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.
Call for abstracts:
The Organizing Committee of the 7th ICEGE invites all interested geotechnical professionals and academics to submit abstracts for the conference.
All abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee and, if accepted, the author/s will be asked to submit a full paper which will be assigned to the appropriate session based on the author’s application and program requirements.
Abstracts submission deadline: 7 May 2018.
We invite authors to submit abstracts in time, this will help to conclude the review process in due time, thus avoiding delays of the whole editorial process.
Abstracts must be written in English
All abstracts must be submitted only via the online submission system.
Authors must fill out all abstract details and authors’ information following the online abstract submission procedure. Each abstract must include the paper title, authors’ names, affiliations and e-mail addresses. Submitting authors will be asked to select at least two topics among the list proposed for the conference.
It is advised to prepare an ‘offline draft’ to help the online submission by copying and pasting the required fields (title, authors, affiliations, emails, reference conference topics, text).
The maximum number of words for the text is 400. Title, authors, affiliations, emails and topics will not be counted in the 400 word limit. Figures and tables are not permitted. References are not necessary.
Acknowledgment of submission will be sent to the e-mail address provided by the submitting author. Please make sure that a confirmation e-mail is received after making the submission. If this e-mail confirmation is not received, it means we have not received the abstract.
It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure the accuracy of the abstract.
At least one author of each accepted paper must register to the conference. A paper fee of 100,00 Euros must be paid for any additional paper submitted by the same author. Any additional co-authored paper can be submitted by another registered co-author or, as an alternative, a paper fee of 100,00 Euros must be paid for each additional co-authored paper. Accepted papers will be included in the digital conference proceedings, provided the registration fee, or paper fee is paid.
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).
