AYGEC 2018, Report de la date de recevabilité des contributions scientifiques

Chers Collègues,

Le Comité d’Organisation de la sixième  Conférence Africaine des Jeunes Ingénieurs en Géotechnique ( sous l’appellation anglaise AYGEC) a décidé de reporter la date limite de recevabilité des contributions scientifiques pour ladite conférence au 30 Avril 2018.
Veuillez en informer les membres de vos organisations ou sociétés et encouragez nos jeunes membres et collègues à soumettre leurs contributions scientifiques avant la date limite.
Nous recherchons les participants de toutes les sociétés ou organisations membres en Afrique.
Plus amples informations sur la conférence et la soumission des contributions scientifiques sont disponibles sur la brochure jointe à cette annonce,ainsi que sur le site web de la Société Soudanaise de Mécanique des Sols de Génie Geotechnique.

African Regional Conference 2019 – Abstract submissions

Submit your abstract now!

Hosted in one of the continent’s most iconic cities, this conference will serve practitioners, academics and students of all geotechnical backgrounds. The conference will take place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) offering world class conferencing facilities in the heart of South Africa’s mother city and will offer extensive opportunities for Technical Committee Meetings, Workshops, Seminars, Exhibitions and Sponsorships. Exciting Technical Visits, including tours to the famous Robben Island, await.

The 7th African Young Geotechnical Engineers’ Conference will take place on Sunday 6 October 2019, the day before the African Regional Conference (ARC). The YGE conference provides an approachable audience within a vibrant environment where young presenters under the age of 35 are encouraged to exercise their presentation and technical writing skills on a continental platform. More information about the African Young Geotechnical Engineers’ conference will be circulated shortly.

Seminar on Numerical Analysis in Geotechnics (NAG2018), on 22nd March 2018

 The Vietnamese Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (VSSMGE), the Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HCMUT) and the National Taiwan Univ of Science and Technology (NTUST) is going to organize the one-day seminar on Numerical Analysis in Geotechnics (NAG2018), on 22nd March 2018, in Ho Chi Minh City

A half-day site visit to HCMC Urban Railway Construction Project – Line 1 (Ben Thanh-Suoi Tien Section) will be held on the next day, 23rd March 2017. This is the second time the international seminar NAG is organized in Vietnam. The first event NAG2015 was held on 20 August 2015 in Hanoi, with more than 120 attendees from seven countries and territories, including Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, Canada, France, China and Vietnam.

I would like to send you the seminar NAG2018 second announcement. So far, the seminar organizing committee has received a number of abstracts of valuable papers and lectures, among which are:

  • “The important role of powerful numerical tools for highly qualified sustainable Construction in Geotechnical Engineering” by Prof. R. Katzenbach (Germany);
  • “Application of numerical methods in the design of deep excavation” by Prof. C.Y. Ou (Taiwan);
  • “Why 3D analysis is needed? Examples with Plaxis 3D” by Dr. William Cheang (Singapore) and Dr. Phung Duc Long (Vietnam);
  • “Numerical analysis of Mekong delta land subsidence and possible different views between geotechnical engineers and journalists on this matter” by Dr. Ph.H. Giao (Thailand).

Both papers in formal format and/or PPT presentations are accepted. They will be put in a CDROM. This allows persons who can not manage to write formal papers, but have good ideas, can join the seminar.

All the best,

Dr. Phung Duc Long,

President of Vietnamese Society for Soil Mechanics & Geotechnical Engineering
