2nd International Symposium on Coastal and Offshore Geotechnics (ISCOG 2017) & 2nd International Conference on Geo-Energy and Geo-Environment (GeGe2017)
Two crucial global challenges facing the 21st century are exploration of energy (including offshore wind and deep-water methane hydrate) and management of geo-environment, both of which are essential for building a sustainable future. To provide a platform for sharing scientific breakthroughs in sustainable geotechnical solutions to energy production and geo-environment management, Zhejiang University has successfully organized the 1st International Symposium on Coastal and Offshore Geotechnics (ISCOG 2012) in Hangzhou, and jointly organized the 1st International Conference on Geo-Energy and Geo-Environment (GeGe2015) with the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
Considering the two international conferences are highly complementary, we are arranging the 2nd ISCOG & GeGe events in parallel in 2017 at Zhejiang University (China), with the specific aim of enhancing multi-disciplinary interactions in the areas related to energy and geo-environment management. This combined event (ISCOG2017 & GeGe2017) is supported by the ISSMGE. In the conference, two parallel programmes will be offered, but also with substantial common plenary sessions and keynotes by prominent speakers.
The presentations will include a re-run of the 2016 Rankine Lecture by Professor Richard Jardine from Imperial College, as well as a re-run of the 2017 Terzaghi Lecture by Professor Kerry Rowe from Queen's University.
Authors of selected papers will be inivited to extend their abstracts to full papers, for consideration of publication in a special issue in Journal of Zhejiang University-Science A (SCI indexed, IF=0.941).
