7th ICEGE (International Conference on Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering)
After the increasingly successful conferences held in Tokyo (1995), Lisbon (1999), Berkeley (2004), Thessaloniki (2007), Santiago (2011), and Christchurch (2015), the Italian Geotechnical Society (AGI) on appointment by the ISSMGE Technical Committee 203 (‘Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering and associated problems’) is delighted to announce that the city of Roma will host the 7th ICEGE (International Conference on Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering) in June 2019.
As in the previous editions, the conference topics will address through general and parallel sessions the most recent developments in earthquake geotechnical engineering, stimulating fruitful technical and scientific interaction with the fields of seismology, geophysics, geology, structural and infrastructural engineering.
Among the various topics, there is also this one: Ground improvement, reinforced soil structures and geosynthetics, of particular interest for IGS members.
The ‘eternal city’ of Roma is one of the most attractive and symbolic venues in the world, thanks to its impressive cultural heritage, the pleasant weather, its extraordinary social life, not to mention the taste of the Italian food.
Transportation to and through Roma is very effective thanks to two International Airports, high-speed railways and underground city trains.
Roma can count on a variety of accommodation facilities to host the conference delegates, from Luxury hotels to B&Bs.
Pre- and/or post-conference events are also planned, including technical visits to sites affected by historical to most recent earthquakes.
On July 27, 2018 the results of almost 1.100 abstract reviews have been sent to all authors.
Authors are now invited to submit papers in due time, this will help to conclude the papers review avoiding delays of the whole editorial process.
At least one author of each accepted paper must register to the conference. Papers without at least one registered author will not be published. Each registration fee allows to publish only one (1) manuscript. Additional accepted papers can be published with an extra paper fee of 100.00 Euros per manuscript. Accepted papers will be included in the digital conference proceedings, provided the registration fee, or paper fee is paid. Payments must be made online at the registration page. Registration will be enabled by September 2018.
USB Card Proceedings will be published by CRC Press / Balkema, Taylor & Francis Group. Since we are aware of the importance, for academics and authors, of the indexing of their works, the Editor will send the Proceedings to the indexing services (Scopus, EI and Compendex).
Questions regarding the paper review process, sessions and the technical program should be directed to the 7ICEGE Organizing Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org
