9th European Conference on Numerical Methods in Geotechnical Engineering

9th European Conference on Numerical Methods in Geotechnical Engineering


The European Regional Technical Committee ERTC7, on Numerical Methods in Geotechnical Engineering, organizes a series of conferences under the auspices of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE). The first conference was held in 1986 in Stuttgart, Germany, and the series has continued every four years: Santander, Spain (1990); Manchester, United Kingdom (1994); Udine, Italy (1998); Paris, France (2002); Graz, Austria (2006); Trondheim, Norway (2010); Delft, The Netherlands (2014).
The aim of these conferences is to provide an international forum for exchange of ideas and discussion on topics related to the application of numerical methods in geotechnical engineering. Senior and young researchers, scientists and engineers from Europe and overseas are warmly invited to share and exchange their knowledge and experiences relating to scientific achievements, innovations and engineering applications related to, or employing, numerical methods.
