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.
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!
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.
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:
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
E.g., waste characterization, radioactive waste disposal, carbon capture and storage, waste degradation and settlement, mining and mineral extraction wastes, etc.
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.
E.g., hazard mitigation, environmental protection and restoration, ground improvement, etc.
E.g., environmental aspects of land reclamation, soil improvement, ground stabilization and its effects on contamination, coastal landfills, etc.
