International Conference on Geotechnical Engineering Education @ The Acropolis Museum
The Conference GEE2020 has two priority themes (in addition to more typical education themes such as curricula, coursework and educational material) that include: (A) two-way interaction between industry and academia for co-production of educational material and curriculum development and (B) familiarizing young geotechnical faculty and late-stage PhD candidates with research-based good practices in engineering education. Priority theme (B) will be reinforced by awarding –on a competitive basis– the surplus of the conference to covering the expenses of young geotechnical engineering researchers participating in engineering education conferences.

The organizing committee of GEE2020 plans to set a standard for a “next generation” conference by opening it to remote participants through the internet. Invited presentations and panel discussions will be broadcasted with live streaming. In addition, some key lectures will be videotaped, edited and made available online. The design and the publicity of the conference aim to make it attractive to a critical mass of participants contributing papers and of active attendees. These features, together with publishing the proceedings online immediately after the conference, will maximize its impact.
