Benchmarking is of significant importance in geotechnical engineering, both for testing and verifying innovative soil investigation methods and foundation solutions. NGI and its partners, NTNU, SINTEF, UNIS and the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA), are pleased to welcome you all to the 1st International GeoTest Site Symposium (ISGTS) in Oslo. The 1st ISGTS aims to:

  • Present detailed characterization of a wide range of natural soils used for benchmarking in geotechnical engineering, and
  • Promote an increase use of the benchmark sites as a research tool, as training and teaching facilities and as ground for development of new soil models, testing of new investigation methods and further advance the state-of-the-art.

The BGA Annual Conference is an all day event, to be held on the 19 June 2019 at the ICE, London. 2019 is the BGA’s 70th anniversary, and the theme of the conference is Celebrating 70 years of BGA and the next 70 years of innovation in geotechnical engineering

After the increasingly successful conferences held in Tokyo 1995, Lisbon 1999, Berkeley 2004, Thessaloniki 2007, Santiago 2011 and Christchurch 2015, the Italian Geotechnical Society (AGI) on appointment by the ISSMGE Technical Committee 203 (‘Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering and associated problems’) is delighted to announce that Roma will host the 7th International Conference on Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering (VII ICEGE) from 17 to 20 June 2019.

As in the previous editions, the conference topics will address through general and parallel sessions the most recent developments in earthquake geotechnical engineering, stimulating fruitful technical and scientific interaction within the fields of seismology, geophysics, geology, structural as well as infrastructural engineering.

The American Rock Mechanics Association’s 53rd US Rock Mechanics / Geomechanics Symposium will be taking place 23 - 26 June 2019 in New York City. This symposium encompasses all aspects of rock mechanics, geomechanics, and rock engineering. 

Under the auspices of the ISSMGE Technical Committee TC101 Laboratory Stress Strain Strength Testing of Geomaterials

The TC101 of the ISSMGE is pleased to announce the 7th International Symposium on Deformation Characteristics of Geomaterials to be held in 2019 in Glasgow. The Symposium is co-organised by the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow and the University of Bristol. Building on the tradition of previous Symposia from Sapporo in 1994 to Buenos Aires in 2015, IS-Glasgow 2019 will bring together researchers and practitioners to explore new directions in geomaterial testing.
