19th SEAGC-2nd AGSSEAC: In Kuala Lumpur from 31st May to 3rd June, 2016: PLEASE NOTE THE KEY DATES FOR SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS ETC

The Southeast Asian Conferences have always been a very popular event well attended by all from all continents. I personally enjoyed being involved in the 5th and 9th one from AIT in Bangkok. Now it has become more dominant with the involvement of AGSSEA comprising: Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Thailand. Geotechnical Engineering activities are at its peak in these countries; additionally AGSSEA is also having great interest in Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, Philippines, and Bhutan.

In addition; Japan, Korea, India, and most Asian and non_Asian countries participate in the SEAGC-AGSSEAC.

Dr. Ooi Teik Aun is the Co-Chairman of the Conference while the Chairman is Dr. Chan Sin Fatt. Please encourage all to submit abstracts for this Conference and give your strong support by participating in this important event.

“2nd International Workshop on Geomechanics and Energy” Brussels (Belgium) on 3-5 November 2015, under the auspices of EAGE

After the success of the first edition, held in Lausanne in November 2013, the goal of this second edition is to provide a forum for scientists and practicing engineers alike to present the most recent contributions of geomechanics to various fields of energy. The areas of interest are related to geomechanical applications in the subsurface extraction of energy and the storage of waste, including the different levels of investigations: in-situ investigation, laboratory experiment, constitutive modelling and numerical modelling. Specific topics of interest include, but not limited to: (i) hydrocarbon exploration and production, (ii) underground storage, and (iii) geothermal energy.
