International Symposium on Environmental Geotechnology, Energy and Global Sustainable Development
The XII International Symposium on Environmental Geotechnology, Energy and Global Sustainable Development will be unlike any symposium you have ever attended. The goal is to develop concrete strategies through participant interaction, networking and lively discussions that advance global sustainability in the areas of environmental geotechnology and energy. We hope that by the end of the symposium, participants will not only be inspired, but also take home solid ideas on what needs to be done collectively and individually as researchers, policy makers and teachers. The symposium dynamics will facilitate fruitful exchange of ideas among participants as we work on “Unveiling the Pathways to Global Sustainability”.
Symposium participants are encouraged to submit an abstract and a paper, and to present full or partial results of their research during poster sessions. The Symposium will also recognize the work of young researchers through a Student Poster Session and Award. While poster sessions will allow for research presentation and interaction between participants, panels will enable lively discussion and interaction between participants on key sustainability issues within the thematic areas of the Symposium. These panels will focus on laying out specific long-term sustainability targets for the different research areas, and defining short-term practical action plans to be pursued individually and collective.
