Joint Activites

The Presidents of the four Sister Societies, IAEG, ISRM , IGS and ISSMGE created a number of Joint Technical Committees and approved the JTC Guidelines. These JTCs operate now under the umbrella of the Federation of International Geo-engineering Societies – FedIGS.

These JTCs are: JTC 1 – Natural Slopes and Landslides, JTC 2 – Representation of Geo-engineering Data and JTC 3 – Education and Training

JTC1 - Natural Slopes and Landslides

The goal of JTC1 is to contribute and strengthen the cooperation between the international geo-engineering societies and their members in the development of the science of natural soil and rock slope behavior including landslide triggering and evolution.

JTC1 organizes conferences, workshops and symposia including the International Symposia on Landslides (ISLs) open to all who practice in soil mechanics, rock mechanics, engineering geology, mining engineering, geomorphology and geography.

JTC1 prepares papers, documents and guidelines for implementation of new developments into general practice.

JTC3 - Education and Training

JTC3 is a Joint Technical Committee on education and training of the Federation of International Geo-engineering Societies (FedIGS) representing the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM) , International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) , International Association for Engineering Geology and the Environment (IAEG) , and International Geosynthetics Society (IGS) .

The goal of JTC3 is to contribute to broad cooperation between international geo-engineering societies and their members in teaching, training, and outreach facilities. JTC3 addresses education (institution educators, graduate, and undergraduate students) and industry.
