2nd International Symposium on Asia Urban GeoEngineering

2nd International Symposium on Asia Urban GeoEngineering


Extensively urban construction is going on in Asian countries,environmental friendliness and sustainability are emphasized in modern urbanization processes. Environmental friendliness addresses the control of ground movement, mitigation measures and risk management. Those control or mitigation measures should be sustainable. Moreover, the performance of deep excavation and tunnels, mitigation measures and risk management are often site dependent and vary from country to country. The ground conditions, construction practices, codes and standards are very different among Asian countries. The aim of this symposium is to share knowledge and experiences of the analysis, design, construction and maintenance of urban geoengineering among engineers, researchers and academia professors in Asian countries


Topics shall include:
• Fundamental behavior and constitutive model of geomaterials;
• Excavation engineering;
• Tunnelling;
• Urban environmental geotechnical problems and disaster effects;
• Risk and safety assessment, management and control in urban geoengineering;
• Design standards of deep excavation among Asian countries



You are warmly invited to attend the 2nd International Symposium on Asia Urban GeoEngineering on November 24-27, 2017 in Changsha, a historical and modern city in Hunan, China. The aim of this syumposium is to share ideas and expericens about urban geoengineeringin Asian countries among engineers, researchers and academia professor. The empahais will be on improving our knowledged in meeting geoengineering requirements for long-term sustainable urban development and the need to protect and preserve our environment. We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you all to Changsha.

Call for abstracts
The abstract should be written in English and should clearly explain the contents of the studies discussed. The abstract(no more than 800 words) must include the title of the paper, authors, affiliation of authors, e-mail address of corresponding author, 4-5 keywords and the text in English. The content of the full papers submitted should be scientific, advanced, innovative, and must not have been published in any academic journals or reported in any academic meetings. Please send it to our official mailbox: urban_geoeng@163.com with your telephone number. The author of the selected paper will be invited to make an oral presentation on the 2nd-ISAUG. Accepted papers will be published in "Proceeding of 2nd International Symposium on AsiaUrban GeoEngineering", and the selected papers after peer-review will be recommended to be published in Journal of Zhejiang University-SCIENCE A (Applied Physics & Engineering).
