The 2nd IACGE International Conference on Geotechnical and Earthquake Engineering was held in Chengdu of Sichuan Province during October 25-27, 2013. The conference was sponsored by the International Association of Chinese Geotechnical Engineers (IACGE), and the Division of Civil, Hydraulic and Architecture Engineering of Chinese Academy of Engineering. Nearly 200 experts and scholars from the United States, Britain, Japan, China etc. attended the conference.
The conference papers were published by The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and others on Chinese Journal of Rock Mechanics and Engineering and Journal of Southwest Jiaotong University. Changjiang River Scientific Research Institute (CRSRI), as an organizer of the conference, contributed 10 papers (7 published by ASCE) and organized a delegation of 11 to attend the conference, which enhanced the publicity of our scientific research achievements and improved the research level of relevant disciplines.
Professor Wu Aiqing, deputy director of Key Laboratory of Geotechnical Mechanics & Engineering of MWR, addressed the conference with a report entitled “Applications and Extensions of the Chinese National Standard for Engineering Classifications of Rock Masses”. Pan Jiajun, Hu Bo, and Tong Jun also give special group reports.
Through the communication, CRSRI delegation presented our recent achievements in geotechnical and earthquake engineering fields, further publicized CRSRI, followed the frontier progress of the disciplines, and laid a good foundation for future cooperation and discipline development.
