Launch of new ISSMGE website

Date: 30th September 2016

Dear colleagues,  

It is a pleasure to announce the launch of the new ISSMGE website.

The new website is a major development that thrusts ISSMGE deeper into the digital era. It is an initiative nurtured by the Innovation and Development Committee, that was supported by many other committees throughout the ISSMGE.  

The new website has a more appealing, modern, layout, more valuable content and an improved website design architecture that provides enhanced functionality. The navigation bar has been updated so that it can better communicate the many activities of our organization. Just to highlight some of them:

  • Under “Publications”, the “Online Library” includes a collection of 3,450 papers that are all available directly for download and include a number of conference proceedings, including the Osaka (16th), Alexandria (17th) and Paris (18th) International Conferences on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering. This database is expected to significantly grow in future years. It has been one of the main reasons for designing this new website. It is perceived as the tool needed in order to implement the open access policy of the ISSMGE!   
  • Under “Media”, a truly unique collection of 28 webinars and honour lectures are immediately available for you to view online.
  • There are also sub-websites for each of the TCs, the Young Members Presidential Group (YMPG), and the Corporate Associates Presidential Group (CAPG). These websites will now be operated directly by the Committees and Groups themselves, and news from these committees and groups will be automatically promoted through the main page of the ISSMGE website.

We hope you find the new website, informative, useful… and fun! We encourage you to send us any feedback you wish to provide about the current website as well as ideas about future initiatives.  

On behalf of the ISSMGE,

Roger Frank, President of ISSMGE
