Prospective authors are invited to submit abstracts in a broad range of topics in the field of earthquake geotechnical engineering and soil dynamics. Abstract submissions are limited to one abstract per lead/submitting author. Please visit for more information. We look forward to seeing you in Christchurch in 2015.

12th Australia New Zealand Conference on Geomechanics – Call for Abstracts

The call for abstracts for the 12th Australia New Zealand Conference on Geomechanics to be held in Wellington, New Zealand, 22 – 25th February 2015, is now open.

Click here for further details and instructions on how to submit abstracts, which closes on 5th May 2014.

The overall Conference theme is The Changing Face of the Earth – Geomechanics & Human Influence. The theme reflects the fact that the worldwide community is currently facing great changes – catering for growing urban population and enhanced infrastructure requirements and expectations; and changing human perceptions and awareness of the effects of our actions particularly with respect to environmental impacts and risk of failure.

The Conference organisers look forward to receiving your abstracts.

East Australian Ground Control Group

The East Australian Ground Control Group (EAGCG) comprises over 300 underground and surface mining focussed rock engineers, tunnelling and civil geotechnical engineers. The Group provides opportunities for members to get together at two, two-day, meetings each year on specific topics in rock engineering. Members get to discuss practical issues and share ideas and experiences. The meetings have a good reputation in the local and international rock engineering communities due to their pragmatic focus on issues concerning practitioners and the high quality of the presentations.

The Group invites members of the AGS to attend its next meeting, the details of which can be viewed HERE.

AGS Engineering Geology Course – Wollongong

  • September 2015
  • University of Wollongong, Wollongong and nearby field sites.

The principal objective of this course is to teach students how to apply geological skills in the field to help solve engineering problems. This will be carried out by using guided field exercises, in which the students learn by carrying out realistic project related work in the field whilst being supervised by very experienced practitioners.
