CPEG2020 is organized by ISSMGE TC215 (Technical Committee 215 on Environmental Geotechnics) whose purpose is to spread the state-of-the-art and -practice of the main areas of Environmental Geotechnics to practitioners and researchers working in this field, as well as individuals in other professional areas (e.g., chemical engineering, environmental engineering). The TC215 is devoted to a number of activities such as organizing and supporting technically the main workshops and conferences on these topics, setting up task forces meant to disseminate knowledge in this field, to promote new initiatives, to increase participation at local and global events related to the geo-environment, to encourage international and interdisciplinary cooperation.
CPEG2020 is being organized with these goals in mind.
You can find further information about the work of TC215 at our official website:
I am delighted to invite you to the third ‘International Symposium on Coupled Phenomena in Environmental Geotechnics (CPEG2020)’ that will be held in the city of Kyoto on October 28th – 29th (Thursday – Friday), 2020.
CPEG2020 is organized under the auspices of the Technical Committee TC215 (Environmental Geotechnics) of ISSMGE, and follows the very successful first two CPEG symposiums held in Torino (Italy) in 2013, and in Leeds (UK) in 2017.
CPEG2020 will be hosted in conjunction with the Japanese Geotechnical Society (JGS) and Kyoto University, and it will be followed by the ‘Fifth World Landslide Forum’ from November 2nd, making this a great opportunity to join both ISSMGE events in the Ancient Capital of Japan.
As we polish the details of the symposium, we will update the CPEG2020 website with further information, including keynote speakers, detailed symposium themes, and key dates. Please, keep the address of this site (www.cpeg2020.org) among your bookmarks for updated information.
I look forward to seeing you all in Kyoto in 2020.
Chair of CPEG2020
