Turkish Chamber of Civil Engineers Istanbul Branch invites all civil engineers to the 8th International Geotechnical Symposium. Our goal is to provide an international stage for the discussion and evaluation of the scientific and technological developments, knowledge, know-how, and daily increasing and diversifying experiences within geotechnical specialty considering both scientific and professional perspectives. With the scientific platform we intend to establish, our aim is to foster stronger communication and interaction, to discuss possible alleys of contribution and to identify the subjects that would enable a more active cooperation between the academy and the industry. Todays constant need for innovation necessitates the alignment of the academy-industry cooperation around the focus of research and design.
Towards these goals, the selections of the invited lecturers, symposium topics, and acceptance of papers will be done with utmost care. No effort will be spared towards the realization of a synergetic and efficient symposium setting. However, it is the active and interactive contribution of a large audience and the scientific and technical quality of the papers that determine the actual accomplishment of a symposium.
Geotechnical Symposiums are favored by our colleagues for their high standards and scientific contents. The 8th International Geotechnical Symposium is organized with the same sensibilities and intends to set the bar ever higher. We invite you to contribute to this exciting and productive event and to benefit from the professional opportunities provided.
