The 2018 International Conference on

Geomechanics and Engineering (GAE)

Dear Colleagues:

We are very happy to announce the “2018 International Conference on Geomechanics
and Engineering (ICGE18)
”​ to be held as a participating conference of ACEM18 (2018
World Congress on Civil, Environmental, and Materials Research
) / Structures18
on August 28 – August 31, 2018, in Incheon, Korea. The congress venue is Songdo Convensia
in Incheon, Korea.  Opened in 2008, It is a world class convention center located in the
newly-developed Songdo International City of Incheon. It is also Asia’s First LEED-certified
‘Green’ Convention Center, an environment-friendly building that minimizes the elements that
harms the environment and maximizes the energy efficiency with improved design,
construction and operation routines.

Being one of the twelve participating conferences of ACEM18/Structures18, ICGE18
will provide an excellent opportunity to look into the up-to-the-date developments in the
allied fields which may give participants inspiration and motivation for developing their
own future research topics.

You are cordially invited to participate in this interesting event. Please refer to the themes of
ICGE18​ as below:

– Computational Geomechanics

– Cross-anisotropic Sand Deposits

the “MS proposal form” and submit to us via email.   Detail guidelines and benefits
for Mini Symposium or Session organizers: [Mini Symposium Organizers].

  Since the ICGE18 Conference will be held in close association with Techno-Press
journals, in particular with the “Geomechanics and Engineering​s,
An International Journa
l” (SCI(E) Indexed), you may submit the journal
version paper for possible publication in regular or special issue of the journal
as well (2 special issues have been published from the former ICGE16).​
Some selected papers will be considered for publication in the “Conference
