Interactive Technical Talks

This section is a new educational initiative by the president of ISSMGE. The ISSMGE Interactive Technical Talks (IITT) bring together geo professionals from around the world, young and renowned, from both the academia and the industry, to discuss a certain subject of geotechnical engineering. The president is the moderator and the main speaker would be a renowned geotechnical engineer, usually a leader from the corresponding ISSMGE Technical Committee. Any young engineer could ask to be part of this series by emailing directly to the president ([email protected]) or the IITT team, mentioning their field of expertise, the corresponding TC number, and be ready to prepare 3 or 4 slides presenting their know-how in the subject with the challenges that they are facing in their geographical area or environment.
