International Conference on Geotechnical Engineering Education (GEE 2020) ONLINE, June 23-25, 2020

Following the unprecedented changes in our personal and professional lives due to Covid-19 and after careful consideration and evaluation of the risks and alternatives, the Organizing Committee of the International Conference on Geotechnical Engineering Education (GEE 2020), in consultation with paper authors and presenters, opted for a "Virtual Conference" with features that can become in the future staples of regular conferences.
