About GEDMAR08


The 2nd International Conference on Geotechnical Engineering for Disaster Mitigation and Rehabilitation (GEDMAR08) is an upcoming international conference under the auspices of Technical Committee of Geotechnical Engineering for Coastal Disaster Mitigation and Rehabilitation (TC39), Technical Committee of Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering and Associated Problems (TC4) of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE), and the Joint Working Group on Geotechnical Engineering for Disaster Mitigation and Rehabilitation (JWG-DMR).

GEDMAR08 will be jointly organized by Hohai University (China), Chinese Institute of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (CISMGE, CCES), and Chinese Society of Environmental Geotechnics (CSEG, CSRME) and held from May 30 to June 2 2008 in Nanjing, China.

The main theme of GEDMAR08 is to enhance disaster mitigation and rehabilitation capabilities through research and development. The proposed sub-themes include but are not limited to:

1. Case histories on past and recent natural disasters (earthquake, tsunami, and landslide)
2. Mechanisms of natural and coastal disasters (soil dynamics, liquefaction, geological and environmental factors, earthquake analysis and modeling, sub-aerial and submarine landslides, and seismic ground motions)
3. Disaster mitigation and rehabilitation techniques (ground treatment, design against earthquake and other natural disasters, and coastal protections)
4. Risk analysis and geohazard predictions (risk mapping, consequence evaluation, and reliability analysis)

Following the first successful conference GEDMR05 held in Singapore in December 2005, GEDMAR08 will provide another unique forum for engineers, academics, construction equipment and materials manufacturers, suppliers, and government officials to present and exchange the latest developments and case histories related to geotechnical engineering for disaster prevention, mitigation, and rehabilitation.
