7th International Young Geotechnical Engineers Conference

7th International Young Geotechnical Engineers Conference


In 2022, the global community of soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering practitioners will come together in Sydney, Australia for the 20th International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ICSMGE). For the 7th time, young geotechnical practitioners will have the opportunity to meet at their own dedicated Conference on the days immediately prior to the ICSMGE in a relaxed, friendly and supportive environment to share their research, ideas and experience, build international networks and discuss the challenges facing young geotechnical engineers in a rapidly changing world.

Our Conference will be held at the International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour, Sydney over the three days prior to the ICSMGE giving delegates the opportunity to remain in Sydney for the main Conference.

This Conference seeks to provide a relaxed and supportive environment for young geotechnical engineers to present at their first major Conference with all delegates given the opportunity to present. We will have a particular focus on sustainability and on issues facing young geotechnical professionals beyond 2022.

The organising committee look forward to welcoming you to the 7th International Young Geotechnical Engineers Conference in 2022.
