Fourth International Symposium on Computational Geomechanics (ComGeo IV)comgeo

Assisi, Italy. 2-4 May, 2018


ComGeo series of Symposia, a sequel to NUMOG (Numerical Models in Geomechanics), is a multi-disciplinary forum for exchange of views between researchers, engineers and students. The format of this Symposium will be similar to that of previous ComGeo meetings; i.e. limited number of participants, high technical standard and an informal style promoting discussion. The scope will cover a broad range of research topics in soil and rock mechanics, including developments in computational/analytical techniques, their application to practical engineering problems as well as innovations in experimental testing and interpretation. Original contributions in the areas of petroleum, mining, geo-environmental, nuclear and off-shore engineering, are also welcome.
