Suzanne Lacasse will present keynote lecture 1, following the opening seremony on Monday morning September 2. In addition, NGI-employees will present 14 papers on different themes in a variety of sessions during the conference.

Main themes for 17th ECSMGE are:

  • Modelling and experimental assessment of geomaterials
  • Geotechnical construction and soil improvement
  • Geohazards, earthquakes and mitigation
  • Environment, water and energy
  • Historical heritage preservation
  • Special and specific Issues

Most of NGI's expertise areas can find themes and presentations of interest. A list of NGI's delegates to 17th ECSMGE, including who will hold presentations, and its title, is shown below.

NGI will also have an exhibition stand, no. 4-5, outside the main lecture hall, Kaldalon at the Harpa Conference Center, with display of NGI activities and serving of refreshments. We expect that NGI's stand will be a meeting point for visitors, representatives of NGI's clients and cooperating partners and NGI delegates at ECSMGE.
