Call for Participation

Southeast Symposium of Recent Developments in Geotechnics

7th – 9th July 2018

Southeast University, Nanjing, P.R. China


Welcome:

We cordially invite you to the 2018 Southeast Symposium of Recent Developments in Geotechnics, which will be held on 7th – 9th July 2018 at Southeast University, Nanjing, Jiangsu, P.R.China. This is the second in the series, which was launched in 2017 and attracted over 80 researchers from USA, Norway, UK, France, Austria, Japan, Australia, Singapore, India, HKSAR, and the top universities in P.R. China.

It aims at providing a supportive platform to exchange the latest progress in fundamental and applied geotechnical research, to explore new scientific frontiers and new ideas, and to develop strategic plan to tackle real world challenges in energy, environment and sustainability. We welcome contributions from all areas of geomechanics and geotechnical engineering. Each speaker will have 20 minutes to present their work in one of the following sessions: “Geotechnical Frontiers”, “Multi-scale and Multi-physics” and “Cross-disciplinary geo-engineering”, to promote focused discussions and scholarly debates. We also hope to bridge the gap between fundamental research and geotechnical applications by bringing researchers and practitioners in one room.

The symposium is part of the initiatives of Southeast University to raise research profile at the national and international level. A number of travel grants is available for international travellers. It also supports our international recruitment to attract competent academic staff to strengthen existing capacities as well as to catalyse new developments. Potential applicants are highly encouraged to join the event.

This event will be organised in conjunction with the National Postgraduate Summer School in Civil Engineering (1st – 7th July), which has been successfully organised and hosted by Southeast University in the past 8 years. The summer school accommodated around 300 students (selected over 1000 applicants) last year, and 60 of them are in the class of geotechnical engineering.  Opportunities to interact with summer school students will be available.

Look forward to welcoming you in Nanjing.
