After the increasingly successful conferences held in Tokyo (1995), Lisbon (1999), Berkeley (2004), Thessaloniki (2007), Santiago (2011), and Christchurch (2015), the Italian Geotechnical Society (AGI) on appointment by the ISSMGE Technical Committee 203 (‘Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering and associated problems’) is delighted to announce that the city of Rome will host the 7th ICEGE (International Conference on Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering) in June 2019.
As in the previous editions, the conference topics will address through general and parallel sessions the most recent developments in earthquake geotechnical engineering, stimulating fruitful technical and scientific interaction with the fields of seismology, geophysics, geology, structural and infrastructural engineering.
The ‘eternal city’ of Rome is one of the most attractive and symbolic venues in the world, thanks to its impressive cultural heritage, the pleasant weather, its extraordinary social life, not to mention the taste of the Italian food.
Transportation to and through Rome is very effective thanks to two International Airports, high-speed railways and underground city trains.
Rome can count on a variety of accommodation facilities to host the conference delegates, from Luxury hotels to B&Bs.
Pre- and/or post-conference events will also be planned, including technical visits to sites affected by historical to most recent earthquakes.
The first Bulletin is expected to be delivered at the 3rd International Conference on Performance Based Design in Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering, in Vancouver, BC, Canada from July 16-19, 2017.
