Program > Forum on Geomechanics and Geotechnical Engineering

State Key Laboratory of Geomechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (SKLGME), founded in 2007 under the auspices of Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology, is hosted by the Institute of Rock and Soil Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

As one of premier research institutions in China, SKLGME is dedicated to fundamental research and technological innovation in the field of Geomechanics and geo-engineering, with orientation to the national and global strategic needs in construction of significant infrastructure, geo-hazard mitigation, utilization of natural resources, underground storage of fossil fuels, geological disposal of radioactive nuclear waste, CO2 utilization and sequestration, soild waste disposal and far beyond. SKLGME is also a vibrant institution for professional training and academic exchange.

The annual meeting on the Visiting Scholars Program of SKLGME will be organized by SKLGME from this year. Every year we will have different topics generated by SKLGME Director Board Meeting, and the reports about progress and results of some related Proposals approved will be invited, presenting by the PIs during the annual meeting.

The 1st annual meeting themed “Forum on Geomechanics and Geotechnical Engineering” will be held during EUUS2019 Conference in Hongshan Hotel. Welcome all scholars and their research group members approved and the scholars who have intention to apply for the Program to joining us and having frontier exchanges, although the scholars who have an on-going Program shall participate in. All expenses (travel expenses, accommodation, registration fee, etc.) will be paid from the Scholarship for Visiting Scholars Program of SKLGME if the remaining fund is enough. We are anticipating your active participation.
