International Symposium on Energy Geotechnics

International Symposium on Energy Geotechnics


International Symposium on Energy Geotechnics (SEG) is organized every four years under the auspices of the Technical Committee on Energy Geotechnics (TC-308) of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE). The upcoming edition of the symposium series, SEG-2018, will be held at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), with the Laboratory of Soil Mechanics (LMS) serving as the local organizing committee. 

Keynote lectures from the most prominent researchers and practitioners in the field, state-of-the-art lectures and technical sessions focusing on the task forces of TC-308 and discussion sessions for compiling the contributions of the day will be a part of SEG-2018.

Contributions on various topics related to the energy geotechnics field including carbon sequestration, energy geostructures, hydraulic fractured sediments, nuclear waste deposits and many more are encouraged in the scope of SEG-2018.

Researchers working on these challenging topics are invited to present their most recent advances. Practitioners are invited to share their experience on various topics of energy geotechnics where presentations on case studies are strongly encouraged. Moreover, SEG-2018 puts an emphasis on discussing innovative ideas and highly encourages the presentation of patents and start-ups in the broad spectrum of energy geotechnics. 

Full papers will be included in the proceedings of the symposium published by Springer and indexed in Scopus and SpringerLink.
