The Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (The AusIMM) is pleased to announce that it will host PACRIM 2015 at the Conrad Hotel, Hong Kong from 18-21 March 2015.

PACRIM is a quadrennial congress and will focus on research, exploration and development of mineral deposits around the Pacific Rim. Its appeal extends far and wide to geologists, geophysicists, geochemists exploring in the Pacific Rim and people interested in the mineralisation processes of active tectonic margins as well as those developing the projects which follow discovery in these regions.

49th US Rock Mechanics / Geomechanics Symposium

The American Rock Mechanics Association invites you to submit an abstract to the U.S. annual conference on rock mechanics and geomechanics, and visit the beautiful and vibrant city of San Francisco, California.

11th International Symposium on Rock Fragmentation by Blasting

  • 24-26 August, 2015
  • Sydney, Australia
  • Website

We invite local and international delegates to join some 200 colleagues to learn, inspire, and share knowledge across the mining, quarrying and construction industries, all with a blasting focus. We encourage participation by all practitioners, academics, researchers, regulators and manufacturers. We aspire to continue the tradition of creating and sharing new science and engineering in the field of blasting.

Embankment Prediction Symposium – Call for EOI

Are you interested in the application of numerical methods to the prediction of embankment deformations and the behaviour of footings?

Yes? Well you may also be interested in the following invitation:

The Australian Research Council-funded Centre of Excellence for Geotechnical Science and Engineering (CGSE) invites practising engineers and academics to make and submit predictions of the performance of an embankment constructed using prefabricated vertical drains on soft clay and/or the load-displacement response of a shallow foundation loaded to failure on soft clay.

All manner of predictions are encouraged and invited. These may range from hand drawn curves based merely on experience and engineering judgment, to the most sophisticated 3D numerical analysis incorporating advanced geotechnical models.

Field observations and the time history of the embankment behaviour, as well as the various predictions of that behaviour will be presented and discussed in a special Prediction Symposium to be held in Newcastle, Australia, on 9 and 10 of September 2016.

If you might be interested in submitting a prediction please advise
Kirstin Dunncliff by 1 April 2015.
