Symposium Themes

CPEG2020 will be organized under the following themes. When submitting an abstract, please choose the one that best fits your topic. Use the examples as references.

Note that the organizers may reclassify your submission to a different theme depending on other submissions.

Coupled Processes

E.g., improved understanding of coupling of any natural and/or anthropogenic thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical-bio-gas processes within soils and rocks, biogeochemical processes for improving or stabilizing soils, multi-phase flow, etc.

Soil-Atmosphere Interaction

E.g., role of vegetation in sustainable management of slopes and geostructures, vegetation controls on urban flooding, geotechnics of the soil critical zone: creation or restoration of full soil functionality, etc.

Surface Containment

E.g., landfill liners and environmental barriers, gas generation and extraction, capping systems for landfills and polluted sites, etc.

Clean-up and Remediation

E.g., novel characterization of contaminated sites, pollutant retardation and degradation processes, active barriers for polluted sites, bio-remediation of metals and radionuclides, natural attenuation and enhanced bioremediation of organic pollutants, etc.

Waste Geotechnics

E.g., waste characterization, radioactive waste disposal, carbon capture and storage, waste degradation and settlement, mining and mineral extraction wastes, etc.

Energy Geotechnics

E.g. energy geo-storage and geo-structures, numerical methods in energy geotechnics, geoenvironmental aspects of energy geotechnics, geosynthetics in energy applications, geotechnical challenges for energy infrastructure, etc.

Bio-inspired/mediated Geotechnics

E.g., hazard mitigation, environmental protection and restoration, ground improvement, etc.

Reclamation

E.g., environmental aspects of land reclamation, soil improvement, ground stabilization and its effects on contamination, coastal landfills, etc.
