In recent years, there has been a growing demand for cement materials. These include, above all, concrete, as well as various types of mortars. Increasingly, other building materials such as roof tiles, tiles, curbs, etc. are also made of cement materials. Along with this demand, researchers’ interest in optimizing their design, manufacture, and use in construction is also increasing. In addition to traditional computational methods, advanced tools, including artificial intelligence, are increasingly being used.
The term artificial intelligence has several scientific definitions, but it commonly refers to machines or applications that are able to perform tasks that require human perception. Artificial intelligence is known for including powerful techniques and is now being used more frequently by civil engineers to solve a whole range of real problems related to cementitious materials. How can we properly predict the mechanical properties of cement materials without their costly and time-consuming tests? What is the accuracy of this prediction? Is it possible to predict these properties over time? How does artificial intelligence work in practical applications of cementitious materials? How can we properly approach the optimization of concrete composition with the help of artificial intelligence? How will artificial intelligence affect the durability of a cementitious material? These are the questions you should seek to answer in this Special Issue.
Considering the above, this Special Issue brings together the recent research, applications and experiences of researchers in the area of applications of artificial intelligence for solving scientific problems in cementitious materials used in civil engineering.
The main objective of this Special Issue is to share, present, and discuss recent applications of artificial intelligence in cementitious materials. Special focus will be placed on real-world applications. Original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate continuing efforts in applications of artificial intelligence in cementitious materials are welcomed.

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.
