An International Conference on Rock Joints and Jointed Rock Masses will be held in Tucson, Arizona, during January 4-11, 2009. To obtain information about the conference, please visit the URL http://www.jointedrock2009.org. If you are interested in either contributing a paper for the conference or participating as a short course lecturer, workshop organizer or as an attendee, exhibitor please fill out the Preliminary Information Form available on the website (under the Registration section). Please note that the deadline to receive abstracts is April 30th, 2008

The ‘GEO-’ series of Conference is an assemblage of CI-Premier’s earlier Geotechnical Engineering Conferences, i.e., the Deep Foundation cum Pile Talk, Geosynthetics & Geotextiles, Anchored Structures, Land Slides & Slope Stability and Tunnelling. Under the recommendation of the Chairmen of previous conferences, the area in Rock Mechanics, Engineering Geology and Geoenvironmental issues are now included in the Conference. Download PDF.

This conference aims to disseminate and promote the advancement in the fields of Engineering Geology particularly in Malaysia and other regions in the world. It will also include presentations to provide a fruitful exchange between researchers from all over the world. Visit www.cipremier.com for more details. Download PDF.

Dear fellow geoscientists,

Since 1878, the International Geological Congress - IGC has every four years been the meeting place for people interested in Earth Science, and in 2008 the Nordic countries will arrange the 33rd International Geological Congress in Oslo, Norway. 2008 will be ‘The Year of Earth Sciences’ including the 33rd IGC, the International Year of Planet Earth (IYPE), and the International Polar Year (IPY). With its strong emphasis on cross-disciplinary symposia, Earth sciences’ societal impact, and on the Arctic, the Congress in Oslo will give you a unique opportunity to discuss high-level science in a broad perspective. Even with the best preparations, however, the success of the meeting depends on your participation. We have a vision of seeing up to 8-10 000 of you in Oslo at the 33rd IGC, the Geoscience World Congress 2008. There are a number of reasons for you to help us make this vision come true:

  • The IGCs are arranged only every 4 years, and comprise the whole gamut of the Earth Sciences. The Congress focuses on topics which are of utmost importance for our modern society.
  • The 33rd IGC will be a showcase for themes related to the International Year of Planet Earth and the International Polar Year, and will aim at showing the world that the Earth system sciences are the foundation for a sustainable development.
  • The Congress will include a number of pre- and post-congress excursions to all the Nordic countries, as well as to the Arctic regions of Greenland and Svalbard. In addition to great geology, you will also see magnificent scenery, created by active geological processes.
  • The lively and international city of Oslo, founded 1000 years ago, with its beautiful surroundings and spectacular geology.
  • The 33rd IGC will be the best meeting place for geologists from the entire world.

Since the first IGC in 1878, the Earth Sciences have experienced a period of increased specialisation. Now is the time for a more holistic view on the Earth sciences and the 33rd IGC is the best forum!

We wish you all welcome to Oslo in 2008.
