2. Transportation Soil Engineering in Cold Regions
St. Petersburg, Russia, May 20, 2019 – May 23, 2019
This conference is organized by the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering and will be held in St. Petersburg, Russia. The conference provides a platform for geotechnical engineers to explore and share their ideas on how to overcome geotechnical problems associated with the planning and building of transportation infrastructure in cold climates. These cold climates include countries such as Canada, Finland, Norway, and Russia where the freeze-thaw and permafrost present tough technical challenges to infrastructure design.
Some topics in the conference include the design, construction and exploitation of high-speed railway subgrade, soil dynamics, earthquake engineering, as well as geotechnical modelling of transport facilities.
3. International Conference on Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering
Roma, Italy, June 17, 2019 – June 20, 2019
The 7th international conference on earthquake and geotechnical engineering will be held in Roma, Italy and will present an opportunity for civil engineers working in the field of geotechnical engineering to share ideas and present their research. It is organized by the Italian Geotechnical Society, or AGI, which have been operating since 1947 to promote geotechnical research in Italy and abroad.
Some topics covered at the conference include ground motion records and prediction, physical modelling, seismic site characterisation, and the impact of liquefaction.
4. Building Materials & Construction Technologies
Stockholm, Sweden, June 20, 2019 – June 21, 2019
This is a conference for professionals in the construction industry to share their experience and expertise on topics related to building materials, construction engineering, and structural engineering. It will be held in Stockholm Sweden and will cover topics such as green building materials, construction technology, cracks in buildings, structural analysis and more.
It is organised by various professors around the world and registrations are now open to attend the conference in 2019.
5. 5th International Conference on Smart Monitoring, Assessment and Rehabilitation of Civil Structures
Potsdam, Germany, August 27, 2019 – August 29, 2019
This conference will be held in the city of Potsdam, Germany and will provide an opportunity for scientists and engineers working in the civil engineering industry to share and present their ideas on building monitoring technology. The conference is sponsored by several organisations including the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa), the Istanbul Technical University (ITU), Turkey, the International Association for Bridge Maintenance and Safety, and more.
Some topics covered in the conference are structural health monitoring, performance and damage assessment, durability issues of structures in harsh environments, and shape memory alloys. Some keynote presentations include FRP Strengthening of Concrete Structures presented by Professor Janet Lees from the University of Cambridge, and the Deformation Area Difference Method for Assessing Bridges presented by Professor Daniele Waldmann-Diederich from the University of Luxembourg.
6. 15th International Congress on the Chemistry of Cement
Prague, Czech Republic, September 16, 2019 – September 20, 2019
The 15th International Congress on the Chemistry of Cement will be held in the city of Prague, Czech Republic and will update professionals in the industry on the latest trends in cement application. The history of the conference date back to 1918 in London where it brought together academics and cement industry workers.
Some topics covered in this upcoming conference include process technology and clinker chemistry, thermodynamics of Portland Cements, binder types and applications, fresh and hardened concrete, and more.
