Name:8th International Symposium on Environmental Vibration and Transportation Geodynamics (ISEV2018)
Description:The 8th International Symposium on Environmental Vibration and Transportation Geodynamics (formerly named as the International Symposium on Environmental Vibration) will be held on October 27-28, 2018 at Central South University, Changsha, China. In 2003, the first symposium was initiated by Prof. H. Takemiya of Okayama University, Japan and Prof. Yunmin Chen of Zhejiang University, China, and held in Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China. The subsequent six symposia were successfully convened in Okayama University, Japan (2005), National Taiwan University, Taipei (2007), Beijing Jiaotong University, China (2009), Southwest Jiaotong University, China (2011), Tongji University, China (2013), and Zhejiang University, China (2016), respectively. With the increasing impact over academia and industry, the symposia have attracted much attention from government officials, scientific and research communities, and engineering professionals. Geotechnical challenges associated with dynamic loads on railroad track and road pavements often require scientific and technological breakthroughs for design innovations. To effectively reflect such frontiers, this symposium has been renamed as International Symposium on Environmental Vibration and Transportation Geodynamics since 2016, and held under the auspices of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) TC202 Transportation Geotechnics Committee. The scope of the 8th International Symposium on Environmental Vibration and Transportation Geodynamics 2018 (ISEV 2018) will continue to cover environmental vibrations induced by industrial, civilian and transportation activities, problems associated with dynamic vehicular loading on road foundations, and sustainability challenges of transportation infrastructures and the built environment. The symposium will consist of workshops (including one dedicated to Young Transportation Geotechnics Engineers) and plenary and breakout sessions as well as a technical exhibition for dissemination of research findings and engineering best practices. Since it will serve as a significant platform for academic exploration, experience exchange, and thought inspiration amongst the practitioners engaged in management, design and construction of large-scale civil and transportation infrastructure, researchers, academics and students; engineers; planning, design construction and management engineering companies; decision makers; transport infrastructures managers; owners and governmental bodies are especially encouraged to attend this symposium. Associated with the ISEV 2018 event, the 2nd Young Transportation Geotechnics Engineers (YTGE) meeting will be concurrently held on October 26, 2018. The 1st meeting of the YTGE associated with the 3rd International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics (ICTG) was successfully convened at University of Minho, Guimarães, Portugal on September 4, 2016. This forum was organized and hosted by students at the University of Minho with student participation from all around the world. It covered all the disciplines in transportation geotechnics (roads, highways, bridges, airports, railways, waterways, canals and terminals- harbors). For the first time, it created a knowledge exchange network and compiled what the best and most advanced practices worldwide in the transportation geotechnics field are either in academic or in industrial domains. The YTGE network will also be created in the framework of the ISEV 2018 event and will be held in Changsha, China on October 26, 2018. The main goal of this forum will be to increase the attractiveness of the transportation geotechnics field for younger generations of geotechnical engineers (less than 35 years old), whilst contributing to strengthen the role of young engineers in society. The network will be responsible for organizing several initiatives for the young geotechnical community. The aims are to provide an international forum for doctoral and post-doctoral students as well as research engineers and engineers involved in innovation in transportation geotechnics, to present and discuss their main research results, and to identify future research and engineering practice needs. Relevant work related to all disciplines in transportation geotechnics are sought out for the 2nd YTGE meeting in the form of a two-page extended abstract and workshop presentation. All submissions (extended abstract and presentation) will be compiled into a USB drive and made available to all YTGE members. https://www.isev2018.cn/welcome
