We are delighted to open the call for abstracts for CPEG2020, the “Third International Symposium on Coupled Phenomena in Environmental Geotechnics”, which will be held at Kyoto University’s main campus on October 29th and 30th, 2020.

CPEG is a quadrennial event organized under the auspices of the Technical Committee TC215 (Environmental Geotechnics) of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE), with a focus on coupled processes (e.g., chemical-physical, bio-physical, multiphase flow, etc.) in environmental geotechnics. You can find a list of the symposium themes, and some examples, at

The first symposium of the series was held in Torino (Italy) in 2013, and the second one in Leeds (UK) in 2017.

The third symposium, CPEG2020, will be conjointly organized by the Japanese Geotechnical Society (JGS) and Kyoto University, and welcomes submissions from all over the world.

The deadline for abstract submissions is November 30th, 2019, and we invite you to submit yours using the ISSMGE Conference Review Platform:

As in our previous symposiums, we look forward to your contributions to CPEG2020 and to meet with you in Kyoto, the Ancient Capital of Japan, next year, for what we expect to be a vibrant scientific event!

Thank you.

Chair of CPEG2020
