The Organising Committee on Physical Modelling of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE TC104) is pleased to announce the 8th International Conference on Physical Modelling in Geotechnics (ICPMG2014).
The conference will continue the successful series of conferences initiated in 1988 in Paris and most recently held at ETH Zurich in 2010. ICPMG2014 will disseminate and communicate the latest developments in all aspects of physical modelling to both the academic and practitioner communities.
The conference will be hosted by The University of Western Australia (UWA) in Perth over 4 days during January 2014. UWA has a long-standing and well-known involvement in physical modelling research, with two geotechnical centrifuges having been established within the Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems (COFS) in 1989 and 1999. Researchers using 1g and gravity-enhanced modelling facilities are strongly encouraged to submit papers to the conference and come to Perth to visit the UWA physical modelling facilities, share their latest research outcomes and enjoy the cooling waters of the Indian Ocean.
The conference will include many opportunities to meet and have discussions with colleagues from all around the world, via the main technical programme and the eclectic range of social events. The programme will also include sessions for engineers and technicians operating physical modelling facilities, building on the successful scheme at the 7th ICPMG in Zurich.
The COFS team at UWA is looking forward to welcoming you to Perth in January 2014 for four days of lively discussion under the beautiful Australian sunshine.
