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.
La trentesima edizione del Convegno Nazionale Geosintetici, organizzata dalla Sezione Italiana dell’International Geosynthetics Society (AGI-IGS), si terrà a Bologna il 22 ottobre 2020 nel tradizionale ambito SAIE e sarà dedicata al tema “Prestazioni dei materiali e delle opere”. Il convegno vuole celebrare l’ormai consolidato ruolo dei geosintetici nell’ingegneria moderna con un programma scientifico incentrato sulle prestazioni dei materiali e delle opere, attraverso contributi che mettano in luce il ruolo della comunità scientifica italiana pioniera della ricerca nel binomio Geosintetici-Geotecnica.
Scadenza presentazione abstract: 10 Gennaio 2020
Participants are welcome to submit abstracts for a special session during the 18th International Probabilistic Workshop, to be held at University of Minho in Guimarães (Portugal) on September 23-25, 2020. This special session strives to highlight recent advances in geotechnical reliability and thereby to further advance the uptake of reliability methods in practical applications.
XIII International Symposium on Landslides – Cartagena (Colombia) – Deadline extension for paper submission
In association with the Joint Technical Committee on Natural Slopes and Landslides (JTC1) and the Federation of International Geo-engineering Societies: ISSMGE, ISRM and IAEG (FedIGS), the Colombian Geotechnical Society (CGS) cordially invites the international geotechnical community to participate in XIII ISL: http://www.scg.org.co/xiii-isl/index.html
A call for papers is currently underway. The deadline for submission of papers has been extended to February 17, 2020. Previously, no later than February 14, full manuscripts (4 to 8 pages in length, abstract included) shall be submitted to the conference organizing committee through the ISSMGE’s Conference Review Platform: https://www.issmge.org/publications/review-platform/conferences/isl2020 .

Vi segnaliamo, nell’ambito della EGU General Assembly 2020 (Vienna, 3-8 maggio 2020), la sessione sulla geotermia superficiale per il condizionamento degli edifici.
La sessione ERE 2.8, intitolata Shallow geothermal systems for building heating and cooling: geoscience and engineering approaches, è coordinata da Giorgia Dalla Santa (Università di Padova), Witold Bogusz (Polish Building Research Institute, Warsaw), Francesco Cecinato (Università di Milano), Fleur Loveridge (University of Leeds) e Donatella Sterpi (Politecnico di Milano). È possibile presentare entro il 15 gennaio 2020 un sommario a cui farà seguito una presentazione orale o tramite poster, da tenere nell’ambito della sessione durante il convegno.
The session welcomes contributions about shallow geothermal energy applications, including traditional closed- and open-loop borehole heat exchangers as well as so-called energy geostructures (e.g. thermo-active foundations, walls, tunnels).
Different types of analysis and approaches are relevant to this session, spanning from the evaluation of ground thermal properties to the mapping of shallow geothermal potential, from energy storage and district heating to sustainability issues and consequences of the geothermal energy use, from the design of new heat exchangers and installation techniques to the energy and thermo-(hydro-) mechanical performance of energy geostructures. Contributions based on experimental, analytical and numerical modelling are welcome as well as interventions about legislative aspects.

Vi segnaliamo, nell’ambito della EGU General Assembly 2020 (Vienna, 3-8 maggio 2020), la sessione NH4.3 sulla Microzonazione Sismica, coordinata da Giovanni Forte con Hans-Balder Havenith e Filippo Santucci de Magistris. È possibile presentare entro il 15 gennaio 2020 un sommario a cui farà seguito una presentazione durante l’Incontro, nelle sessioni orali o tramite poster.
This session is focused on the ‘hazard’ part of seismic microzonation (SM), concerning the classical approaches and the case studies for:
– Subsoil investigation and characterization for SM mapping;
– Multi-level SM mapping;
– Evaluation of seismic site response (1D-2D-3D);
– Assessment of seismic-induced landslides,
– Analyses on Soil liquefaction.
Innovative contributions on soil non-linearity and damping, seismic monitoring and hazard assessment effects are also welcome.
