We would like to draw your attention to the attached Call for Submissions for Geo-Extreme 2021, a specialty conference organize by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) to be held at the Hyatt Regency Savannah, in Savannah, GA, USA, on August 15-18, 2021.
Geo-Extreme 2021 aims to create a multi-disciplinary forum to discuss how the geo-engineering community can work with other professionals, e.g., climate scientists, engineers, emergency managers, resilience and sustainability investigators, insurance experts, and policy makers, to cope with extreme events under a changing climate.
Proposals for technical sessions, panels, and short courses are due May 22 and may be only emailed to Jay McKelvey at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Abstracts are due June 19 and may be only submitted via the online Submission System at: https://www.geoinstitute.org/index.php/news/geo-extreme-2021-call-abstracts
Il primo Mediterranean Symposium on Landslides, intitolato “Slope Stability Problems in Stiff Clays and Flysch Formations“, si terrà a Napoli dal 7 al 9 giugno 2021. La scadenza per l’invio dei sommari è fissata al primo giugno 2020. Gli atti del simposio saranno pubblicati sulla raccolta open access “Lecture Notes in Civil Engineering” di Springer Nature.
Landslides represent a relevant problem for most of the countries overlooking the Mediterranean. This trivial consideration should prompt researchers, professionals, and stakeholders in this region to form closer relationships and engage themselves in a continuous exchange of data and ideas to find common strategies of landslide risk mitigation.
A common problem concerns the stability of slopes in hard fissured soils, weak rocks and flysch deposits, which are widespread all over the region, posing major problems to the development of these areas.
It is evident that the behaviour of such a wide and complex class of materials, spreading across large areas in this corner of the world, cannot be interpreted simply through the basic laws of the Soil or Rock Mechanics. With the goal in mind of urging people living on the Mediterranean to join their efforts, we decided to organize a Mediterranean Symposium on Landslides (MSL) in Napoli in June, 2021 hoping that this initiative will be the first of a series of similar periodic events.

Due to the drastic measures imposed at the local and international level to control the Coronavirus, the entry of foreigners to Colombia has been forbidden since the middle of March 2020 and most probably it will be very limited until the month of June 2020 and therefore we were forced to postpone the XIII International Symposium on Landslides to February 22-26, 2021.

l’emergenza causata dal diffondersi del contagio dal COVID-19 complica ogni giorno di più la nostra vita personale e lavorativa al punto da essere ormai costretti ad un isolamento domiciliare, che ci auguriamo possa presto terminare. In questo scenario, che ogni giorno diventa sempre più preoccupante e del quale non è facile stimare la durata, il Comitato Scientifico dell’evento e il Consiglio di Presidenza dell’AGI, avendo come priorità la sicurezza e la salute dei Soci e dei Colleghi che parteciperanno al prossimo XXVII CNG, hanno deciso di spostare l’evento al periodo 7-9 luglio del 2021 in modo da consentire ai partecipanti di vivere l’evento nella consueta atmosfera di serenità e cordialità che da sempre lo caratterizza.
Tutti gli autori delle memorie saranno contattati per essere informati circa le comunicazioni relative agli articoli presentati.

Due to the COV-19 outbreak in all European countries in the last weeks, in agreement with the Chair and the Secretary of the TC-106, E-UNSAT 2020 conference to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, will be postponed. The new dates have been fixed to October 19-21, 2020.
Postponing the conference was necessary to allow for safe travelling and enjoying the event. Hopefully this delay will be enough for the emergency to be over. Further information can be found at https://eunsat2020.tecnico.ulisboa.pt
The ALERT Workshop 2020 (31st Edition) will be held in Aussois from 28th to 30th September, 2020. Abstracts can be submitted to the three sessions. Please submit your abstracts by email directly to the coordinators using the Workshop abstract form (doc). If you wish to publish your presentation after the Workshop on the ALERT website, do not forget to agree by ticking the corresponding box in the abstract form.
Since time for the presentations is limited, only a part of the submitted abstracts can be chosen for the oral presentations. Therefore, we invite you to submit your abstract as soon as possible. The presentation can also be submitted as a poster. The abstracts of the posters will be published in a separate booklet (ISSN registered).
Deadline: 30th April 2020

La XX International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering si terrà a Sydney (Australia) nel periodo 12-17 settembre 2021.
Scadenza per l’invio dei sommari: 30 aprile 2020.
The theme of ICSMGE 2021 is “A Geotechnical Discovery Downunder – Geotechnical Diversity Awaits You”. Discover Australia and discover the innovation that lies where practical problems meet leading theoretical developments. ICSMGE 2021 will focus on the application of theory and the discovery that comes when world-class minds are focussed on the geotechnical problems facing our world. The conference program and technical sessions reflect this emphasis on applications, and are designed to trigger collaboration, innovation and discovery from a diverse group of participants.

The CONCREEP 11+ international conference will be held at Northwestern University (Illinois, USA) from the 15th to 17th of July 2020. Join us to learn about the latest cutting-edge research on creep and deterioration of concrete, rock, and soil. Note that this edition of the conference is extending the research scope from concrete to geomaterials in general, so any work related to the time-behaviour of geomaterial is welcome.
The program is organised around 5 tracks:
– Long-term material deterioration and healing
– Multiphysics and transport phenomena
– Time-dependent behavior at multiple length and time scales
– Large scale effects and in situ monitoring of time-dependent deformation
– Experimental characterization of creep and shrinkage
Please check the website https://www.concreep.org/concreep11 for further information and abstract submission (open until the 15th of January 2020).
The 4th European Conference on Physical Modelling in Geotechnics takes place from March 15th to 17th, 2020 in Luleå (Sweden). Abstract submission for full paper or extended abstract is open till December 8th, 2019. Contributions are due end of January.
Please check the website www.ltu.se/ecpmg for further information and registration.
