     Building an ecological civilization system and promoting green development in an all-round way have been an important strategic policy at the present stage in China. Building materials industry is the pillar industry of national economy. Development of building materials from traditional high energy consumption and heavy pollution to sustainable direction with high performance, functionalization and environment-friendly character have been an inevitable trend. The concept of sustainable building materials should be in accordance with the overall layout of material research and development, production, application and management to realize green, low carbon and resource recycling, and grasp the new opportunities of green development. 
     Metallurgical and fossil solid waste is one of the most important industrial solid waste in China. It emits about Billions of tons annually. However, the comprehensive utilization rate is less than 30% and the lack of large-scale application have always been a great challenge for its resource utilization. With the national pilot project of "non-waste city", the reduction of solid waste and the utilization of resources have been promoted to the strategic level of national construction. Promoting reduction and resource utilization of metallurgical solid waste and tailings can not only solve the problems of scientific disposal and environmental pollution, but also open up an effective way for the development and utilization of sustainable building materials. 
  To learn from the advanced technologies and concepts for the utilization of metallurgical and fossil solid wastes, promote international cooperation, strengthen horizontal cooperation among relevant scientific research institutions, The 4th International Conference on Sustainable Construction Materials & The 3rd International Metallurgical and Fossil Solid Waste Symposium (SCM & MFSW 2020) , sponsored by Institute of Technical Information for Building Materials Industry (ITIBMI), Wuhan University of Technology (WUT), Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and The University of Alabama (UA), will be held in Inner Mongolia, during August 4-7, 2020. The 2020 conference will give opportunity for technical exchange, project cooperation and academic exploration, to follow up the latest sustainable building materials developments and further improve the technology level of metallurgical and fossil solid waste resource utilization in China.
