On September 10th, GEER (Geotechnical Extreme Events Reconnaissance Association Turning Disaster into Knowledge – Sponsored by the U.S. National Science Foundation) will be holding a webinar with members of the Steering Committee acting as moderators.
This webinar will consist of several elements as follows:
(15 minutes) – Introduction to webinar series – Dr. Youssef Hashash
(45 minutes) – Introduction to GEER – Dr. David Frost
(30 minutes) – GEER Activities Q&A Panel Session – All participants
The webinar is completely free, but requires registration in advance. Please see the attachment for the registration link and more information regarding panel members and topics to be discussed.

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.
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.
