The topics for the conference developed from the ever-changing requirements of the Karst region. With new settlements at the foot of the high cliffs, there has been a need for a high-quality protection to provide slope stability. With the need to build in urban areas, and in order to preserve valuable resources on the surface for other purposes, the coastal towns descend underground into areas of ​​the covered rock mass. The construction of the foundations of large bridges and offshore roads on the coastal belt creates challenges. The need for construction of high-speed roads in the coastal belt of the Republic of Croatia is forcing excavations of long tunnels, again poses a threat to the Karst area. These are the topics that will be discussed at the conference.

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.
