17th European Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering @ HARPA
Sep 1 – Sep 6 all-day

ISSMGE LogoThe Icelandic Geotechnical Society will host the XVII European Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering in Reykjavik, Iceland 1 – 6 September 2019.

The theme of the Conference is: “Geotechnical Engineering, foundation of the future.”

The theme of the conference embraces all aspects of geotechnical engineering.  Geotechnical engineering is the foundation of current as well as future societies, which both rely on complex civil engineering infrastructures, and call for mitigation of potential geodangers posing threat to these. Geotechnical means and solutions are required to ensure infrastructure safety and sustainable development. Those means are rooted in past experiences enhanced by research and technology of today.

At great events such as the European Geotechnical Conference we should:  Spread our knowledge and experience to our colleagues; Introduce innovations, research and development of techniques and equipment; Report on successful geotechnical constructions and application of geotechnical design methods, as well as, on mitigation and assessment of geohazards and more.

Such events also provide an opportunity to draw the attention of others outside the field of geotechnical engineering to the importance of what we are doing, particularly to those who, directly or indirectly, rely on our services, knowledge and experience. Investment in quality geotechnical work is required for successful and safe design, construction and operation of any infrastructure. Geotechnical engineering is the key to a safe and sustainable infrastructure and of importance for the society, economy and the environment. This must be emphasized and reported upon.
