The 3rd International Conference on Site Characterization

     TC-16 of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE), National Chiao Tung University (NCTU), Southeast Asian Geotechnical Society (SEAGS) and Taiwan Geotechnical Society (TGS) are pleased to invite you to attend the 3rd International Conference on Site Characterization (ISC'3).  The conference will be held in Taipei, Taiwan during April 1-4, 2008.  It will showcase professionals, equipment, methods, and organizations associated with geotechnical and geophysical site characterization.  With short courses, keynote/technical presentations delivered by some of the leading experts in the area, we look forward to an exciting and rewarding event.  The ISC’3 is expected to draw experts and practitioners from every continent who work in infrastructure, construction, mining, petroleum, geotechnical and the geoenvironmental fields.

     As the capital city of Taiwan, Taipei (www.taipei.gov.tw) is a business as well as cultural center.  There are plenty of local attractions for sightseeing and shopping, restaurants for those who like to venture into authentic oriental cuisines. With the modern mass rapid transit system (www.trtc.com.tw), it is safe and easy for international travelers to move around in Taipei.  For those who would like to explore further into the island, the newly completed high speed rail (www.thsrc.com.tw) can take you to most major cities of Taiwan within 90 minutes.

      Please continue to visit the website to obtain updated information and to register your interest in participating.

Main theme
Lessons learned and future challenges in site characterization for construction and geo-environmental engineering projects. There are some proposed sub-themes.

The Third James K. Mitchell Lecture
The Mitchell Lecture was established by TC 16 of ISSMGE to honor James K. Mitchell, Emeritus Professor of the University of California-Berkeley and Emeritus Professor of Virginia Tech. Professor Mitchell has made significant contributions in the area of in-situ testing related to the development of testing methods, their interpretation as well as advancements in environmental geotechnics, ground improvement, and soil behavior. His book on the Fundamentals of Soil Behavior was just re-issued in its 3rd edition by John Wiley & Sons (2005). The 1st Mitchell Lecture was given by Professor Hai-Sui Yu of the University of Nottingham during ISC’2 (Porto) in 2004 and entitled: “In-situ soil testing: from mechanics to interpretation”. The 2nd Mitchell Lecture titled “Undisturbed sand strength from seismic cone tests” was delivered by Professor Paul W. Mayne of Georgia Institute of Technology at the GeoShanghai International Conference in 2006. The ISC’3 intends to continue this tradition by hosting the 3rd Mitchell Lecture. The speaker and title of the lecture will be announced later on the website.


Program and Conference Format
The conference will invite active and prominent researchers and practitioners to deliver keynote speeches in the proposed conference themes. A selection of the published conference papers will be presented and a Reporter’s summary report will be delivered for each sub-theme and then followed by a discussion session. Discussion topics will be drawn from special format of poster sessions organized in the conference. During each poster session, structured short oral presentations will be chaired by a Reporter and prepared for discussion by an invited panel in the discussion session immediately after the Reporter’s summary report.
