The 18th International Conference on Soil Machanics and Geotechnical Engineering

Challenges and Innovations in Geotechnics
2–6 September 2013 – Paris, FR

The French Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (CFMS) is most happy to host the 18th International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (18th ICSMGE) in Paris, France.

The two first days will be devoted to plenary sessions, will include the Terzaghi Oration by Suzanne Lacasse, as well as 7 ISSMGE Honour lectures proposed by the TCs. The two following days, devoted to parallel sessions, will include Discussion Sessions and Workshops.

The Discussion Sessions are meant to discuss the papers sent to the Conference. It is planned to have 28 Discussion Sessions in total.

The Workshops will have a free format. They correspond to requests made by the TCs themselves (it is anticipated to have some 20 such Workshops).

The technical visits, as well as other activities, will be organised on the last day.

More than 770 papers have been received from 70 Member Societies.
