The International Symposium on Energy Geotechnics (SEG) is organized every four years under the auspices of the Technical Committee on Energy Geotechnics (TC-308) of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE). Recognizing the strong need for shared knowledge in innovative and challenging applications on energy geotechnics, SEG aims to serve as a forum for promoting the exchange of ideas, practices and state-of-the-art on a broad range of topics in the area.

The upcoming edition of the symposium series, SEG-2018, will be held on the 26th-28th of September 2018 at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), with the Laboratory of Soil Mechanics (LMS) serving as the local organizing committee. Keynote lectures from the most prominent researchers and practitioners in the field, state-of-the-art lectures and technical sessions focusing on the task forces of TC-308 and discussion sessions for compiling the contributions of the day will be a part of SEG-2018. Please take a look at the envisioned program. Our flyer may also be of interest.

Contributions on various topics related to the energy geotechnics field including carbon sequestration, energy geostructures, hydraulic fractured sediments, nuclear waste deposits and many more are encouraged in the scope of SEG-2018. To see the full list of the symposium topics please visit the following link.

Researchers working on these challenging topics are invited to present their most recent advances. Practitioners are invited to share their experience on various topics of energy geotechnics where presentations on case studies are strongly encouraged. Moreover, SEG-2018 puts an emphasis on discussing innovative ideas and highly encourages the presentation of patents and start-ups in the broad spectrum of energy geotechnics. Please visit the submissions tab to see the types of contributions eligible for SEG-2018.

If you are interested in making a submission to SEG 2018, note that the deadline for abstract submission is October 30 th 2017. Please visit the important dates section for more information and the submissions section to make your submission.

Full papers will be included in the proceedings of the symposium published by Springer and indexed in Scopus and SpringerLink.
