invite you to the 2019 Southeast Symposium of Recent
Developments in Geotechnics,which will be held on 7th –
9th July 2019 at Southeast University, Nanjing, Jiangsu,
P.R. China. This is the third event of the series, which
was launched in 2017 as part of School of Civil
Engineering’s initiative to develop into an
internationally leading institute. The events have been
featured with latest research exchange and scholarly
debates in an open atmosphere for which we are indebted
to our excellent participants from the top universities
and leading geotechnical institutes all over the world.
On chosen themes, the events bridged the gap between
fundamental research and geotechnical applications by
bringing academics and practitioners in the same room
and talking to each other. We are also glad that the
past two events served successfully the international
and domestic recruitments by attracting competent
academic staff to join us and to strengthen and
complement our existing capacities.
The 2019 Southeast
Symposium will be another friendly gathering for
research communication of fundamental and applied
geotechnical research, to explore new scientific
frontiers and new ideas, and to develop strategic and
collaborative plans to tackle real world challenges in
energy, environment and sustainability. This year the
symposium will be organized by a number of Southeast
volunteers together with interested external experts. It
is planned to be a one-session event with around 60-80
attendees. Each speaker will have at least 20 minutes
equally (no plenary talks!). As usual, this event will
take place in sequence with the National Postgraduate
Summer School in Civil Engineering (1st – 7th July).
Opportunities to interact with summer school students
for potential recruitment will be available.
The 2019 SEU
symposium welcomes contributions from all areas of
geomechanics and geotechnical engineering, including but
not limited to the following: “Frontier &
Cross-disciplinary Geotechnics”, “Soil Dynamics and
Earthquake Engineering”, “Underground Space Technology”
and “Sustainable Geotechnics”. Talks will be organised
into these themed sessions to promote focused
discussions. A number of travel grants will be available
for international travellers. Potential participants are
highly encouraged to apply at early convenience.
Look forward to welcoming you in Nanjing.
