CREST2020 – 1st International Symposium on Construction Resources for Environmentally Sustainable Technologies – March 10-12, 2020, Fukuoka (Japan)

The first International Symposium on Construction Resources for Environmentally Sustainable Technologies (CREST2020) will be held from March 10 to 12, 2020 in Fukuoka, Japan (Nishijin Plaza, Kyushu University).

The Organizing Committee calls for abstract  submissions. Abstracts must be submitted only via the online system of the symposium before September 15, 2019.

The purpose of this symposium is to disseminate information and exchange ideas on issues related to natural and man-made disasters, and to arrive at solutions through the use of alternative resources, towards building a sustainable and resilient society from geotechnical perspectives.
The symposium aims to bring together scientist, researchers, engineers and policy makers throughout the world under one umbrella for debate and discussion. The symposium will be focusing on sustainability, promotion of new ideas and innovations in design, construction and maintenance of geotechnical structures with aim of contributing towards climate change adaptation and disaster resiliency.

Two positions of Assistant Professor at Delft University of Technology

1) Applications are invited for an Assistant Professor of Geo-Monitoring and Data Analytics (tenure track). The position is proposed to develop advanced knowledge of the response of geostructures from data analytics, and improve current life-cycle design and assessment models. This requires an understanding of how climate change and increasing demographic pressure impact the life cycle of critical geostructures, and of how to extract relevant geotechnical information from multi-year and multiscale data streams.
The closing date for applications is 7 October 2019.

2) Applications are invited for an Assistant Professor of Geotechnical Uncertainty (tenure track). The position is proposed to investigate soil mechanical material behaviour accounting for uncertainties relating to, for example, measurements, statistics, transformation from measured to derived properties, and external (including environmental) loadings. It takes into consideration the random, spatial and systematic components of uncertainty, as well as uncertainties relating to the cross-correlations of material properties and multi-physical couplings, and develops new solutions to better control and reduce the geotechnical uncertainty and risk in geotechnical assessments and construction processes.
The closing date for applications is 7 October 2019.

Avviso MIUR “Potenziamento delle Infrastrutture di Ricerca” – Esperti valutatori – REPRISE

Sul sito MIUR è stato pubblicato l’avviso “Potenziamento delle Infrastrutture di Ricerca” – Esperti valutatori – REPRISE, all’indirizzo: .

Considerata la necessità di nominare i revisori “in itinere” per i progetti finanziati con il bando sul “Potenziamento delle Infrastrutture di Ricerca”, tutti i ricercatori con comprovata esperienza in questo campo sono invitati ad iscriversi o ad aggiornare i propri profili sul sito degli esperti valutatori della Ricerca (REPRISE –

La presenza nel database è essenziale per individuare anche gli esperti valutatori “in itinere” delle proposte progettuali finanziate. Nell’iscriversi o nell’aggiornare i profili, il MIUR invita i ricercatori a inserire le parole chiave “Infrastrutture di ricerca” ed almeno una fra “ENERGY”, “ENVIRONMENT”, “HEALTH & FOOD”, “PHYSICAL SCIENCES & ENGINEERING”, “SOCIAL & CULTURAL INNOVATION”, “E-RIs”.


Il GNIG (Gruppo Nazionale di Ingegneria Geotecnica) si propone di promuovere il coordinamento delle attività di ricerca e di formazione nel Settore Scientifico Disciplinare ICAR07 – 08/B1 ‘Geotecnica’, di curare le relazioni con gli altri Settori Scientifico Disciplinari, con gli Organi di Governo dell’Università e con le Associazioni Scientifiche e Culturali del Settore.
