The Local Organising Committee (LOC) for the 20th International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ICSMGE) wishes to advise some important Conference changes. These changes, made in response to the global Covid-19 situation, were taken after discussion and with the approval of the ISSMGE Board. We would like to thank the Board Members for their wisdom and understanding in these difficult circumstances.
The 20th ICSMGE will be held in Sydney from 1st to 5th of May 2022.
- Technical sessions and other Conference activities will be delivered on-site in Sydney on the scheduled dates and we will also deliver most sessions virtually. Conference delegates will be able to register to attend either in-person on-site, or virtually via the Conference registration portal.
- The hybrid model ensures that all authors of accepted papers will have the opportunity to present, even if they are not able to travel to Sydney. Furthermore, for the very first time in the 85 years history of ISSMGE, all 21,000 individual members will have the opportunity to access the huge range of technical content presented on-line at ICSMGE 2022 - a remarkable opportunity for individuals to be part of this premier event!
- At the same time as ensuring accessibility to the Conference for a global audience on-line, we are planning an exciting in-person program for those who will travel to Sydney. If you can make it in-person, you will participate in the virtual sessions alongside colleagues around the world AND have access to additional technical sessions, site visits, exhibitions and social functions dedicated to the in-person registrants. A range of exciting events is planned, extending Australian hospitality and making this a memorable event for all involved.
