Mitchell Lecture

Fernando Schnaid
On the geo-mechanics and geo-characterization of tailings

Prof. Schnaid from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil has accepted the invitation from the Organizing Committee and TC102 to give the Mitchell Lecture at ISC'6 conference.



Bright Spark Lecture

The Organizing Committee wishes to encourage young ISSMGE members from all fields of geotechnical engineering - from theoretical research to construction - to submit their research/work by incorporating the Bright Spark Lecture award in the conference program. This will allow a young (36 years old or younger at the last day of the conference) geotechnical engineer to present his/her findings in a plenary lecture at the conference.

Application details will be announced later.



The Organizers togeather with the Local and Scientific Commitees are working hard to select keynote lectures and invite speakers to the conference. They will be announced as soon as we are able to confirm them.
