To the participants of the
World Conference on Pavement and Asset Management (WCPAM2017)

The Politecnico di Milano is pleased to host the World Conference on Pavement and Asset Management (WCPAM2017).
This conference is part of the panorama of scientific and educational interests of our university and of the fruitful exchanges internationally active to promote, disseminate and enhance the culture and knowledge in a field of such high strategic value for all countries.
In this context, the Politecnico di Milano, with the organization of WCPAM2017, offers its contribution to bring together international experts in the field, involving not only the academy but the entire set of stakeholders in the management of transport infrastructure, in order to complement each other’s experiences and different approaches to the issues, generating an extraordinary opportunity for discussion, exchange and immediate professional growth.
The beautiful places which will host the event constitute a further element of attractiveness of the event.

On behalf of the Politecnico di Milano, while wishing an active and wide participation to WCPAM2017, I am pleased to give a warm welcome greeting and a very profitable congressional work.

Ferruccio Resta
Rector of Politecnico di Milano
