mechanical strength of some cement-based materials but also solidify the toxic and harmful substances in curing materials.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
