The XVII European Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering
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.
Evaluating the responses of mountains to climate and other changes, and their resilience as social-ecological systems, requires the consideration of multiple and mutually interacting stressors. The IMC 2019 aims to encourage in-depth cross-disciplinary discussions towards a new understanding of mountain systems, their responses and resiliencies.
The IMC 2019 will take place 08 - 12 September 2019 in Innsbruck, Austria. It aims to build upon the three previous mountain conferences that took place in Perth, Scotland, continuing this special scientific conference series with a focus on mountain-specific topics. Hosted in the Alps, the IMC 2019 will provide an excellent opportunity for experts from different disciplines to come together and discuss mountain-related issues.
We are happy to be part of this event with a case study of lessons learned for a flexible shallow landslide barrier at the workshop 2.4.B, presented by Helene Hofmann.

2019 will be a special year for the ISRM South America National Groups when the region welcomes the ISRM family for its 14th Congress. Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay will be the host countries for the event that is to be held in Foz do Iguassu, city that marks the common border amongst these countries. It is an honor to organize such a venue but it is also a great responsibility to maintain the tradition of memorable ISRM congresses.
The central theme of the Congress is Rock Mechanics for Natural Resources and Infrastructure Development, a theme much relevant and needed for the current stage of most of the countries. All ISRM regions are invited to share their experience in the theme. The technical programme is being established by an International Scientific Committee in order to attract different categories of geotechnical professionals as academics, consultants, contractors, public companies and should incorporate issues of ISRM Technical Commissions.

Meet our experts at booth number 66 at the Panamerican Conference in Cancún!
It is essential that Wales has cutting edge transport links to move people to jobs, encourage investment and help grow our economy. Moreover, it is important that future investment provides visible and practical improvements to the rail travel experience on a franchise with the potential to grow transport links between England and Wales. With the franchising powers we are devolving to the Welsh Government, the UK Government has delivered on a key recommendation made by Sir Paul Silk’s Commission on Devolution in Wales. We now look to the Welsh Government to deliver on our joint ambitions to improve connectivity, cut journey times and create a transport infrastructure that is fit for the future.”
This one day conference will bring the leaders from the region together to discuss the STrIDe framework, the new Wales and Borders franchise, investing in good design, new technology and innovation, funding and investment, the skills shortage and how we are going to align apprenticeship programmes to fit the needs of the sector.

Der Ausbau der Infrastruktur sowie die Verdichtung in den Ballungsräumen führen dazu, dass die Bedeutung des Bauens in Boden und Fels sowie die Anforderungen bei der Errichtungunterirdischer Bauwerke zunehmen. Für Neubauten sind Bauverfahren zu entwickeln, die komplexen Bedingungen gerecht werden und eine Beeinträchtigung der Umgebung minimieren, bei bestehenden Einrichtungen wird die wirtschaftliche und umweltgerechte Bauwerkserhaltung bzw. das Bauen im Bestand immer mehr zur ingenieurtechnischen Herausforderung. Dadurch ergeben sich bedeutende und interessante Fragestellungen für die Bau- und Geotechnik, die beim 12. Kolloquium „Bauen in Boden und Fels“ dargestellt und diskutiert werden. Innerstädtische Bauaufgaben erfordern anspruchsvolle Verfahren des Spezialtiefbaus, um verformungsarme Baugruben und Gründungen in teilweise schwierigen Baugrundverhältnissen so herzustellen, dass Verkehrsflüsse kaum beeinträchtigt werden, Lärm- und Schmutzemissionen begrenzt sind und dennoch eine funktionierende Logistik eine planbare und wirtschaftliche Durchführung ermöglicht.
Wir freuen uns, Sie an unserem Stand am 12. Kolloquium "Bauen im Boden und Fels" der technischen Akademie Esslingen (TAE) zu begrüssen.
A flagship event in AusIMM’s calendar, the Underground Operators (UGOPS) conference will return again in 2020. Bringing together mining engineers, mine operators, technical service managers and consultants, UGOPS sets the benchmark for sharing underground operational experiences and industry best practice.
With deposits getting deeper or lower in grade, there is increased pressure to find smarter and more cost-effective ways to extract orebodies. With key discussion topics for UGOPS 2020 centred around the evolution of digital technologies, automation and artificial intelligence and how these innovations are making it possible to mine at greater depths and lower grades.
The conference will feature: selected technical papers with a strong operational focus, mine tours to see how other operations work and specialised workshops providing additional professional development opportunities.
Meet our experts at the booth number 63!
