3rd International Conference on Natural Hazards & Infrastructure, 22 – 24 June 2021, Athens (Greece)
La terza International Conference on Natural Hazards & Infrastructure (ICONHIC2021) è prevista per il 22-24 giugno 2021 ad Atene (Grecia).
Il Comitato Scientifico ricorda che la scadenza della call for abstracts è il 25 ottobre 2020, nell’auspicio che la conferenza si tenga come da programma a giugno 2021 ad Atene o venga tutt’al più rinviata al 2022 in caso di impedimenti dovuti al COVID-19.

Founded in 2016, the conference emerged in response to the ever-growing need for a landmark event that will gather together a broad field of expertise, aiming to prevent and reduce the risk of extreme natural events and their aftermaths on infrastructure. Sponsored by international industrial partners and institutions, who worked hand-in-hand with the academia to deliver an event that fosters collaboration between different stakeholders, ICONHIC2016 and ICONHIC2019 attracted a large number of attendees from all over the world, coming from exceptionally diverse technical or business backgrounds, with one overarching goal: to prepare within the constantly changing and highly uncertain environmental conditions and develop future-ready societies, able to reduce risk & manage disruption.
Following its evolution philosophy, the ICONHIC 2021 edition ventures the step forward: to build upon facilitative dialogue and strong synergies and propose an informed and realistic course of action against catastrophic natural events.
In addition to our previous communication in which we announced the postponement of the XIII International Symposium on Landslides – XIII ISL for the week of February 22nd to 26th – 2021, taking into account how the Covid-19 pandemic has been evolving, with great severity in the American Continent, in common agreement with JTC1 and the authorities of ISSMGE, ISRM, IAEG and FedIGS, it has been decided to change the modality of this important event from presential to virtual.
The virtual event includes the presentation of the ten illustrious Keynote speakers originally invited, who have reaffirmed their support, and the participation of most of the authors of the short articles presented by colleagues from more than 30 countries around the world.
The corresponding program, including the detail of its activity, will be available on the Symposium’s website in the coming days. We look forward to your participation.

5th International Workshop on Rock Mechanics and Engineering Geology in Volcanic Fields – September 9-11, 2021 Fukuoka, Japan
Il 5th International Workshop on Rock Mechanics and Engineering Geology in Volcanic Fields si terrà a Fukuoka (Giappone) nel settembre 2021. Promosso dalle Associazioni Internazionali ISRM e IAEG, segue l’analogo Workshop svolto ad Ischia nel settembre 2015.
On behalf of the Japanese Society for Rock Mechanics and the Japan Society of Engineering Geology, the Organizing Committe is pleased to hold “RMEGV2021: 5th International Workshop on Rock Mechanics and Engineering Geology in Volcanic Fields”.
The goals of this workshop are to promote the exchange of ideas and information among civil engineers and geologists regarding serious issues related to volcanic fields, and to find possible solutions to them, as well as to aid in the fusion of Civil Engineering and Geology in terms of applied volcanic science, including construction, environment, groundwater, disasters, and geothermal energy. Many resources can be found in the vicinity of volcanic fields, such as hydro-geothermal energy and groundwater. On the other hand, many natural disasters and other risks to infrastructure construction also exist due to the geoscientific and geotechnical features in these areas. Thus, civil engineers and engineering geologists strive to solve these problems based on the existing data on volcanic fields.
The themes of this workshop include volcanic geology, disasters and their mitigation, resources and energy in volcanic fields, mechanical behavior of volcanic rocks and soils, groundwater and environmental problems in volcanic fields, and geotechnical engineering in volcanic fields. It is our hope that many researchers/engineers involved in applied volcanic science will attend this workshop from all over the world, participate in deeply meaningful discussions, and create new global research connections.
Si comunica che sono state aperte le iscrizioni alla trentesima edizione del Convegno Nazionale Geosintetici, organizzata dalla Sezione Italiana dell’International Geosynthetics Society (AGI-IGS) e che si terrà a Bologna il 15 ottobre 2020. 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.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and after careful consideration, the Bureau and the BoD have decided to cancel the ALERT workshop in 2020 (it will take place in 2021 from September 27 to September 29), but the Doctoral School, the PhD Prize as well as the Invited Lecture will take place online.
The doctoral E-School on “Point based numerical methods in geomechanics” is organized by Pr. Manolo Pastor and Pr. Wei Wu. It will take place remotely every morning from September 28th to October 1st.
The PhD prize and the Invited Lecture will take place remotely on Tuesday September 29th, from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm (CET) for the ALERT PhD prize 2020 and from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm (CET) for the Invited lecturer, Pr. Chris Spiers.
All these events are free of charge, but the registration is mandatory (deadline for the registration is the September 18th). Please read the hints in the Registration form: after filling the form and pressing the button “Register”, you will get an email with the registration data.
Deadline: 18th September 2020

tra meno di un mese, nei giorni 23-25 Giugno 2020, si svolgerà la Conferenza GEE2020 – International Conference on Geotechnical Engineering Education, che include la presentazione della seconda John Burland Lecture oltre a 2 keynote lectures, 3 invited lectures, 2 panel discussions e 7 sessioni tematiche in cui verranno presentati 23 articoli (https://www.erasmus.gr/microsites/1168/overview).
GEE2020 sarà la prima edizione della serie di conferenze organizzate dal TC 306 dell’ISSMGE ad essere svolta interamente online. Pur non negando gli indubbi svantaggi di una conferenza in cui i partecipanti non possono incontrarsi e confrontarsi dal vivo, ci sono alcuni altrettanto indubbi vantaggi di questo formato sperimentale (ed emergenziale) di GEE2020, tra cui: costi molto contenuti, che quindi consentono la partecipazione anche a coloro che hanno voglia di esplorare il mondo della “geotechnical engineering education”; possibilità di decidere le partecipazione a pochi giorni dall’inizio dell’evento, visto che non è necessario organizzare una missione all’estero.
Le modalità di partecipazione sono due (https://www.erasmus.gr/microsites/1168/registration):
· Interactive participant, quota di iscrizione 220 €, che consente la partecipazione alle sessioni di Q&A, al forum virtuale oltre che l’accesso alle presentazioni della conferenza fino al 15 Luglio.
· View-only participant, quota di iscrizione 50 €, che consente di vedere lo streaming in diretta di tutta la conferenza, incluso le sessioni di Q&A e le discussioni di panel.
Per i più GIOVANI (meno di 40 anni alla data di inizio della conferenza) c’è la possibilità di partecipare al AVAX-TC306 Prize for young geotechnical engineering educators, ovvero un premio di 2000 € per la partecipazione in presenza ad una futura “engineering education conference” a scelta (SCADENZA 19 Giugno 2020, https://www.erasmus.gr/microsites/1168/the-avax-tc306-prize).
Sperando di aver rinnovato o suscitato il vostro interesse per la partecipazione a GEE2020… vi aspetto online.
Un caro saluto a tutti,
(co-Chair di GEE2020)
