The Announcement of

International Symposium on GeoMechanics and

Deep Underground Engineering

With rapid development of deep resources exploitation and underground engineering in recent years, more and more problems have emerged in deep geomechanics and underground engineering. In order to promote academic exchanges, get abreast of the latest worldwide research progress and development in the field of deep geomechanics and underground engineering, exchange and expand new theories, new achievements and new experiences, and promote the development of the related theories, technologies and improvement of scientific research level, the International Symposium on Deep Geomechanics and Underground Engineering is to be held on October 19 to 21, 2009 in Xuzhou City, Jiangsu Province.

The conference will focus on on exchanging views on scientific issues such as the solid-liquid-gas- temperature coupling effect of deep geotechnical mass and its interaction with the underground structures under the complex deep geological environments accompanied by increase of deep crustal stress, water inflow and ground temperature, and exploring the development tendency of researches in deep geomechanics. Renowned scholars will be invited to give theme lectures and to conduct extensive discussions with the participants by means of keynote speeches and interactive communication.

Experts, scholars and scientific workers in the related fields are welcomed to write for the conference and actively participate in the conference.
