The Centre for Geomechanics and Railway Engineering and the Australian Geomechanics Society under the auspices of ISSMGE will be organising the International Conference on Ground Improvement and Ground Control: Transport Infrastructure Development and Natural Hazards Mitigation. The Conference will be held at the Innovation Campus of University of Wollongong, Australia, during October 30 - November 2, 2012. The Conference will be aimed at promoting ground improvement concepts and applications predominantly
in the fields of transportation geotechnology and natural hazards mitigation. This Conference will act as a platform to disseminate the most recent research and field advances to the geotechnical community around the globe and is expected to be the biggest Ground Improvement conference to be held in Australia. Outstanding keynote lectures, State of Art (SOA) presentations, heritage lectures and numerous technical discussions will contribute three days of scientific and technical discourse followed by attractive excursion encompassing the natural landscape of the south coast of New South Wales.
*Posters will be displayed for the whole duration of the Conference. All authors are asked to be alongside their poster during this time. The Poster Session is marketed as an opportunity for delegates to approach the author of the poster and ask questions or discuss any element of the information displayed.
*Posters must be no larger than A1 (841 mm high x 594 mm wide) portrait and poster presenters must provide their own Velcro ‘hooks’ to display the posters.
* Presenters must bring their poster with them to the Conference and advise the registration desk when they arrive.
