17-22 Sept. 2017, 19th ICSMGE, Seoul

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee for the 19th International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (19th ICSMGE), I am pleased to welcome you all to the 19th ICSMGE to be held in Seoul, Republic of Korea, from September 17 to 22, 2017.

The theme of the 19th ICSMGE is “Unearth the Future, Connect Beyond [ ].” It is about bridging the gaps between past and future, between young and senior engineers, and between developing and developed nations among others. Making these connections is the key to greater innovations. The logo for the 19th ICSMGE symbolizes our vision where the colours represent how well and harmoniously living organisms, groundwater and strata coexist- the way we hope different regions can coexist in harmony- while the waves represent the Han River, which is the heart of Korea’s economic growth.

The 19th ICSMGE will prepare various programs, including a Plenary Session, Parallel Sessions, ISSMGE Honour Lectures, iYGEC, Technical visits, and exhibitions. The Local Organizing Committee would like to invite you all and share our experiences with member societies. We are ready to reach out and listen to various and valuable voices from member societies and are willing to reflect their wishes into the program, serving as a rainbow bridge between member societies in ISSMGE and beyond.

Please join the 19th ICSMGE with your colleagues and friends. We are sure that you will have a memorable and productive conference. We look forward to having the pleasure of welcoming you all to Seoul.

12 – 14 September, The 8th Offshore Site Investigation and Geotechnics International Conference

The conference will focus on new research and developments in site investigation data acquisition, evaluation and integration, geotechnical analysis and design as well as field operational experience.

We are looking forward to meeting you at the conference!

6 – 8 September, Fachsektionstage Geotechnik

Die Deutsche Gesellschaft für Geotechnik e.V. (DGGT) und ihre Fachsektionen „Bodenmechanik“, „Felsmechanik“, „Ingenieurgeologie“, „Kunststoffe in der Geotechnik“ und „Umweltgeotechnik“ laden Sie herzlich zur Teilnahme an der Erstveranstaltung der „Fachsektionstage Geotechnik – Interdisziplinäres Forum“ vom 6. – 8. September 2017 nach Würzburg ein.

Diese Veranstaltung bietet allen Teilnehmern die Möglichkeit, an folgenden fünf
Tagungen/Symposien teilzunehmen:

Das Besondere der Fachsektionstage Geotechnik: Alle Teilnehmer haben Zugang zu allen Vorträgen der einzelnen Veranstaltungen. Die einzelnen Tagungen bzw. Symposien werden dabei als separate Tagungsstränge zeitlich parallel oder auch zeitlich versetzt an den 2 Tagen durchgeführt.

Das neue Veranstaltungsformat wird den genannten Fachsektionen und allen Interessierten aus diesen Fachbereichen eine bestens geeignete Plattform bieten, um sich zu treffen und den fachlichen Austausch, auch fach(sektions)übergreifend, zu pflegen.

Nutzen Sie diese Gelegenheit, sich über aktuelle Erfahrungen und neueste Erkenntnisse aus Wissenschaft und Praxis aus fünf Fachbereichen der Geotechnik zu informieren!

Wir freuen uns Sie auf unserem Messestand F28 begrüßen zu dürfen.

15-19 July, GeoMEast 2017

We are delighted to invite you to join us at the GeoMEast International Conference in July 2017. This is the first in this series of such conferences to be held in Middle East’s great cities. It will be held in Sharm El-Sheikh and being located in the heart of the Middle East.

Our conference theme, Innovative Infrastructure Geotechnology, is broad and inclusive. We believe that this presents a multitude of opportunities for all parts of the industry (including consultants, contractors and materials and equipment manufacturers, as well as academics) and at all career stages to attend and to present papers.

A lot of keynote lectures, invited lectures, technical sessions, poster presentations, workshops, technical meetings, social and technical visits, and student competitions will be available to make this event the most interactive in the Middle East, if not the most interactive in the world.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the conference! You can find us at booth 10.

12-15 Jul. 52nd Japan National Conference on Geotechnical Engineering 2017

We are looking forward to seeing you at the conference.


On behalf of the organizing committee I am delighted to invite you to participate in the 2017 ISRM European Rock Mechanics Symposium (EUROCK 2017) to be held in Ostrava, Czech Republic, on June 19-22, 2017. This Symposium is the common endeavour of the Institute of Geonics of the Czech Academy of Sciences and the Czech National Group of the ISRM, who are doing their best to organize a pleasant and valuable event.

 We have prepared an appealing program with a good number of keynote lectures by some of the world’s leading experts on rock mechanics. Three short workshops will also take place before the Symposium and some visits to different attractive mine and civil engineering works are in preparation for the aftermath.

Looking forward to seeing you at our booth (no 7).
