National conference on geotechnics and foundations – Bucharest
September 2 @ 09:00 - September 5 @ 15:00
GeoStru will be present at the XIV National Conference of Geotechnics and Foundations which will take place in Bucharest (Ramada Park) between 2 and 5 September 2020.
The National Conference on Geotechnics and Foundations is the most important discussion forum for members of the geotechnical engineering community in Romania, but also the place where the trends and concerns of the next 4 years are outlined.
The 14th edition of the National Conference on Geotechnics and Foundations will be held in Bucharest, organized by the Romanian Society of Geotechnics and Foundations (SRGF) of the Bucharest Branch, together with the Technical Construction University of Bucharest (UTCB), from 2 to 5.09. 2020, at Ramada Parc Hotel.
The conference is under the motto “Linking geotechnical engineering from Romania to European trends”, wanting to present new developments at European level, together with national issues.
The objectives of the CNGF2020 conference are to disseminate the knowledge and experience acquired to all the players in the sector and collaborate with them, to tackle both research – innovation themes, but above all practical ones, the approach of interdisciplinary topics, the provision of a discussion forums, as well as young geotechnical involvement.
The conference topics are current and interesting, illustrating both tradition and modernity, as well as the proposed program. Following the idea of Connecting to European trends, the program includes, in addition to the discussion sessions on the conference topics, two plenary sessions that will bring the news internationally and nationally and define the directions for the future. ITwo well-known international speakers will speak, Dr. Andrew Bond – president of the CEN technical committee for Eurocode 7 (SC7 / TC250) until 2019 and Prof. Dietmar Adam – Director of the Institute of Geotechnics and of the Research Unit in engineering of the Technical University of Vienna, Austria. In addition to these, there will be other guests of the brand from abroad, in addition, of course, to the recognized personalities of the sector in Romania.
A novelty of the CNGF2020 is the competition for young geotechnicians EXCELSIOR Young, a replica of the ISSMGE “The Bright Spark Lecture Award”. Therefore, the articles written by young geotechnicians under the age of 35 as single author will be judged by a special commission and the prizes offered consist of the opportunity to present the respective works in plenary session or discussions.
Furthermore, in the same idea of renewal and connection to modern trends, which also includes BIM technology, a training course on the application of BIM in geotechnical engineering will be organized.
The CNGF2020 conference will also include a technical exhibition for companies in the sector, an opportunity for them to present their products, results, technologies.
Geostru will be present as sponsor of the event.
