3rd International Conference on Information Technology in Geo-Engineering

September 29, 2019 – October 2, 2019 all-day
3rd International Conference on Information Technology in Geo-Engineering

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the organizing committee I am honoured to invite you to the 3rd International Conference on Information Technology in Geo-Engineering (3rd ICITG), which will be held in the City of Guimarães, (UNESCO World Heritage), Portugal from September 29 to October 2, 2019.

The 3rd ICITG is organized by the University of Minho and the Geotechnical Portuguese Society (SPG) in the framework of the activities of the Joint Technical Committee 2 (JTC2) on Representation of Geo-Engineering Data of the Federation of International Geo-Engineering Societies (FedIGS). FedIGS, is an umbrella organization linking international professional societies in the field of “Geo‐Engineering”: ISSMGE International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, ISRM International Society for Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering, IAEG International Association for Engineering Geology and the Environment, IGS International Geosynthetics Society.

This conference aims to address the most updated developments in information communication and technologies in geo-engineering. It covers the application to laboratory and field tests, as well as the monitoring and survey of geo-structures. It embraces also intelligent geomaterials, intelligent construction and all the related aspects with design, construction and maintenance of geo-structures.

Full-length papers submitted to the conference and accepted after a rigorous peer-review process will be included in the Conference Proceedings published by Springer Series in Geomechanics and Geoengineering and further submitted for indexing by Scopus and Web of Science.

Submission of abstracts/full-length papers are made only through the website: https://ocs.springer.com/misc/home/ICITG2019

In addition, authors can also submit full-length papers for special issues of the following journals:

Ø  Underground Space (https://www.journals.elsevier.com/underground-space)

Ø  Journal of Smart Infrastructure and construction (https://www.icevirtuallibrary.com/page/jsmic/promo)

With fascinating ancient traditions and modern lifestyle, the city of Guimarães will surely be the center of many unforgettable moments. We look forward to welcoming you in Guimarães!

On behalf of the organizing committee,

António Gomes Correia
