The Newcastle chapter of the Australian Geomechanics Society is excited to announce that it is planning a one day symposium for the Hunter Valley and Northern regions of NSW, on all topics related to our profession. It is our aim to bring representatives from government, industry and academic institutions in our region together, so that we may share project insights, explore new practices, and discuss emerging challenges. This is a unique opportunity for individuals or teams to showcase their work and contribute to the advancement of geomechanics and it’s allied fields.
