About Indexing

As we have received several messages inquiring about whether or not CPEG2020 proceedings will be indexed, we wanted to state here that, as an official ISSMGE TC215 (Technical Committee 215 on Environmental Geotechnics) symposium, we will submit the final proceedings for indexing at ISSMGE partner indexed databases. As soon as they are online, we will include the information in our official website.

If you´d wish to receive timely updates about this and other CPEG2020 news, don´t forget to subscribe to our newslist by following the instructions on the right column of this page.

Autumn Colors in Kyoto

Autumn is the best time of the year to see beautifully colored foliage in Kyoto. At various points in the city, on the street and at temples/shrines, you will find maple trees colored in red as well as other colorful trees. On Yoshida Campus of Kyoto University, too, red autumn leaves and a number of bright yellow gingko trees attract visitors during this season.

CPEG2020 Venue

We are delighted to confirm that the venue for the 3rd International Symposium on Coupled Phenomena in Environmental Geotechnics, CPEG2020, will be the International Halls at Kyoto University’s Clock Tower! This building, beloved by the entire university community, has been the most recognizable symbol of Kyoto University since its opening, and it’s currently one of its premier centers for academic exchange and a platform of communication to the public. This makes this the best possible venue for CPEG2020!

Kyoto University’s Clock Tower is located right in front of the main gate at the Yoshida Main Campus and, as such, is of easy access from any corner of the city. You can find further information on reaching the venue (and Kyoto City) in the page Venue and Travel of our website.

We look forward to meeting you all at this historical building, next year!

Download the Call for Abstracts!

If interested, you can now download a PDF file with the CPEG2020 call for abstracts! You are welcomed to print copies on your own and to distribute them among your colleagues. Let’s make this a very successful event!

And don’t forget to upload your abstract proposals to the ISSMGE Conference Review Platform by November 30th.

UPDATE (Nov. 2nd): If you have downloaded the PDF version of the CPEG2020 Call for Abstracts before November 2nd, please, download it again as we have updated it with a corrected email address. We apologize for any inconvenience.

CPEG2020 is open for abstract submission!

Thirteen months ahead of CPEG2020, which will be held in the city of Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan, on October 29th-30th, 2020, we are delighted to open the call for abstracts!

To do so, please upload the abstract of your proposed submission to the ISSMGE Conference Review Platform:

https://www.issmge.org/publications/review-platform/conferences/cpeg2020

The length limit is of 1500 characters (approximately 300 words) and the submission will be open for 60 days until November 30th, 2019.

We look forward to your contributions and to meeting with you all in Kyoto, in 2020!

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.

Are you in Hangzhou for the 8ICEG? Then drop by the front desk of the conference venue and take one of our beautiful pamphlets! While our Call for Abstracts is not out, yet, these pamphlets already include some new information about CPEG2020 that we will later update, here, on our website. Do you want to be one of the first ones to know? It’s just as simple as taking one with you!

Now let’s go back to enjoy the last day of the conference at the Sheraton Hangzhou Wetland Park Resort, and let’s meet again in two years at CPEG2020 in Kyoto!!!
