Young Geotechnical Engineers Conference (YGEC) 30 May 2016, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


Dear All,

In conjunction with the 19th Southeast Asian Geotechnical Conference & 2nd Association of Geotechnical Societies in Southeast Asia Conference (19SEAGC-2AGSSEAC), which will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 31 May to 3 June 2016, a parallel Young Geotechnical Engineers Conference (YGEC) will be held on 30 May 2016.

The theme of the YGEC is “Contributions of Young Geotechnical Engineers to Nation Building”, which acknowledges the valuable contributions of young, enterprising and energetic Geotechnical Engineers working in increasingly challenging projects. We wish to invite Young Geotechnical Engineers (those aged 35 years and below by 30 May 2016) to participate actively in this conference, as it offers a common platform to present their work to their peers. Participation will be based on first-come-first-served basis up to a maximum of 60 participants.

In addition, YGEC participants are encouraged to attend the first day program of the main conference on 31 May 2016 (registration available at an attractive price), which includes the Opening Keynote Address, Chin Fung Kee Lecture and Special Lectures to be delivered by distinguished geotechnical experts and eminent academicians.
