Details see:   www.isc-4.com

Note: Abstracts due February 28, 2011


Dear Members of TC102/TC16,


Please share this email with your colleagues and countrymen:


The ISC-4 will be held near the beautiful coastal town of Porto de Galinhas, Pernambuco – Brazil, on September 18-21, 2012 and has been established under the responsibility of TC-102/TC-16 on In-Situ Testing ( www.webforum.com/tc16 ) of the International Society of Soil Mechanical and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE: www.issmge.org), the Brazilian Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ABMS), and the Federal University of Pernambuco, Brasil (UFPE). The fourth conference (ISC-4) follows the successful series of international conferences held in Atlanta (ISC-1, 1998), Porto (ISC-2, 2004), and Taipei (ISC-3, 2008).


Researchers, geotechnical engineers, and practitioners involved with topics on geotechnical & geophysical site characterization using in-situ testing, sampling, drilling, probing, penetrometers, pressuremeters, and nondestructive wave techniques for soil and rock exploration are invited to participate.  Papers involving new equipment, methods of interpretation, case studies, and developing concepts on the use and implementation of these technologies for site investigations involving buildings, bridges, dams, excavations, tunnels, liquefaction, ports, and environmental concerns are welcome. ISC-4 Bulletin One is attached with more details. In addition to an Exhibitor Hall and poster sessions, technical presentations by select authors, several keynote presentations, and the 2012 James K. Mitchell Lecture will be given by Dr. Peter K. Robertson, in addition to social, cultural, and touring events in the region. Please do not miss this wonderful opportunity to visit the Brazilian coast and participate in this momentous occasion. 


Below is given a few short summary about the international support of this event. For details, see our website at:  www.isc-4.com


Thank you in advance,
