20th International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ICSMGE) 2022
Hosted by the Australia Geomechanics Society, the theme of the International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering - ICSMGE 2022 was “A Geotechnical Discovery Downunder – Geotechnical Diversity Awaits You”.
Bringing global industry specialists together to discover the innovation that lies where practical problems meet leading theoretical developments, the conference also offered an opportunity to discover Australia.
ICSMGE 2022 focussed on the application of theory and the discovery that comes when world-class minds come together on the geotechnical problems facing our world.
"Sydney is on one of the most beautiful harbours in the world and you can come straight out of your lecture theatre and look out at a beautiful city and the beautiful harbour. The city is a drawcard…and the facilities are world class."
Emeritus Professor John Carter
BESydney’s bidding experts assisted the Local Organising Committee (LOC) in winning the bid to host the conference in Sydney which was significant because it was the first time it was held in the Australasian region, which has the largest per capita membership of any of the international societies of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering.
With the convention centre located in the city centre, delegates had access to first class accommodation.
Sydney’s attractions, fine dining and arts and cultural experiences are just a short distance on foot, by public transport or car making it easy to enjoy Sydney outside of the program.
